Even though I am not from Texas, I love their state's economic system, as a former accountant student. TPL is down alot, but has zero debt, pay's an increasing dividend, and most importantly, buy's back it's own share's every year. TPL is the largest land owner, acre wise, in the state of Texas. Oil, natural gas, and ranching. I post here because my largest stock holding is SLW, and TPL trade's just a few share's a day. Am 30 % in cash like mentioned before. I know what stock's I like. Mr Bernanke is the most important financial person in the world. The United States has by far the strongest military in the world. Tomorrow may be a key trading day.
