I've been considering this as well...You can't argue with a %13 profit. I am also of the belief that post split there might be some dumping / repositioning of shares into 1 company or the other that could drive down price short term. However that is purely speculation. Anyone else have any thoughts?
See when it comes to oil I think the whole middle east issue is a double edged sword. On one hand it would drive up the price of oil which is good for COP but on the other if war does take place (and US always has Israel's back) we could see an overall drop in the market.
I agree with you troll. Price inflation is already picking up steam and what better hedge against inflation and Middle East craziness than oil? I have been and will remain a long term holder of this stock.
