  • Some oil companies may be just weeks away from bankruptcy, analyst says [View news story]
    Passive aggressive approach to analysis ... "Some" oil companies "may" be weeks from bankruptcy. C'mon. That can be said at all times about any given sector. Weak.

  • Exxon Mobil: Clear Value For Long-Term Investors [View article]
    This is a great article. Well done! Buying XOM and other energy companies with every chance I get. Mainly buying energy now as I find very few deals in the market right now. I'll worry about balancing and diversification later when prices cool in other sectors. No point in forcing the issue.

  • Exxon Mobil beats by $0.22, misses on revenue [View news story]
    Dale,
    Yep, XOM looks great to me! I suppose it does depend on timeline for investors as nobody knows how long oil prices will be suppressed. I am 35 and looking at a 30+ years hold, with acquisition of new shares when presented with what I consider to be bargains. I am a DGI ... so, I'm liking all of the fear!

  • ConocoPhillips Q4 Review: Dividend Safe, Production Growth Continues, $500 Million In Additional Cost Savings [View article]
    @ giofls
    Even as a DGI, I would not be opposed to a temporary cut in divi to use as much cash as possible to go bargain hunting. COP would be stronger than ever when oil prices climb again.

  • The Crash In Oil Prices Offers The Opportunity Of A Lifetime - I Beg To Differ [View article]
    Always appreciate your rational posts BH2012. Being that I struggle with exact timing of the market I have already started the process of buying some quality energy companies. But, not overly worried if I began too early ... Dollar Cost Averaging is a good friend of mine.

  • Retirement Strategy: Selling Exxon Mobil Goes Against The Grain Of A Dividend Growth Investor [View article]
    I hope you're right RS about 6-9 months ... my reasoning is I DONT want it to move up until I'm able to build a position through Computershare. In fact, kinda hope it takes even longer for price to recover:)

  • Verizon: Does Current Price War Mean Long-Term Damage? [View article]
    Agree with being diversified but I don't believe in being diversified for the sake of being diversified. For example, I am going to buy pretty much only oil and telecom in the short term. It will skew my portfolio. But that's ok. Eventually oil and telecom will rise and, say, consumer and tech will drop. Then I will try to hammer on companies in those sectors. As long as I'm focused on long term and don't worry about short term balance issues that seems to me to be a good way to diversify while still trying to buy value. Not many deals out there except for oil and telecom right now. I wish you the best!

  • Why I Purchased Exxon Mobil And Chevron This Week [View article]
    Who do we think will own the "alternative energy" sources? Exxon, Chevron, and the like will. I believe these companies are multibillion $$$ companies because they know all things energy. I don't understand the thought process and the "what ifs" with the concerns of depletion of oil. Exxon will see the changes coming and adapt long before we know about the tech. JMHO. Besides, oil is used in almost everything right now. So, not much will change in the next 20 years IMO.

  • Stocks For The Long-Run: Starbucks [View article]
    I don't understand why some would pay $150/month for cable TV but millions do. Netflix and Hulu are $8 each/month. Good enough for me. So, I guess it's less about price and more about experience and on demand products? I guess chalk it up to everybody really is different.

  • ConocoPhillips: A Strong Buy From A Dividend Investing Perspective [View article]
    I think this article needs to be removed ... because I'm adding COP monthly and I don't want others running the price up;) Seriously though, good article. Thanks for sharing.
