  • Altria Group Inc: Prepare For The Fall [View article]
    you speak too strongly
    bonds react quickly to interest changes, yes
    stocks in general less, but over time do also, and dividend based stocks are replacements for bonds for many investors...MO, PM, T, VZ, JNJ, similar...fall into that class
    if you want to relate stocks to interest more closely invest in preferred stock...in this case you can currently collect 7+% dividends with little CG...hence these act more quickly to interest rate movements and are a compromise between the received safety of bonds and 'high risk' of stocks...
    as to the charts presented in the article: correlation is not proof of causation and that is what the article proposes which may have caused you to write so strongly...

    all the very best holidays

    it is extremely difficult to evaluate leadership from a distance...you must be an insider at a level to understand the choices and problems for each operation/company...be... these companies are different hence different set of decisions and regulatory issues pushing the companies and management...it might be that the Dudley 'team' decisions will be quite elegant when viewed in the future
    all the very best investing

    WLD,
    your 38 may well be too low; same goes for T at 32; but never say never; if you wish to own BP nibble in at 40 then 39...BP is stronger than many believe; demand is very high to 5% dividend stocks for good reason

  • Pfizer Yielding 8.7%? It Could Happen More Easily Than You Think [View article]
    auto reinvestment of dividends generally has not commission fee at most broker firms...hence no effect...if you reinvest in a single stock in amounts of 100 plus per purchase from multiple dividend sources...the commission should be of little effect: most brokers charge under $10/trade...or 10 cent for 100 shares...hope this helps...all the very best

  • BP's Claims Last Week Go From Snail's Pace To Warp Speed [View article]
    Cautiously,
    not for me to argue the settlement details, did not read the related or actual documents...two wrongs do not make for a 'right'...even in the law, or at least that's what I've been told...nor can I argue that settlement favors BP...economically the area had a better economic outcome according to the published data I read and hence it seems both the economic and environmental harm claimed by the haters seems to have little basis in factual evidence...regardless those that hate will continue to do so, just humans being humans...my tilt is BP. From my research BP today is the most engineering/science advanced and most safe oil company on the planet and will continue to be for a decade or so...after that who knows it is a dynamic world...stay safe and enjoy the upcoming holidays.

    thank you, certainly stated with thought, balance with foundation; the specialist makes no bones about it -- one sided, forcefully unreasonable and demonstrating how our legal systems fail, more often than not, to product a justice system outcome...judges were/are lawyers [exceptions possible, know any?]...so one can hardly expect viewpoints and decisions to be better than the source;...having read many court and appeal decisions demonstrating how judges decide the outcome THEY wish by saying their arguments prevail with facts that say otherwise [peer reviewed evidence that disagrees] but denied and/or set aside by the judge(s)...a reason why a lawyer says that in court it is most difficult to determine the outcome: HUMAN we all are and how bias and money effects outcome and is often silent, hidden, hence the specialist warns us how bad it can be...but does not say for certain the outcome...perhaps BP will take the legal system to task for decades to come...with outcome similar to Exxon...

    all the best to BP employees past, present and future...we need the energy your dedicated work provides this nation, even the specialist.
