  • Wake Me Up When The Second Half Of 2015 Begins [View article]
    Aren't the oil companies trading at higher forward p/e ratios due to earnings estimates based on oil staying at the current price?

    If oil does recover, even to at least $75-80, won't that bring the p/e numbers right down?

  • Nasdaq Dividend Achievers: Kimberly-Clark [View article]
    You are saying Kmb is undervalued because it seems undervalued compared to another overvalued security. Logic.

  • Transocean - An Opportunity Through The Oil Crash [View article]
    well with U.S equities at above average valuations. RIG is basically a stock with probably very limited downside risk and a 4% yield while you wait.

  • Nasdaq Dividend Achievers: Kimberly-Clark [View article]
    The company is over valued at the moment. I think you are trying to say it is undervalued because the dividend yield is at the high end of its average.

    Furthermore, you seem to imply that volatility = risk. This is simply not the case, especially in a long term holding.

  • Transocean - An Opportunity Through The Oil Crash [View article]
    I'm down about 20% averaged position. I struggle to see the price going further down but I don't see it going up too anytime soon.

    A couple of years down the road however, I can see transocean being a double or triple from current levels.

    Oil has made this move several times before and it has always gone back up.

  • Dividend Growth: Is It Really The Right Strategy For You? [View article]
    smoking is bad so don't buy MO
    too much sugar causes obesity and diabetes so don't buy KO
    too much fat and salt causes obesity so don't buy MCD
    excess CO2 causes global warming so don't buy GM
    Oil spills are very harmful to the environment so don't buy XOM
    Banks screw the '99%' over so don't buy BAC

    But nobody forces anyone to smoke, drink, or eat unhealthily. People need cars to get to work and need oil to make petrol for their cars, and finally need a bank to hold their money for them...

    to cut a long story short, is 'ethical investing' even viable?

  • Barron's: Whether crude moves up or down, best to avoid big oils [View news story]
    Exxon's profits are not aligned with the price of oil because of their operations.

    They are a huge refiner too. As oil price drops their margins for the refining business increase, which offsets the loss in the production business.
