  • Schlumberger Is Worth $50 To $70 [View article]
    Shock Exchange: I hope your projections are correct. I bought SLB at $58+ and sold recently at $84+. I'd love to get back in at $70 or less.

  • Holy Smoke - My Favorite Idea That Everyone Knows But Doesn't Understand [View article]
    Rochelle : Your in depth article on MO is the best analysis of the future outlook for it that I've ever seen. It gives a long time holder of MO, like me, projections that I haven't seen before and makes me think about selling sometime before 2018. As with every article that is negative about MO, I imagine you'll get plenty of flack from the MO longs. But, what you say makes sense to me. And, unless the BOD at MO take some of your suggestions to heart or, have something up their sleeve to counter the inevitable, the outlook you project seems justified. Thanks for a well researched article.

  • Russia sets terms for Schlumberger’s bid to buy Eurasia Drilling [View news story]
    SLB dealing with Russia is like GE dealing with France. The smell is enough to gag a maggot. But, their BOD's must know what they're doing or, at least think they do. Only time will tell.

  • EIA: Oil production falling at Eagle Ford, Bakken, Niobrara shale plays [View news story]
    Topcat: Gasoline is running around $ 1.75/gal. at market prices. Total taxes are about $.65/gal. Add them together and you get an average price of $ 2.40/gal. The $.65 varies by state and local, therefore the price at the pump also varies by state and local. I hope this helps explain why gas at the pump can vary from approximately $ 2.00 to $ 2.40 /gal., or more in places like CA.

  • U.S. Tobacco Industry Suffers Slow Death: Altria Trading At Premium Despite Major Headwinds [View article]
    I think that as soon as enough states legalize MJ to where it becomes profitable to distribute it, the tobacco companies will jump in and offset the diminishing tobacco loses. I think they have been preparing for it for a long time.

    EDGI: I'm terrible at math. At least I got the numbers right. And, I agree with you that it's still nothing worth talking about.

  • ConocoPhillips: Dividend Is A Priority [View article]
    I have a paper loss on COP from it's high, but fortunately bought in at $58.41, so haven't really lost anything yet. And I don't expect COP to drop below 60.

  • Premarket Gainers / Losers as of 9:10 am [View news story]
    If it wasn't for the generous dividends, I would have lost 50% of my investment dollars on CIG. But, since it can't go much lower without total failure, time will restore my original investment through those dividends.

  • Altria misses by $0.01 [View news story]
    Doesn't that figure out to about a .15% drop in earnings ? Well within the parameters of estimating error.

  • General Electric Needs To Earn Back Its Credibility [View article]
    A group of speedboats can maneuver and change in direction much better than a Titanic-like battle ship that is presently known as GE.
