Dear management........you haven't done #$%$ for stockholders in terms of your 'compelling dividend' policy except talk about it. So, when you are actually going to raise the dividend, shareholders would like to hear about it. In the meantime.....your stock is under performing and investors are loosing interest.
I don't think that history would back up this statement, I have been in COP for a little over 3 yrs and it has repeatedly raised its dividend and spun off PSX to give me an average compounded return of 24%. You must be a very short term trader, this is a steady and reliable growth company with a low beta. You need to trade elsewhere if you are disappointed with how well this is doing. an excellent company and management
