  • Which Big Oil Dividends Are Safe? [View article]
    my thought is: BP dividend is the safest of the bunch...with COP a close second...50% greater dividend return for BP risk...is it real?

  • 3 Reasons To Buy Royal Dutch Shell, Despite Lower Oil Prices [View article]
    agree very much...take 25% off TOT dividend rate and TOT has a ways to go to match Shell...however, Wiesje may be correct about Alaska...was that 5 BILLION?

    the government records of drilling permits/operation inspections do not materially support your allegation; almost ALL of design, protocol, and means & methods of rig design and operation are the similar around the world [BP, EXON, Shell, etc.]; however, when you enter the legal world, facts and reality are twisted --its how law works, mostly: the truth becomes lies; the lies become truth; with rare exception, science/engineering endeavors, be individual or company [i.e. BP], present poorly in litigation theater; so what you read in legal documents and what the judge says and concludes often is not factual flawed [fails scientific vigor/peer review]...this is especially true when dealing on leading edge known engineering/science technique, like mile deep drilling...you want good law outcome? then REQUIRE that the judge be an experienced qualified scientist/engineer having worked many hands-on in the field on rigs, etc. doing the science; what then would the findings be?

  • AT&T: Dividend Increase Coming, Here's What To Expect [View article]
    if you can borrow funds at very low interest to expand this capital intensive business cheaper than selling stock [for funds] with more costly dividend requirements...existing stockholders should be happy with management and a 5+% dividend...
    as for Sprint, more likely than not, they will be hurting sooner than VZ and T -- Sprint trickery will not sell well for multiple reasons...if it back-fires they will be the 'fire sale' not T or VZ
    you don't make-up-for losses by selling volume below cost...
    during the second great depression a few years ago even street people had cell phones -- T and VZ has the advantage!
    buy buy buy

    there is no true free money...government must first take from someone to give to another one; stealing [extreme greed] from BP is foolish because it takes from the public
    BP trades oil for dollars...
    WE the people provide dollars for BP oil
    BP passes through dollars to government
    ...be careful what you wish for government
    eat the goose and you will have no more golden eggs!

  • Ouch! BP Should Have Been More Careful What It Wished For [View article]
    Watermellon56,
    purpose one change: in 'US legal system' -- replace 'justice' with 'legal' -- mostly a just outcome is seldom 'applicable'...and too costly, exceeding economic benefit [as argued by the Specialist!]; history shows time and time again as a legal system ages along with its nation [i.e. example USA]...complexity increases, justice diminishes, freedoms are taken away, nanny state rules [i.e. your children go to war, die at 18 but most places not legal to drink or smoke until 21! go figure]...eventually both nation and legal system collapse from within...'the marching morons' [read it]
    on the good side: the Specialist offers us an important service: by presenting other viewpoints with reasoning; this should encourage one to do their own research and come to their own conclusions [that's why you have a brain]; you may well reason better... buy, hold, or sell PB stock.

  • Tesla And The Fuel Cell Mirage [View article]
    the brake away of tires with pavement is dependent upon friction
    electric motor or gas motor matter not
    so all the language of exceptional acceleration from stop is erred
    the laws of nature have not been changed
    wonderful car, state of the art, yes yes and yes
    but that it can deny the laws of nature just by a few folks with talk
    REALLY?

    sorry NOT free!!!!
    1. someone paid for the cost of the energy you used
    2. efficiency losses from energy source to energy used at the wheel of an electric car is greater than an modern lightweight ICE
    3. purchase cost of your Tesla is 2 to 3 times cost of a ICE in item 2 --account for cost and source of funds used to own the Tesla4. energy used to build the Tesla is greater, say 2 times, of cost of an ICE in item 2 above -- account for this cost bottomline: there is no free lunch...energy is not free, even if you think it isall the very best holidays and safe travels

    logic full of errors, but emotional reasoning acceptable
    the laws of nature often fail to meet the wishes of man
    then again man often ignores the laws of nature and pays the price
    happy holidays
