  • ConocoPhillips Q4 Results: Is The Dividend Still Safe? [View article]
    i bought oil stocks around thanksgiving. but if oil stays down that long, i will make up the difference selling calls and puts. for investors who need dividends for income to live on, energy stocks seem like the best place to be, it seems to me.

  • Chevron beats by $0.21, beats on revenue [View news story]
    i am new to the energy companies. i was in utilities for years. i ignorantly thought cop had refiners and gas stations. there is a conoco right down the street from me. then i found out all of that was sold in 2012. so i sold 2/3 of my cop yesterday and bought rds.b i was pretty happy reading your post. it kind of gave some optimism to me that my thinking was correct. thanks for posting.

  • Chevron/Exxon Earnings Preview: 2015 Revisions Are Shocking [View article]
    this is just me, but i wouldn't use december lows as a stop loss. that low could also be support. the stock could bounce off of it. if you want to sell the stock, sell some covered calls, and if they get assigned, so be it. if they don't, keep selling them. then once the stock sells, maybe sell puts. thats what i do. regardless, if i were going to put a stop order in, it would be before it got to the dec. lows. but thats just me. if we could see the future, we would mak alot of money.:).
    by the way, i did get alot from your article. thanks.

    matthew, depreciation is income cash flow, because it reduces your tax liability. if you buy 1 billion worth of equipment and depreciate it all in 1 year, that is approx 330 million you do not have to pay in taxes for that year.

    i've been considering buying some paa. since it sounds like many of you like the stock, could you tell me how much trouble the mlp is regarding taxes? do you have to pay income tax in each state that they do business in? and is that a significant amount? it just sounds so complicated.

  • Update: BP Catches Another Legal Break That May Be Bigger Than You Think [View article]
    i have a funny feeling that 2.50 a share pop had alot of short covering it. plus all energy companies went up friday, though not as much on a percentage basis as bp. next week will be interesting from a trading perspective.

  • 3 Reasons To Buy Royal Dutch Shell, Despite Lower Oil Prices [View article]
    if you have your tot in a non retirement account, i think you can get what france with holds from your dividend through the forign tax credit when you file your tax returns. i don't know how difficult that is, and haven't bought tot because of that. but i plan to discuss it with my accountant when i go to do my taxes.

  • BP A Buy After The Rout In Oil Prices [View article]
    the difference in the ruling for how many barrels bp spilled is enough to pay the dividend for a year.

    jerry, the author of this article said bp dividend in the 3rd quarter was 25% of free cash flow. are you saying that isn't true?
