  • Potash -4% on Saskatchewan tax changes, soft China-Belarus deal [View news story]
    I agree Steven. I bought into Potash last time when price dipped below $32. It was good decision to sit back, wait and collect divided. As world's farmland needs to be more productive to feed growing population, demand for fertilizer will increase.

  • Duke Energy reaches proposed $102M settlement to end coal ash probe [View news story]
    Roady, you are absolutely correct. DUK expected this settlement and already set aside a $100 million or $0.14 per share last quarter. EPS came in little lower due to those 14 cents DUK set aside.

  • Symantec breaking up into two companies [View news story]
    "Confirming a recent Bloomberg report, Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) announces it's splitting in two. One company, which will remain known as Symantec, will offer storage software/services, and the other will offer storage management software/services."

    Both companies going to offer storage related needs? Doesn't make sense, I think one of them might offer security software/services.

  • Pfizer chief says shareholders supportive of decision to walk away from AstraZeneca [View news story]
    This is good for shareholders in short term but bad in longer term. PFE needs to acquire other companies to improve its product pipeline for future revenues. AZN has a good pipeline which would have benefitted all shareholders. I am sure PFE can find other candidates for takeover/merger.

  • BP reiterates long-term Russian strategy after sanctions news [View news story]
    Events like these are good opportunity to add BP as the stock will make a comeback when sanctions are loosened. I would I add some more, but my BP position is very large now. I have loaded up BP when it was in low 40s.

  • Johnson & Johnson: A Classic Buy The Dip Opportunity Right Now [View article]
    RS, I agree that this 2% dip is nice time add some more JNJ, but not a back up the truck pricing. Companies like JNJ, don't go on sale too many times, so you have to advantage of the dips in prices. I will add little bit more to my JNJ position on this dip (and hope it falls more so i can pick up more shares cheaper.)

  • Whiting to acquire Kodiak [View news story]
    Something is fishy about this deal, why would any company accept a takeover deal for only 5% premium? maybe there is some issue about KOG that managment doesn't want to leak out to general population yet. With this merger, it becomes WLL's problem now (if theres one).
