Regarding KOG. Would this be a good poll? Will the deal with Whiting happen? Less than 2% of outstanding shares are held by insiders. According to Yahoo!Finance more than 75% of outstanding shares are held by institutions. The vote is December 3, 2014.
Again, this is not an investment site, but I could not possibly be more upbeat about the market right now. So many stories. If one has a long horizon. Huge opportunities. A lot of dots to connect. But again, this is not an investment site. Do not make any investment, financial, or relationship decisions based on anything you read here or think you may have read here.
In a long note with a lot of numbers, I make factual and typographical errors; if this information is important to you go to the source.
