  • Why Valero Energy Is A Great Buying Opportunity In A Good-Yielding Stock [View article]
    I'm keeping a close eye on the price at this point. The negatives have merit, more likely short term tho.

    However, with a PEG at .55, a P/E under 8, and the EV/EBITDA where it is, this stock bears keeping an eye on.

    My gut tells me that there is a bit more downside to be had, but I'm looking to add for a client in the mid $40s, and possibly start a position for myself if I can find the dry powder.

  • Time To Part Ways With Philip Morris As The Investor Day Presentation Fails To Inspire Confidence [View article]
    No replies to the questions in my post. I say you got impatient and bailed.

    The fact that you waited as long as you did to buy says a lot.

    That is all.

  • Upcoming earnings not likely to provide boost for refiners, Barclays says [View news story]
    Actually, you would be better off just ignoring what Barclays says. They're not interested in helping retail investors.

    AJP: What were the buy and sell prices of your position??? Why didn't you buy several years ago (or longer), like most on this thread??

    It sounds to me that you were late to the party, and decided the party was over. While the challenges have continued, and even increased over the last several years, this co is far from a dead duck. What kind of time frame were you targeting (to hold your shares)?? Can you analyze your behavior here and see any impatience (just asking)???

    One thing you did not mention is how PM has behaved since they recently guided lower. At first, the stock did sell off-yes. But very recently, it has shown strength, even up on the day the Dow was down 109 I believe. That (to me) says there are a lot of deep pockets who feel pretty good about holding the stock here in the mid $80s. I realize the float is very large, so there could be heavier selling on the way and more downward pressure on the stock. In that regard, we shall see. However, I think the recent strength is a sign of full confidence in their mgmt and definitely faith in the dividend and certainly a major faith that that dividend is about (Sept) to be raised yet again.

    I say you should have held longer based on the above and decided later in the year.

    JMTC of course.

    browndlee:

    Agree w/ your post. We may never know if someone was tipped off or not. I think your point about trying to head off declining sales (and compete with MO) is the most powerful (and logical) reason tho.
