This company is undoubtedly the biggest POS company in the entire oil sector, certainly among majors. Exxon, Chevron, COP, Anadarco all at all time highs and this POS mired at the bottom of its 52 week range. Somebody please come and make an unsolicited offer to buy their assets and put this POS out of its misery. Used to be at the top of the majors heap, now in the sub-basement. Takeover is demanded.
The company is too big to be taken over. Having options is not a good place to be. I think you may even have to pay taxes on options that are not even exercised. RDSA is a good stock to trade and/or use to collect a nice dividend. Long term appreciation has not materialized. In fact the price has not really changed since the 4 for 1 stock split.
