We have all had to make sacrifices such as working at pay levels beneath where we would normally be at. Well everyone except the politicians who rape our country at the behest of the Sociopath Billionaires who own Wall St. That being said if you believe that working for minimum wage $7.25 an hour is remotely fair while corporate America reaps record profits then you are a Republican. Had minimum wage came even close to tracking inflation over the past three decades it would be over $20.00 an hour. Do I think McDonalds Employees should make $15.00 an hour, No I don`t. I think $11.50 an hour with raises annually based on several areas of performance. No one can come close to existing on $11.50 an hour but it`s a whole lot better than $7.25. These People YES REAL PEOPLE w three.ith lives, families rent, food utilities at $ 7.25 take your pick which ONE are you going to pay? Certainly not all
Just in case you haven`t noticed oil is off roughly 60% the market is selling off and EPD is holding up quite well considering. All I see is a great buying opportunity.
And let me guess, you were the smart one who saw this coming and shorted it all the way from 40.00. No you were just like everyone else YOU loaded up at $38, $35, $25 and so on. You`re only a Big Shot in your own mind.
Your Post sounds almost prophetic, to bad it`s BS. Every job they do is high risk, I worked for them and many other High Risk Refinery Contractors in the early to mid 2000s. Most of their contracts are Time and Materiels Jobs THEY MAKE A MINT. A FEW are Hard money jobs where there is a set price and if CBI goes over by Twenty Million they eat it. They have billions in insurance to cover EVERYTHING and they`re just Hoarding money to skim themselves.
I think you are correct in buying more. I actually made money from NVGS mainly by accident. I generally don`t invest money in companies with no track record and no dividend. I only bought a couple hundred shares at $$24.45.45 and sold at $31.27. Not a great amount of money but these days I`ll take what I can get. At face value NVGS seems to be making all the right moves, but with so little information available it`s hard to make a somewhat informed decision. I only originally bought shares because I love oil stocks of all varieties. Drillers, Shippers, Pipeliners, Refiners you name it I like it. Needless to say I`m down roughly 20 percent from about six weeks ago, hence the dividends. HAL is a good buy here.
I guess you`re living proof that they do. Hope you had a good weekend,now run along child.
Come now Screw, you have now succeded in reducing your age to a ten year old. Of course I keep responding to your Little Boy Comments so that doesn`t really show much maturity either. We better call it a draw and part friends so that you might quit embarrassing yourself. Enjoy the weekend.
Come on #$%$ only prove my point with your childish reply. Like I said before, run along now I think I hear your Mommy calling.
Kevin O`Leary as a BAC shareholder is angry that BAC just caves in to various illegal schemes rather than fighting it out in court. He says the Government is flat out stealing shareholder money. He says it with such conviction that he believes it to be true. Tens of thousand mostly poor individuals MOSTLY POOR languish in prison for fraud of less than $10,000. BAC commits fraud against Millions of people and there is a TON of EVIDENCE and he wonders why they don`t fight it.
Lest we all remember that a vote for either party is a guarentee that the status quo will remain intact. A vote for Republicans will also further crush the life out of the 100 million working poor, mostly families who already not earning enough to exist let alone live. The Republican Mantra, We`ve yet to meet a family that we won`t KICK WHILE THEIR DOWN.America has had 200 years of these two Do Nothing Amoral Slugs and kjust because your personal economy may be fine most peoples are not. But i`ll refer back to the Republican Mantra.
If oil drops more buy more. If you`re old enough to remember, how many times has oil crashed only to rebound to $100.00 on some manufactured crisis either here or some mid east hell hole. The big money is profiting all the way down and when they determine the right time oil will rise again. Don`t you think with the Trillions they Control that they can push an entire sector any way they wish. Look at Oils History. Even though I hold some shares of PGH i`ll admit that there`s probably better oil related companies to wait out the doldrums, but the ship will sail again.
Another Tax Advantaged Job Creator laying off thousands. They were talking about First Time Home Buyers dropping to the lowest level in thirty years even with an improving economy. Perhaps it`s because the economy isn`t improving. It`s all smoke and mirrors False numbers if you will. These layoffs are a perfect example. Those layed off wereprobably making a living at their jobs. The jobs that most of them will end up with will pay between less and FAR LESS. Sure hiring is up and the unemployment is on track as they put it, however the jobs being created are #$%$ that a teenager couldn`t live on unless living at home. They have harped on for Five Decades that it`s a consumer driven economy, thats a FACT. So what happens when the consumer has no money. The proof that the Economy is improving is millions anually slip into poverty ( My Family Included ) and another sign of a strong economy is Pawn Shops and Pay Day Loan Businesses springing up in what used to be middle class areas. Wall Street and the Government are Lying through their Tax Payer Funded Beautifull Smiles to the entire country. The facts are published almost daily that the only ones whose economy are the ones that didn`t need any improving.
I too am a long term investor in EPD. Owned some since 2003 and will own it until death do us part, then my wife will own it. I`ve held on this long because it always delivers, ALWAYS. It doesn`t yield as much as some of the other MLPs but in my opinion its the most stable of them all. I had to train my brain not to worry about the numbers or the press releases and look extremely long term. As far as them being SMUG I have noticed that also over the years and I must say that SMUG looks good on no one. The organic growth is what sets EPD apart from the rest. It will have ups and dopwns like any other company but in twelve years my cost basis is Zero and i`ll add a few shares now and again. Good luck with EPD and know that you have held this stock for years for a reason.
