I guess at 10:17AM someone leaked out the PR cause it simply climbed all day long after that $11.38 low. 100% increase, cannot beat that IMHO. Good luck to you.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You do not seem to know how the O&G business works. This flaring in fields where there is inadequate infrastructure to capture the associated NG is normal, just as the law suits, etc. Whatever. Regards/luck to you.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
How high do you think KOG will go to this time. So you held on during the drop? Did you add some shares when KOG was down, and do you think Wed. will be a good day to add. What price do you think is to high to add shares?? Thanks, and Regards.
Do you really think KOG will drop when it hits 11.90?????. Looks like you want KOG to drop so you can get in since you probably missed the 10.20 to 11.35 run up in a few days. Regards.
jojo --- What is your explanation for Exxon lagging behind all the other majors since the 2008 crash? Lots of Exxon stock holders are not happy when they see their company lag behind the other majors. Only reason I see for buying Exxon is that they do increase their dividend each year - should be this may they increase the dividend. Regards.
This IBS drug has been way hyped. What you typed is correct .... its just a phase 3 trial. And there are other IBS drugs out there that work just as good, and also better. Somehow this got way out of control. You cannot predict this type of action. Regards.
hey KOG did well relative to other stocks, period. They get to low someone will make an offer they cannot pass up on. This is a really nice OIL machine with many many downsizing locations as a result of the down-spacing KOG has systematically tested.
KOG has a much higher EUR volume for their acreage than they thought they have, but cannot claim it until it is drilled and proved. Their biggest assets is the knowledge they gained from the controlled 4 to 6 to 8 wells in the Middle Bakken, as well as other formations (Three forks) they have proved will be much more productive than previously thought.
Market drops are market drops and KOG will go down with the market, but at some point it will not go down further since they have proved their concept for denser and larger EURs per well bore drilled, and keep in mind they have drilled up to approx 16 wells from one pad.
That is break-through technology. I say if it drops, BUYYYYY, or get left in the dust. KOG is a very well managed company in the Bakken. If I was still working in the O&G exploration/exploitation business, I would be very excited of their downsizing projects. We will use oil for many years, and KOG gas been a mini pioneer. Regards -- buy
Considering that the market has kept dropping each day, KOG has done well to hang onto an approx. previous low in Dec. Regards
I have to agree with you that Exxon looks as if it is in a 'stealth' liquidation mode. Back in the late 1980's and also in the 1990's many of the folks who worked at Exxon believed Exxon was in a liquidation process, but history has shown that Exxon is a great long term investment. Our country and the world will be using hydrocarbon resources for energy for decades to come. Natural gas will slowly become the most used fuel/energy resource on the planet. Thus Oil & Gas resources will be a viable business for many decades and Exxon is the largest natural gas producer in the U.S. So Exxon has a long term stealth future based on its past experiences, and based on the need for natural gas.
Again, I am amazed how Exxon has been labeled as a company that was liquidating since the 1980's, yet here it is number one in the Dow. If it is liquidating as some folks think, it is still a great and safe investment over the long run regardless of what people say and/or expect of Exxon. Buy the dips. Regards.
The dividend is 2.73% for the holders of Exxon. Usually volume goes up when the dividend is on hand. Will see. The dividend for May 2014 should increase higher than the present $2.52 dividend ($0.63 per quarter). Exxon has raised their dividend each year for 31 straight years. I assume the dividend will increase to about $0.67 per quarter or $2.68 per year.
The amount Exxon raises the dividend could be lower, or higher based on the past 3-4 dividends they have increased. It would be nice to get a 10 cent/quarter increase as they did in may 2012. Will have to see what happens.
Exxon generally follows the market and after the recent drop from $101/share to $92/share this time may be a good opportunity to buy Exxon on the dip. If it drops further, just buy more and collect the dividend until the share price goes up. If it doesn't go up immediately, then wait for the dividend increase in May. Hopefully we can get the dividend up to $3/share. Regards.
welbie100 --- looks like you feel exactly as 'sdfoster91' does ... he posted the same exact message as you ..... that's amazing.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Average is 12 million .... not above the av. by much at all.
It is not low volume ... Exxon trade 14 million shares today ..... average is 14 million.
At least give us some solid reason why you make the statement that a buyout is coming. We all like to get information, not wishful thinking. Regards.
OK folks, let's stick to the facts regarding KOG stock/company as it relates to the market and to the O&G industry. Stop the shoe throwing so we can all get good input ... positive or negative. Regards.
This issue regarding Obama's no pipepline and his deal with Buffet is what caused the greed with the rail cars. Buffet helped Obama get elected with the Buffet Rule -- Now Obama pays Buffet back by not allowing the pipeline leaving only rail cars to transport the excess oil. Talk to Buffet and Obama about greed.
Buffet was NOT buying Exxon at 95.20/share. He made his purchase during the 3rd quarter of 2013. You are doing a dis-service to folks on this board by giving them wrong information. Buffet paid about $85/share and again his buying was done by the end of the 3rd qtr 2013. Regards.
This is the most screwed up deal i have seen. Have not looked at my SOQ shares since before the settlement on the new shares, etc. Looks like my SOQ shares were reduced by 10%. And it looks like i now have .34 x SOQ shares of new MQLXF shares. My USSA brokerage account doesnt have any value for the MQLXF shares.
Guess i will have to call them. This is a really screwed up deal. Not even worth putting time in it. Regards
