Statoil has gotten some good write-ups lately. I like dividend paying stocks. Shares are "cheap" right now (on sale!) STO is and has been buying back shares. (you can easily see how many shares on their web site)Unlike many other companies that just "annouce" a buy back.
Merger with Norsk Hydro's gas/oil exploration looks to be be a great move.
Lastly, this "drop" in oil prices won't last much longer, spring is on the way, more driving, we americans will be getting lulled back into our gas guzzling mode. China and India are hungry for oil too.
