Can anyone here tell me what the energy industry thinks of Dr. Kent Moors of Duquesne University? Specifically: how is he regarded by crude oil traders?

I ask because he's increasingly on Fox News preaching visions of doom and gloom. All fine and well. Sometimes, as in the case of Meredith Whitney, someone goes public with something that everyone else doesn't want to see. In my own case, I'm inclined to write him off as the same type of infotainer that Glenn Beck was: he's got his 15 minutes of fame, and he's cashing in on it.

He's apparently hawking some company to his followers that is projecting 1,000%+ returns in a futures linked product, and has gone on the record with a forecast of oil hitting $200 per barrel by July 1. Despite his impressive academic credentials, I'm calling bullshit on this guy.

I'm not in the energy industry, so I'm curious: What do you think?

SOUNDS LIKE? So what you're saying is you haven't even heard of this man and know nothing about him. However, that is no impediment to you insulting his credentials.

Why didn't you just say you know nothing about the man? Why would you express poor opinion of someone you don't know?

I shall guess (and I am honest enough to state that it is a guess): You are an immature bleeding-heart liberal waiting for a handout. When you saw a reference to Fox News, you couldn't resist expressing your hate. So you slandered an innocent person YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. See, it wasn't too hard. Half a nation of people like you elected Obama while knowing nothing about him.

One of these days, you might want to start hiding your ignorance.

See, melvvvar and jec are perfect examples of liberals.

Easily led, they rarely look up raw information to get to the facts. They count on their leaders to "package" viewpoints for them. They are easily "managed" by organizers like Obama, who know that simple slogans will keep the lazy exactly where they belong, on the Democrat plantation.

It is a pleasure knowing that folks like this shall remain at the bottom of the financial and educational totem pole for the rest of their lives, because they keep doing the same things over and over and over - thinking some politician is "looking out for them".

Meanwhile, the politician meets with $40,000-a-plate donors and sells his soul to them, while keeping melvvvar and jec believing he is in their corner.

That is the art of being a politician. Managing the fools, and controlled by the rich.

Liberals never "get it". The rich politicians and their richer donors will never actually raise taxes on themselves to give to the "little people", but they easily keep the sheep believing that they will. It is a pleasure to behold. Especially, knowing that the losers shall blindly remain losers and that their bitterness eats away at them every single day of their lives.

This is what keeps a smile on the face of conservatives, and losers' frowns on the faces of liberals. We always win, because even "your" politicians are one-percenters.

Cheers.

Getting back to UFOinsider's original query......

You can read a somewhat sceptical assessment of Dr Moor's track record as a stock 'teaser' at gumshoe dot com

Alternatively, you can read a rather more formal (and more complete) assessment of Dr Moors at Duquesne University's website duq dot edu.

Here is an extract of Dr Moors' resume taken from Duqesne's website:

"Dr. Moors has advised sixteen world governments (U.S., Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Poland, China, Ecuador, Ghana, Iraq, Kurdistan, Mexico, Nigeria, Bahamas, Morocco and Uganda), governors of several U.S. states, premiers of two Canadian provinces and has been a consultant to private companies, financial institutions, civic movements/organizations and law firms in 28 countries. He has served as an expert witness/consultant to law firms in Chicago, Houston, London, Montreal, Moscow, New York, Philadelphia and Toronto on cases involving a range of issues, including: retail pricing of oil products; crude and oil product contract, trading, representational duties/responsibilities; oil field, petrochemical, transport installation and contract liability; strategic risk assessment planning and application; technical assessment of export taxation; patent infringement; equity and debt valuation; and oil equipment/technology transfer."

I have never met Dr Moors, but I have read several issues of his 'Oil and Energy Investor' newsletter. To me, the obvious query is why a man who appears to be of some standing within academic, industrial and financial circles would attach his name to such a low grade publication, and why Duqesne University woulld tolerate it. But that's a matter for Duquesne and Dr Moors.

12/6/12

You can learn a lot if you just listen to the 75% when he is teaching about energy, and not get hung up on the 25% why you should listen to him.

4/22/13

Well, I worked with Dr. Moors for 4 years, and I can tell you from personal experience that he's legit. No question about it. He's cashing in on his oil and gas expertise. You all would do the same if you could. Sounds more like sour grapes than any legitimate criticism.

11/29/13

Dr. Kent Moors is director and a professor at Duquesne University concerning the Energy Policy Research Group www.duq.edu/about/centers-and-institutes/energy-an... (for everyones info I feel Foxnews and MSNBC aren't creditable news sources to any extent but commentor on this person's question should be limited to solu5ions not opinions, unlike the listed "news" agencies above...)

He is making his money off his news letters, but he survives on giving good advice so investors will keep coming back. He is correct that the energy market is at a volatile time and he has an investment that can generate significant returns in such environments - either up or down. The challenge is to know timing and there are never any guarantees. That responsibility rests with you but I think even a jackass can make some money just following his advice! It may not be the 30x or 10x but maybe 2x, which is nothing to sneeze at. Is there risk here, probably some but the rewards can be very significant! Don't put all your money into one investment, but do put some in the high returns slot, which could make you a millionaire or better!

Moors offers a service similar to Motley Fool. You subscribe to a newsletter they advertise as giving you hot tips on buying stocks in companies about to blast off, based on their keen insights into industry trends.

Ever since magazines like Money and Forbes did stories on how people who invested a few grand into Microsoft in the early '80s are now millionaires, a slew of market "gurus" have cropped up, promising surefire investment strategies that will make you rich. Yes, investing smartly in the right startup at the right time can make you hefty long-term returns. But ultimately it is a speculative roll of the dice.

My takeaway from Moors' latest ad is solar is the next huge wave of the future. That's an indisputable fact. The question is how much we need Moors' advice to invest in the right companies. Moors' claim that you must buy his materials to have any chance at success is self-serving. You should research what other credible experts say about solar investments and then decide.

Let's look at this logically. If he really knew of an industry or stock that was going to "change the world" what is the need to advertise this. Is he really that altruistic or is he only making money selling subscriptions. If this was all legit he would not be telling everyone just buying in himself and if he truly wanted to help other why have them pay for a subscription.

Let me respond very quickly in regards to Ken Moors, in my opinion ken moors or anyone that set a video for presentation are paid enough to sell you some company product that does not exist they are working very hard to help a felling co. Also by selling the book there's a major profit, therefore all this talk it's all smoke and zero roast so if you feel that you want to take a chance to invest go head everyone is free to do what they like each one of us as on opinion , I have my own opinion all this talk is just to make money from their middle class , if he mentioned all this major company that already are throwing billion dollars in this small co. Why he is trying to convince small fish like us? For few dollars when he as big shark with real money? Now you make your own choice.

Okay. So, there is another meaning and pronunciation for si. But the reference that he was using in the rambling presentation that I listened to was clearly Si, silicon, atomic #14, it is found in high concentration in sand and is the raw material for making Silicon Wafers, which are used in the production of solar cells. The si that you refer to is pronounced Sigh and is something else. This makes Dr Kent look even less credible.

I came to this website because I am sitting here at the beginning of the new year, listening )for some reason) to Dr. Moor talk on and on and on and on about some unnamed "limitless, free source of energy." He is, apparently, hawking the stock of a single company. I don't need to know about Dr. Moor. He is just making a "buy" recommendation on a stock. But for some reason he does not want to name the stock. He has to grease me up for--oh, it's been about 15 minutes so far, and I am amusing myself here on this website while I wait for him to stop baby-dicking around and finally stick it in. But never fear, I will not buy this stock. This "I will tell you the name of the stock in just a moment" pitch is well-known, the pitch of a huckster. In the world of stock recommendations, it is the signature of the Motley Fool. And the Motley Fool's buy recommendations are a sell signal.

In the audio that is STILL going on behind me, he seems to be talking about solar power, captured by silicon photoelectric cells. But that doesn't matter--he isn't talking about the economics of solar power, he is just saying that it is "free". For some reason he won't talk about what the "new" technology is, or which company he is talking about, but he IS:
-- digging at "liberal" who "tax us into oblivion"
-- talking about his own credentials (who cares? ok, he is smart and successful, I'll buy that--so why doesn't he just state his case?)
-- talking up some OTHER expert's credentials that he is referencing, as touting this stock (what stock??)

So, we are about 20 minutes into this audio, and I have learned nothing about what technology or what stock he is talking about, or what his "buy" recommendation is based on, except some unnamed technological innovations. But I HAVE learned:
-- Dr. Moor is an asshole confidence artist
-- Dr. Moor is not a stock analyst making a buy recommendation, he is a salesman selling the shares
-- Dr. Moor's target audience is that very very small slice of people who are willing to listen to this guy brag about himself and say vague, ambiguous things about solar power for an indefinite amount of time, finally hear a stock recommendation, and then pout their money into that toilet and flush.

All better now? Are liberals still a-holes? Fine. Put your money into whatever toilet Dr. Moor is pushing. I have been listening now for a half hour, and I still have no idea what stock he is pumping.

I am sitting here, still wondering what the HELL stock Dr. Moor is telling me to buy. Oh my GOD!! He just said he had a career in COUNTER-INTELLIGENCE! Now he is running through a list of statistics that are meaningless! Then he REPEATED IT! What an asshole. I am sitting here laughing my ass off (typing my ass off!)

Here it comes! Here it comes! He's gonna say the name! I can't wait! I bet it's gonna be a dog! It is classic PUMP & DUMP! I am willing to defame this bastard by predicting that, it is quite possible, that the company he is recommending has a stock that is going to go up, then down precipitously, and finally limp along into oblivion. Am I defaming him? If so, please prosecute me in a civil case.

Oh shit! Now he is not talking about the company! He has not said the name! He is talking about something called Psy Seeds suspending in gas! He is describing vapor deposition, I think! I think he just said that traditional solar power is $76 per kilowatt hour! When was that? 1952??

Oh shit. He still isn't saying the name of the company! Stop greasing me up, Dr. Moor! Ram home that big fat dick! I am ready to buy! Lemme clue you in: when the stock analyst from Goldman Sachs goes to visit the fund managers at Fidelity or T. Rowe Price, he doesn't spend an hour getting to the point. But is Dr. Moor a stock analyst? What is his stake? Who the HELL is he talking about??? Why is he doing this? What is his interest? Is he getting paid? Does he get a commish? Does he own stock in this company? Who knows? We don't even know what the company is!!! How long is he going to talk? This is an endurance contest! I am sitting here, and it has been 45 minutes already! Who the heck is going to sit and listen to this??? I am going to sit here and give it an hour, just for the heck of it! But....

...ok...I am going to play solitaire on my laptop for a while, to give Dr. Douche Bag a chance to actually say the name of the stock he is talking about. BTW, there is NO WAY I am going to buy whatever stock...

...HOLY SHIT! He isn't even going to name the company! I think I have to sign up for a newsletter to get the name of the company! I may do that, with my email address I created just to share with clueless assholes like Dr. Moor.

Oh fuck. I don't think he is even going to tell me how to sign up for the internet newsletter.

I paid a few bucks to see Dr. Moors publication. Before investing, I thought I would check the record of success or lack thereof, by randomly selecting 25 investment recommendations by this guru over the past five years. The result: Of the 25, 3 were profitable! The average loss was 21%, not adjusted for time. The track record from 6/15 through 12/15 when the current market state of declining energy prices was obvious to everyone, was even worse, with all six investments sampled showing losses, cumulatively (unweighted) a loss of 28%. So this guy doesn't know what he's talking about.

Ok, listened to his blah, blah, blah. If he called for 200 a barrel in the past, now he is saying that oil will drop to 10 bucks a barrel. What is it (in case you get caught by the stupid video) is using finely ground sand, sand that becomes nano particles. Then somehow the sand is used to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen.

What he doesn't say is this: The grounding process is extremely expensive. But I will tell you more about this product in a minute...(hahaha). Albert EinsAlberttein is pulled into the discussion, with the photo electric principle (it's what Albert got the Nobel for, not E=MC^2). Poor . And unless the video turns into solar energy, then Kent is full of it.

As you will see in a moment...to quote Kent Moore. "But let me share some of these startlingly innovations in just a moment, but first I have to pull in Thomas Edison!", jeez.

Ok the numbers are 36,000 years, then it's 100,000 years and then it's infinite. Oh now it's Bell Labs in 1954 and electron flow, oh my gosh it's electrical engineering 101. But it isn't solar energy, but it is. WOW, harvesting energy from our nearest STAR, oh my gosh. Solar is cheaper than any other energy source, really?

Now it's the Holy Grail... can't stand it any longer. This is BS

Evidently, Moors is heavily advertising his $97 subscription to his energy info and investment in an effort to raise some cache of monies, say $100M, which he can then invest in some of the companies for which he's creating hype, earn some multiple on that investment, and sell in increments as they climb. Whether they prove to be good long-term trades or not, in the short term he will have made a good return.

I listened to the whole presentation which was repetitive. Allegedly he reveals the company name in the newsletters and reports you get once you pay a $79 membership fee. Has anyone done this and has had a successful investment especially since the US markets are tumbling due to the Asian markets? Is this actually legit or is he making money off membership fees and is a scammer? Please advise without political rhetoric. Thank you. Freddi.

I spent almost an hour listening to Dr Moors presentation. Found it interesting and came away with curiosity about solar contribution to future demand for energy. Did I subscribe, not yet, I am conservative, vote against inexperienced political folks that are pushed by the herd, like what happened to Obama....what a fraud. Seven years later, what has happened under his leadership.....more of the same and little leadership on the big things like energy, except the current meeting in France which really did little to alter the North American path to energy independence and new technology. I remember Solyndra (sp?) and the wasted half a billion dollars squandered while small business who were employing folks in manufacturing were begging for help, financially to keep going, what a waist of our tax dollars. As far as solar....anyone that does not do more research before investing is foolish. The good Doctor introduce me and I listened to the hope of our future. Solar is one of a few cleaner solutions. the discussion caused me to be curious to lean more about this direction, study it and learn. I believe there will be companies that make huge gains and return great rewards for their investors. Along will be companies that try and do not succeed, for various reasons Remember, It still takes energy to make energy. I would be willing to bet there were plenty of investment opportunities that went nowhere in the late 1800 early 1900 over oil refinery and distribution, electric power direction, AC versus DC, etc, but the above comments seem to have little hope and very little thought. Google his name and look up So Cal Edison, PG & E other utilities and see where they are headed. I have often thought over these past 7 years that we could have used the time in a Manhattan like focus and the executive branch could have lead the charge to solve and get people (the herd) more directed on wise use of our limited resources. Here is one presentation about the future. Listen, learn and do more homework. For $40 a year, I get one man, a very smart, but also one who has a bias, am I smart enough to sort out opinion from fact.....hope so, but guess what, I have one more input to read and learn....I get a chance to get information to form my thought and direct my investments. Same as listening to the "news" I listen to both sides and as a conservative, I try to figure out the truth. Just a few words of my stile of learning and moving forward

He is a good sales man . Talks too much . I believe in solar energy and it will take over in the future ,but what this guy is trying to sell is "Bull-Crap" why he wants to sell his products for $ 39.99 when he was paid millions for consultations ?
Take it from me , sales people who talk too much to convenes you, 99.9% of their presentation is Bull-shit .
Selling is giving the buyer the right information so "the buyer " can make the right decision . This guy did not do that, and I don't give a damn for his credentials too.

I'm about 3 standard deviations to the left of "liberal" and I'm also a big fan of Dr. Moors.
The way you have described "liberals" is exactly how I view MANY conservatives-perfectly.
Lets face it, both the extreme lefties and extreme righties are almost perfectly equal in their narrow, scared, habit-ingrained and bigoted attitudes towards those who disagree with them. Extree-mees on both sides do terrible damage to nature, economies, ethnic diversity, new ventures in science and technology etc...etc... because they are SO sure that they are RIGHT in what they "know."
In a world that is extraordinarily complex and becoming more so daily, does it not pay well to be open to everyones ideas and experiences? Even I listen to conservatives occasionally, but NOT when they are confused.
The list of "liberal" character flaws you described here are really standard human fallacies that straddle both aisles, and its a mistake to characterize them as exclusively "liberal" political leanings. If you want to be listened to, and your views validated, try a less general approach to the specifics you mentioned.

This conversation is pointless. The company he's talking about ( Nanosolar Inc.) sold off all it's asset in 2003. It's a dead company. The German arm of Nanosolar was bought by Smartenergy Renewables, a subsidiary of which, Smartenergy Invest, had previously worked with Nanosolar. They are transforming the company from a contract module manufacturer to a service and solution provider around PV and other renewable power plants.

So they're not in the business of making squat.

In my eyes this is a scam.

Alternative energy is growing faster than any other industry but you need a mix. Each property has a different set of resources and needs so just solar isn't going to do it.

Cheers!

For everyone: Just an FYI, if you are going to use an analogy, such as totem poles in most Native American Indian culture, for instance, you should understand that the CHIEF is at the bottom, NOT a simple warrior or squaw.

Yeah, that's my opinion also. I listened to his presentation on the net and logged off after about 10 minutes. He sounded too much like a shyster. When he talked about Si, he called it Si like in Pie. If he really was as he mentions his credentials, he would have said Silicon. Something told me just then that he is not the expert he claims to be.

I agree with you ... yes who is this guy .. I just listened to his hour long advertisement and skipped to the end just to find out how much he wanted me to pay him for this information. it is $97 for $645 worth of energy information (who puts values on this? he says you can turn a $1000 investment into a million ... so his info is worth more than $645 LOL). So I had to wonder what this is all about ... I am so tired of listening to some annoying voice go on for 30 minutes to an hour repeating the same information ... Those guys at Motley Fool do the same thing. Get to the point!!! So, while I don't know him I do form an opinion ... somebody that is looking for a way to make a lot of money ... if it is such a big money maker for everyone .. just tell us, he is gonna make a lot of money off it isn't he? I figure he wont ... he will make a lot of money by selling his stock tip.

I came here after watching about 20 minutes of the Kent Moors Solar Pitch... I found the entire presentation intellectually insulting and incredibly condescending. For instance, and one point, while obviously referring the element Silicon, he repeatedly calls it "Si" (pronounced "Sigh"). Throughout the video, he pitches solar power as an obscure and veiled technology, using vague scientific sounding jargon in an attempt to make laypeople feel like energy insiders.

It's irresponsible, insulting, and frankly beneath someone of Dr. Moors' supposed credentials.

Vary good Lisa ... Now how about this ...
THIS SHOULD BE ENLIGHTENING!!
Here's some thought for extreme, "liberals" and "conservatives" .... Instead of pitching your personal views an opinions, that supports you singular, beliefs,... how about answering some questions of "why" and "how" you believe the way you do (in 25 words or less) ... instead of the lectures. Obviously you came to a conclusion, either by, reading, seeing, hearing or being told about what you believe to be true. It will help the casual reader, on this sight, to absorb some unknown knowledge so, as to come to a broader understanding on how to co-existe in our constantly disrupting world that WE ALL LIVE IN ... Exchanging ideas, concepts, and betterment, should make it a more progressive planet. Let's start by answering 5 simple questions. Remember, collect your thoughts, condense each answer, in 25 words or less ... if you know what you are talking about, it will be easy. All responses are welcome. Please, no "MUD SLINGING" ... respect the opposition.
1. Why and how do you believe in your statement?
2. Define, in a non-political way, what a liberal or conservative is or believes in?
3. Do you believe in a supreme entity?
4. If you had the power and/or ability to improve or modify the world's shortcomings, name 3 efforts (in 7 words) what would you attempt?
5. Do you have friends with a variety of beliefs and personalities?
Thanks for your responses.

Listening to Moors's spiel, he talked at least 15 minutes about some new and wonderful energy source, never actually naming it. (During the spiel he so confuses units and dimensions that I have to doubt his scientific qualifications.) He finally comes out and identifies this "wonder" as solar photovoltaic power. Having been in photovoltaic R&D for 30 years, it was sort of pleasant to hear the technology so praised, but then I felt that the last thing our industry needs is a huckster.

Apparently Moors is hawking a company with a "breakthrough" solar product. It's curious that we in the industry haven't heard of it. I tend to be cautious, having seen many such innovations fall flat. Often they are promising in the lab, but fail to come through as practical commercial products.

Given the guy's mode of presentation-- an endless repetitive pitch before getting to the point, I wouldn't invest a nickel with this him.

oceantrader1964 - Why are you hiding your name if you are so happy with this Dr. Moors?
I have no idea who he is but I would be inclined to disbelieve him because of the long advertisement for our money. He goes on and on and on about how much money he can make for me when he could say exactly the same thing in one paragraph. Why would a very rich person try to get my $39 dollars (or whatever amount) just to help me out? He doesn't know me all he wants is my money. No, I have to believe it is a scheme.

I thought the question was about kent, not liberals- is he legit? He is a great salesman, he is articulate with good stage presence which means TV wants him. He is politically conservative so his platform of choice is conservative FOX. He is selling Perovskites solar cells which are legitimate though no secret that he make you sit through his 30 minute sales pitch with the occasional rant against 'liberals' ( which explains the 'your a stupid liberal if you question someone on Fox mentality). It doesnt mean he is not legit, he is a great salesman selling an investment letter that probably has as much success as any other similarly priced investment letter.

Of course W won in 2000 (blame Gore's loss on FL voters who punched the ballot for Ralph Nader; if you watched any of the recounts in Broward County or Miami-Dade, the panels doing the review and decision making were controlled by Democrats) and no question he won in 2004 (Kerry wants to claim he lost Ohio due to a Republican Sec of State--poor loser, just like Cam Newton). Why the heck did you even make your comment?
