Eagle & Beagle

Eagle

This week's eagle was flying pretty close to the ground before it discovered an updraft.

Shares of GMX Resources vaulted 65 percent last week after the Oklahoma City energy company disclosed an infusion of much-needed capital by an arm of the Blackstone Group.

The firm lost $60 million last quarter, but last week said it expects that could be the low point as the company moves its production focus to oil from natural gas. CEO Michael J. Rohleder last week told analysts oil production “will grow significantly” as the company continues that move.

The stock, which last month set a 52-week low of 45 cents, closed Friday at 79 cents.

While the shares remain in penny stock territory, investors should take note that the stock has sold at levels of less than $1 in 2003 — about five years before the stock peaked at more than $80 a share.

Beagle

Many an investor who might shrug off an analyst's downgrade or a rocky earnings report will run away from geopolitical uncertainty.
