  • Kinder Morgan: The Sharks Have Begun To Circle [View article]
    the defense budget is not a subsidy to oil. its a subsidy to the safety and way of life in America and the world.

    but the whole point was solar couldn't survive without subsidies. then a comment said oil got subsidies too. so as an investment, take away all subsidies and forgive all taxes on solar and oil. then see what is left standing.

  • More on Shell / BG Group: Shell offering a 52% premium [View news story]
    if you are a bg shareholder, you are going to get .44 of a shell b share, for every bg share you own. plus some cash. if you are a shell b share owner, you get to have the shares you currently own become a smaller peace of the pie.

  • Exxon could be next in line for oil mega-deal, Morgan Stanley says [View news story]
    shell is issuing new stock and giving that to BG shareholders in lieu of all cash. shell is issuing an amount of new stock equal to 8% of the outstanding shares. the day after shell made the announcement they were going to purchase BG, and dilute the stock (opposite of buying back shares), the stock price went from 66.00 a share to 60.00 a share. meanwhile BG stock rose 26% in the pre market.
    so i am saying if xom announces an acquisition of a meaningful company, they may issue more stock to pay for the purchase, thus diluting xom shares. the stock price will nose dive. so if you think xom is about to purchase something for example like BP, be prepared to lose 10% of the value of your stock in one day.
    its just a warning, at least don't buy anymore xom until after an acquisition is made.

  • Exxon could be next in line for oil mega-deal, Morgan Stanley says [View news story]
    as an investor of rds, b shares, xom shareholders better sell now. shell is paying most of their acuisition costs by issuing about 8% more new stock. you will lose 10% of your xom value as soon as an announcement is made. 1

  • Royal Dutch Shell And BG Deal In Focus [View article]
    i seem to be the only one aggrivated that they are diluting b shares by 8% to pay for much of the purchase. but not A shares. how is that fair to people who paid 66.00 dollars a share for rds.b the day before the deal was announced. its just not ok to say people will make it up 2 or 3 years from now. a share holders should shoulder the burden too.

  • Why I Prefer Kinder Morgan Over Enterprise Products Partners [View article]
    i like kmi because its not an mlp. i don't want to deal with the tax differentials. just give me a c corp and be done with it.
    that aside, i have always been partial to paa. what do y'all think about them?

  • Royal Dutch Shell - I Have Serious Doubts About The British Gas Deal [View article]
    what ticks me off, is i have been a shareholder rds.b for all of 3 months. now i wake up in the morning to find out the deal is being financed with b shares only. i have read shell is diluting the b shares by 8%. i went into shell because i was worried bp was going to get stabbed in the back. i never thought my own company would stab me like shell did.
    that said, if this is what happens to share prices after the predicted mega mergers come to fruition, shell is the safest place to be. i guess if xom buys something their share price will fall to 76.00

  • Why You Should Go Long Royal Dutch Shell [View article]
    current b share holders are already paying the price. bg is going to be paid in b shares, which is going to dilute the b shares by about 8% from what i have read.

  • Leap Secured Options Writing - The Ultimate Safe Investment Strategy [View article]
    so you are saying this strategy is primarily used with spy, because the option spreads work in your favor better because of the consistency of premiums on the call vs put sides?
    i trade weekly options every week. but i have never even looked at spy options.
