  • Though Samsung (SSNLF.PK) is the world's biggest memory maker and a top LCD maker, the growing needs of its phone/tablet ops are forcing it to turn to 3rd-party suppliers. Digitimes reports Samsung has stepped up its purchases of mobile DRAM chips from Elpida and NAND flash products from Toshiba, and that the electronics giant is also buying 5.8" LCD panels from Taiwanese suppliers for its phablets.

    As many know Corning HQ in Corning is just north of the NY-PA state line.That county immediately to the south is where fracking is in high gear and many,including present and past Corning folk are in high clover,receiving like $50,000 monthly checks from the exploration companies which have shown great interest in their modest residential property.
    I was recently on a European cruise with a number of them.They were in high spirits and oh yes,proud to be associated with Corning

    As a stock holder for over twenty years I have noted certain trends or buying philosophy
    This latest investment is classic Exxon in that they are buying into an offshore oil field.I think that is a prudent way to access assets in the most defensible locations

  • Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Mexico’s state-controlled oil giant Pemex reach a deal to collaborate in research, science, technology and human resources training for the exploration, drilling, production, transportation and storage; the agreement does not involve paid services. Pemex seeks to modernize, as its crude output has been dropping steadily for years. [View news story]
    If the agreement "doesn't include paid services" then what does it include? What sort of agreement are you describing?
