    2017 a long way in the future in this market. I am avoiding petroleum related companies until sometime 2016. That may be too late but I don't have the stomach to watch principal melt away even if the dividend is attractive.

    I know COP has pledged not to cut the divvy but at some point they may not have any choice.

    When oil prices recover at what point does exploration and development suffer because they've dipped into cash to cover the divvy during hard times?

    Earning estimates slashed

    Things will get a lot worse before they get better. I am staying far, far away from anything that has to do with petroleum.

    Is Obama topping off the U.S. Strategic Oil Reserve? How come none of the talking heads are asking this question? There is more to the oil story than gasoline prices.

    Also - to the talking heads. Next time an "oil train" wrecks stick around long enough to find out WHY the train wrecked.

    US Cuba Deal

    Yeah, basically what the talking heads are saying. I would ask why the U.S. is in need of yet another source of tobacco, alcohol and sugar? Isn't this stuff bad for us? Maybe not providing it is sourced from Cuba. And tourism? There are dozens of Caribbean resorts already. What's so great about Cuba? (Although there are a few people I would like to send on a long vacation to Guantanamo Bay!)

    Latest Value Line (Feb. 6) has COP 2015 earnings at $1.25. "... these shares are best suited for speculative accounts... ."

    I don't see how COP avoids cutting the dividend.

    It takes a village to feed an ego.
