There must only be a Baker's dozen of us who hold OXY stock directly and not through a mutual fund! Very quiet on this board. So either Friday's move signals that the bottom for this stock is about $85 and some programs bought on Friday or someone has heard something about an announcement of the pending restructuring. Either way, it's long overdue to have gone up. Like you, I could have put this money into something else last 8 months and made more. Dividend is nice but without stock price rise, this is a laggard this year (and last.)
"Pray to God and continue to row to shore (old Russian proverb.) Hopefully there is a change in September.
