More trash than treasure at storage auctions

By Jonathan Berr

Attention Storage Wars fans: The odds of you striking it rich at a storage auction are as remote as those of mortal enemies Darrell Sheets and Dave Hester dancing the cha-cha cheek-to-cheek, or fashion maven Barry Weiss wearing beige.

Though the hit cable-TV show does give viewers an idea of what goes on at the auctions, it doesn t give the entire picture. Buying and selling merchandise based on a cursory inspection of an abandoned storage locker is not an easy way to make a living.

Indeed, what gets viewers hooked on Storage Wars is that the cast members don t always make a profit.

Shale: igniting a new industrial renaissance

by Paul M. Barrett

In late 1998, Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK), an independent natural-gas producer based in Oklahoma City, exemplified an industry in decline.

The company s stock price had fallen over two years from above $34 a share to 75 cents. Its market value tumbled 93 percent, to $72 million. They re running up a down escalator, Michael Spohn, an analyst at Petroleum Research Group, said.

When Aubrey K. McClendon, Chesapeake s chief executive officer and co-founder, announced he might sell the company, there was little interest, Bloomberg Businessweek reports in its Nov. 7 edition.

Falling gas prices had reduced the value of Chesapeake s reserves from $2.1 billion to $661 million. We d had higher highs than others in the industry; then we had...

by Ben Nuckols

Recent college graduate Molly Katchpole has $2,200 to her name, holds down two part-time jobs one of them as a nanny and describes her financial situation as paycheck-to-paycheck.
