Sir, I offer an energy company for your inspection. I will advise you I mostly invest very long and only consider consistent dividend paying mid to upper mid capital issues. I also add on a consistent and well disciplined style and reinvest dividends asap.
It is all about the number of shares owned and not the the day to day PPS. That being said I will sell off but almost immediately re buy but now is not the time for doing that....Disciplined accumulation of historically dividend paying "bedrock" stocks, save in your sweep vehicle and buy a couple-few at a time... no low cap get rich low cap stocks at all. before you know it you will have a comfortable net worth.
Any way SU is a good one as is T... a good start in my opinion.
I believe that is an individuals responsability to review his/her own tollerence to risk/reward .
Having said that my sentiment is buy to strong buy while averaging and I dont ever suggest options.
Because I have been averaging my buying since $28 and will continue to do so a drop will give me a sell signal and I will still be very much ahead.
