The Truth be told...

|Includes: ConocoPhillips (COP)

Thank you for such an immediate response to the COP break-up!

Now, the proverbial question is: which is the 'red-headed step child'? Refining, I assume???

One additional question; a lot people seem to think the spin-off will unlock value, fair enough. Well, that certainly would be so if the shareholders are provided some form of diluted distribution - (such as the Baby Bell distribution of the 1980's which I've seen referred to by others as an example in this case) - any word on this?
