    Beware when everyone agrees...that too on what some monarchy will do...

    They all pledge but somehow never quite seem to get beyond giving away 10-15% in their least they give something...even the robber barons of yore like Carnegie, Rockefeller and Morgan, in the end gave most of it away...

  • Report: Apple to begin using OLED iPhone displays in 2018 [View news story]
    Apple fans till now : OLED is too garish, LCD is waaaay better

    Apple fans now: OLED is the greatest thing since sliced bread

    Timmy will roll out the OLED with some catchy name (RetinaColor, some such name) and sneer at Samsung for copying Apple by having OLED since 2010.

    Followed by a lawsuit claiming Apple invented OLED and no one else should have it.

  • Crude Oil Market Structure Looks Weak, But It Is Only One Part Of A Complicated Puzzle [View article]
    Since oil production will fall about 4 million barrels a year absent new capital spending to replace production, perhaps that may balance the market?

    While there is an incentive to produce the marginal barrel given the sunk cost of the well, what incentive is there to sink money into new wells at prices of $30 and $20 per barrel?

    Lastly given the possiblity, however discounted, of a production cut being announced by OPEC, there would be *quite* a short covering if that happened.

  • U.S. introduces new rules against inversions [View news story]
    So nice, the IRS doesn't need congress or the constitution or judicial review or anything. So nice a bunch of political appointees can make new laws by calling them rules or regulations. After all the IRS is a supremely apolitical model of efficiency.

  • The Oil Producer's Dilemma - Shale Puts A Ceiling On Oil Prices [View article]
    Article would have been more useful if it had numbers for 1) crude production in US, OPEC, and non US non OPEC 2) Projected rise in demand as extrapolated from a trendline 3) Cost to Saudi Arabia of NOT cutting production and allowing low prices to continue and ability of Saudi Arabia to sustain such pricing 4) Estimated production costs and production volumes of major US shale plays 5) Effects of hedges, purchased prior to the oil crash expiring, on fracking companies 6) Possible sales of light US crude due to lifting of export restrictions on US crude

    Article doesn't have numbers at all, just opinion. Most of the production numbers are easily found in the EIA and IEA reports.

    How about mentioning how much revenues and earnings will be lost through the spinoff as well, when mentioned the "20 Billlion share buy back equivalent"? There is no such a thing as a free lunch.

  • Crude Oil: OPEC Ministers Face A Supply Bonanza [View article]
    Selling 31.5 million barrels a day at $40 = $1.26 B

    Cutting production by 3 million barrels and

    Selling 28.5 million barrels a day @ $80 = 2.28 B

    Seems a easy enough math for all producers, Russia, OPEC etc. The wild card is that US oil producers can't legally cartelize and co-ordinate.

    Problem is that whenever oil prices go up, with a few months lag shale production will kick in again. So unless demand exceeds supply, we are going to see a lost decade like the 1980's with $12 oil...
