    In a low and negative interest rate environment, BP's strong dividend and industry moat allows it to secure it in a welll diversified business. The Russian income has increased at least 15% just in the Rubles over 15% appreciation basis. Not to mentioned its capital appreciation. Oil has increased from 30 to 50 dollars, that is over 50% increase, perhaps time is right for BP to increase 50% from the its 30 dollar mark, that;s should point to 45 dollars at least. With the multiple effects for years to come dividend, this is a winner. A core staple to have int he portfolio to ride the oil renounce phase while collecting juicy dividend. That's over 700% return over 1 % 3 years saving accounts interest. .

  • This will attract all kinds of new applications to their cloud. It is only one of the many patents IBM cranks out every year. Nanostorage also was successful . Take both CPU and Storage together, you have a super winner onhand for years to come. Competitors not even come close in these fundamental science and research. Not google, not facebook, microsoft or Oracle. This is what Oracle of Omaha can see that we could not envision.

    How could Barclay be so cheap? It is only 0.4 of book value. What is on the book that deserve stock priced below book at such a big discount? It is selling assets and looks like a bargain to me. The dividend is paid while you wait.

    My strangest investment is BP

    Just receive another round of juicy dividend. Looking forward, the 45 billions penalty is behind BP, BP is as lean and efficient as ever. It is a staple component of my fund/ As one of the lowest cost producer and the LNG export to Asia for gas increasing, the growth will be reignited along with the lifting of Russia sanction with new president, I can see upside more than downside. Not to mention oil will hit $60 by Sep. In time, oil should reach 70-80 range. World consumption in China and India are still increasing, that is over 50% of world population. BP has the best relationship to China and has already made inroads with few successful partnerships and favorable treatment in Brits China relationship.

    Its cognitive, Don;t you see ): If you know IBM, you probably know blockchain. That is another 100 billions + high profit margin business for IBM. I hope that you are not to late in burning mid light oil to understand the transformation IBM is undertaking,.If you short IBM, you are in danger territory. This will be more valuable than Apple and Google probably.

    Oil has already gone back to over 46 from 40 since I started this thread. I hope $50- 60 oil is right according to expert by the second half. Betting against BP is like betting against a giant with a wood stick, When the giant marches with the oil price, while the downstream continuously provide the fuel, the giant can win on many fonts. The Russian oil assets provides years of revenue and a pathway in selling to the hugh Chinese market is the growth and gold nugget that you do not find in other oil major. Think doubling and quadrupling of the output market in the long run. .

    buy both! Value investing is never out of style. Both are cash generating machines. I am happy to see the price going down as a long term investor while they are buying back shares. Here is the share counts. 1.51 in Sep, 1.44 in ,Nov, 1.42 in Feb, 1.37 in Mar, I am owning more and more shares and can increased the EPS for ever.. This is the exact effect that you want to see for Apple and Gild. Gild is executing the share buy back at an excellent timing with holding the cards in the chest to buy back shares cheap, cheap , cheap. The amount of cash Gild and Apple are generating are crazy. GILD - 19 billions, Apple - 50 billions. Great choice.

    It is backlog is healthy and is absorbing the acquisition 2 years back. The catalyst will be the no CO2 emission technology. With current valuation, and typcially high return on equity of its business, it will not be long the effect of acquisition effect will be gone and ROE is at over 30% mark.

  • Wonderful acts as management see it stock is way under valued. Mgmt typically save the great news after the share buy back finishes. It was able to buy back almost 30-40% more shares for the same amount of money. It will increase EPS by 30-40% in other words for many future years to come. .If it continuous generate cash like this and buyback stocks, the EPS will increase by 15 -20%% a year compounded easily. What a steal.

    Bond rate seems to rising steadily too. It will be great for Met. I think inflation will take hold. The split will generate higher return - it will be the next catalyst. Stock market is still where money will go for next few years. We never really have a true recovery until MET and the banks are earning hugh money. They are poised to shine and will be too late for others to jump in to buy it cheap when that happens. .

    It also attract vendors to align with IBM in terms of cloud offering. Look at the announcement of Bell is offering IBM hybrid Cloud offering, AT &T does the same thing. When the computing usage of cloud is increasing, there is a need to increase speed for massive amount of data.. IBM is much better in terms of cloud offering due to their strong business knowledge and integrated enterprise solutions (e.g. SAP), It is solving business needs other than offering low end bar metal as Amazon. Plus , Amazon nor google can support Hybrid cloud. That's the kind of value added services clients want. These announcement occurs in the first quarter, the sales will accelerate as over 41 global data centers are fully operational. Have you visit the iBM cloud site to get a glimpse of the powerful services IBM is putting together? You may have thought that it is Apple or Microsoft site. It has completely leap forward as the next generation portal. It's presentation and easy of use is better than Microsoft in my view.Development work in the past year is taking shape and continue the explosive growth. Let the quantum computer rules and push IBM to be the most valuable company in the next generation of computing!
