  • S&P downgrades Shell, places other European oil majors on ratings watch  [View news story]
    I read the other day where RDS had planned on downgrades because of the recent BG acquisition. So this is not unexpected.

  • AT&T Deal In The Works?  [View article]
    I'd love DSL. All we have is dialup or expensive satellite, and no cable. Wireless coverage is spotty.

  • Royal Dutch Shell: Buy The Drop  [View article]
    I heard a story on the radio today about some city in Asia, I believe, that was trying to curb pollution. So they started an even/odd thing with cars, kind of like we did back in the 70s. Except that instead of filling up, they are parking the cars - half on even days, and half on odd days. It was supposed to take a million cars off the road every day. It seems to me that if there are multiple cities with that many cars world wide, than anything that we do in the US would only be a drop in the bucket and very futile.

    It may be nothing, or it could explode. But the SA/Iran situation is volatile to say the least, and I think it possibly could affect the price of........well, everything.

    You're entitled to buy whatever stock, bond, commodity, etc, that floats your boat. And more power to you.

    There's a couple of stocks I wont touch because shortly being told about dividend increases, they cut the dividend. So I severed my relations with those companies. I won't deal with crooked management.

    That said, fossil fuels will be around for a long time, and if technology lags, we still have most of the world's coal that we can use if they don't tear all the infrastructure down before the next election.

    The middle eastern turmoil may cause a rise in the price of oil. We'll see. I picked up a little speculative RDSB this morning just in case the turmoil increases the price.

    However, good luck to you, and many investors reach what they seek to attain. I think we have some interesting days ahead of us.

  • AT&T confirms it's dropping two-year contracts for consumers  [View news story]
    When we changed from Verizon to AT&T recently, we just bought our phones, because the language about financing them was confusing and I'd rather just get it over with. My wife and I got LG Vistas and the "transfer a line" rebate/discount just about paid for the phones. Plus I got a LG tablet for $0.99 and I just love it. We had the old phones for several years (3G Motorola Android phones). I never have understood these people that wait in line every time there's a new phone coming out, but I guess it's a generational thing. But so far I'm very happy with my phones and my service. I'm really not sure how the sale of phones affects AT&T, but I would think that the business wizards there know what they're doing. As long as the dividend keeps coming in, I'll be content. And that's the zombie troof!

    PS: Our bill is $20 less than what we were paying for Verizon, and that is a bouns!

    KMI is only a small portion of my portfolio, but it's still really irritating.

  • Kinder Morgan board reportedly meets today as stock sinks again  [View news story]
    I expect a lawsuit, maybe class-action over this. I suppose many people bought more after they assured the people there would be dividend increases.
