Nostra Terra – Some bible readings for Matt Lofgran as he takes the company into the Minus 99.8% club with yet another placing.

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 11 January 2024

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Devout Christian Matt Lofgran always likes to say that he rescued Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG) when he took over in 2009. It was as if Jesus had saved the disciples as the storm raged on the sea of Galilee where their boat was sailing (Mark 4, 3-41). But the reality is that anyone who bought the shares when the great rescuer took over as CEO has now lost 99.8% of their money while Lofgran has made millions in remuneration. You have to pay for talent don’t you? Would it not have been better just to put the company into administration in 2009, to have avoided numerous bailout placings more good money going after bad?
