Would a purchase of shares of Berkshire Hathaway Inc @ $173.3k per share be a better risk reward to the investor than investing the same amount of dollars split between in CVX, EXOM, COP, BP & MRO? Just asking?
CVX has seemed stagnant in recent weeks....I like to trade this stock...sometimes I am a buyer...often a seller when technical indicators indicate overbought with fundamentals...Seems CVX is rather stagnant....whole market was up today. Curious if next week the accident will effect the share price as well as it being passed the ex-dividend date....perhaps downward momentum for short to midterm?
XOM is running up quite nicely!....buffet made admission to adding a large stake today.
Dow, I posed that question to myself about 5 years ago. My solution was to invest in an ETF called the XLE. On a weighted basis, it is mostly CVX, XOM, & COP. My strategy is to follow it run up as oil runs up, sell covered calls and reap the benefits. It's worked out rather well.
I did the same. Worked for CVX for 30 years. After retirement had too much CVX, too many eggs in one basket, said my financial advisor. Diversified as per advice from my f.a. and one of the stocks was XLE. Have been more than satisfied.
Having said that, CVX, what a great company……!! Treated me very well, challenged me at every turn, gave me many growth opportunities even though I didn't think I deserved them, worked me hard, took care of my family and compensated me well. I loved my time with CVX!
