Have you guys noticed over the last few weeks ....the number of bids for PTA has firmed up huge !!  . there is lot of money on the bid for PTA at most time ...and few sellers .  it appears PTA has a longer term investor mix now, rather than a penny trader ....compared to the early days .... most investors are not so interested and eager in flipping for a penny or two now ...LOL !! ....A more sophisticated larger investor  now is harvesting PTA    ....guess they want in before 2013 and rapid double to triple BOED gains .... and M&A activity . in a nut shell , smart money is moving into the Harvest ....
