  • Hess says every $1 decline in crude price cuts income by $8M [View news story]
    so, here's a clear example of how the public pays their own $$ into oil companies which in turn benefit enormously. Should this be somewhat tempered? Come on, people, think beyond your noses. If you can.

  • Why I Slept Like A Baby Last Night Earning An 8.8% Yield [View article]
    Good for you! Please beware: history repeats itself... until it doesn't. I'd go deeper in your analyses. We're headed for a major disruption in the 'growth above all' mentality...

  • Banco Santander's Dividend Can't Last [View article]
    SAN investment simply requires that:
    1) you believe in the bank's mangement;
    2) you believe that the bank can, and will, move beyond the script stuff, to become a viable shareholder-supporting establishment as the script agreement stands for now (needs adjustment as things change)
    3) you have a long-term horizon (don't need the money within maybe 3 years or so)
    4) believe that long-term the bank deliver non-dilutive earnings (see #2), or stock appreciation
