    • >>Is that [Petrobras corruption] concern past now?<<

      I don't know, first I've heard of it . . . but corruption is a South American country . . . absurd./S

      >>I don't know . . . some of them are pretty deep and require state of the art drilling techniques, but unlike the US they're going after it. That's probably the most important thing.<<

      This just surprised me . . . do you realize Petrobras is the _world's_ seventh-largest company?

      I came across that in an article that, on 1 June, warned:

      <Petroleo Brasileiro SA may fall after its best month since December 2007 as lawmakers probe tax fraud allegations at Brazil’s state-controlled oil producer, BNP Paribas and Banco Geracao Futuro de Investimentos said.

      “Investors need to be careful, they just can’t ignore this,” Lucas Brendler, who helps oversee $2 billion including Petrobras stock at Geracao Futuro in Porto Alegre, said in an interview. “If the investigation finds something bad, and that’s clearly possible, the company will suffer.” . . . .>

      Is that concern past now?

    • >> . . .How long will it take to bring the fields into production?<<

      I don't know . . . some of them are pretty deep and require state of the art drilling techniques, but unlike the US they're going after it. That's probably the most important thing.

      >>If the Senate enacts the cap and trade bill, will PRB be a bigger draw to investors? Logic suggests it will.<<

      Anything anyone does to reduce supply helps those who are doing the supplying.

      >>The Brasilian oil discoveries and their determination to exploit them.<<

      Oh, I did read about those discoveries. They're massive. That's why Petrobras sounded familiar to me. How long will it take to bring the fields into production?

      I just looked at its chart for the first time. It's sparsely traded so easily controlled, isn't it?

      Hmmm, and the company is just a baby as far as being publicly owned. It's oldest chart is six months. Very interesting! If the Senate enacts the cap and trade bill, will PRB be a bigger draw to investors? Logic suggests it will.

    • >> . . What drew you to it? [Petrobras]<<

      The Brasilian oil discoveries and their determination to exploit them.

      >> . . . Before that, was crude getting bearish?<<

      Yep, but I don't think there will be a long term bear since the renewable alternatives that are supposed to wean us from oil are pure hype, greenie dreams and political manipulation. We're not going to get off oil until a truly cheap and capable electric car is invented and that just puts us on coal, natural gas, and nuclear.

      >>I'm sure it affects some of my stock, especially the oil . . . I own some Petrobras (PBR). Unfortunately I don't know how such moves affect it, and even if I did, it would probably only help to know future moves.<<

      Petrobras . . . I've heard the name but know nothing about the company. What drew you to it?

      Joe Duarte's newsletter says Nigeria's main militant group blew up a well head in Royal Dutch Shell's field, and that boosted crude overnight. Before that, was crude getting bearish?

    • >> . . . I don't know if the information in it — about the Swiss National Bank intervening in Sweden's currency and changing the fortunes of the US dollar yesterday — is something you need to know. . . .<<

      I'm sure it affects some of my stock, especially the oil . . . I own some Petrobras (PBR). Unfortunately I don't know how such moves affect it, and even if I did, it would probably only help to know future moves.

      >>[DRYS] Back down now.<<

      By less than a percentage point now. Another rare red stock is RIMM, down (2.24%) almost as much as AAPL is up (2.43%).

      In contrast to yesterday, oil is trading up with the market today. I wondered why, so opened this article that was below the energy futures. I don't know if the information in it — about the Swiss National Bank intervening in Sweden's currency and changing the fortunes of the US dollar yesterday — is something you need to know. The Swiss Bank's move brings up questions involving the Fed.

      Back down now.

      >>Good for Jobs and that ought to be good for a point or two on AAPL also.<<

      Most of the market is green today, including AAPL, but, surprisingly, excluding energy. Crude futures have been moving with the stock market. Did I miss something?

      It's nice to see DRYS leaping again.
