Hey Gerald...quit calling us losers...it already hurts when you ARE a loser, but to be then called one by a fellow in the same bucket...well that is just too much reality for one day. Well, I have hope again, so guess the risk seems worth it once more...lol. And congrats on the self-deprocating humor. It speaks well of you and any humor on this ugly site is a good thing. Now get to work and get some of that positive mojo working for us. I think we all deserve a POSITIVE kick in the butt for a change to reward patience and loyalty. I guess others are more loyal than me, but hey, I'm more loyal than IOC deserves, so gimme some good luck.
You must be a total moron, meancody....it's HIS thread. It may be negative, but he is not adding a slant to anything, unlike YOU, #$%$!!!
Of course it is especially impossible for ANYONE (including those on this or the SHU board who might claim some unique insights) to predict IOC's short term or daily movements. As often as not they are 180 degrees opposite of what one might product based on "news", or more general industry or market movements. But few seem to predict this stocks movements medium or long term either. Bonk and Raiseyou are the only ones that I can think of whose timing seems to be better than average. Feel free to stand and claim me, me, if any of you validly have been able to "play" or day trade this stock. But as long as the 6 years I have tracked IOC, it was a little more based on rumor in the phil days. Now that Hession has arrived with what seems like his "no insights" communication strategy, it just feels like we are adrift and subject to games and whims on a daily basis. I do yearn for stocks that correlate better with their industry, with analysts ratings, and with seemingly relevant "news", but not this stock. At least we are able to commiserate with our fellow longs or in my case, a long who has turned into a medium (long with significant in's and outs. Best of luck to you/us as oil and gas prices seem they will continue to solidify.
"greatest risk of takeover if we're still trading sub 60" ...Risk???? Give me $50 and I will be outa here so fast your head will spin
You have seemed to have an uncanny ability to pick the IOC price highs and lows....so what is your prediction on how low we will go THIS time. Starting to feel like a bottomless pit.
You are right, but most will figure this out only AFTER the wild success of this application area. Same as the downloaded music revolution, the iPhone's wild success, Apple pay..the list goes on. It is the irony of investment in this company that so many cheer at the possibility it will stumble while missing the huge potential in its new ventures.
