If reading the IEA predictions was all it took, we would all be rich, right? I believe our current situtation is not enough demand. Soon it will be not enough supply. Re Russia: Read Tom Clancy's Command Authority. It is the playbook for Putin's activities in the Ukraine at this moment. If he is successful with this, he will move north to the baltic countries and pull the same maneuvers. The nutless wonder in the wh will watch in awe, but do nothing.
Lybia has stopped producing, possibly ditto Nigeria reductions/ cessation if the ebola keeps going, Iraq supply in jeopardy, deep water drilling diminishing, predictions of another cold winter coming up and the experts calling for fracking rapid declines all seem to indicate that the price should increase, but every day it goes down. Something other than the free market is in control here. What could it be? Low oil prices would reduce the capability of terror organizations including dear old russia, but I don't think we can influence that with the current 'leadership'. Any ideas?
The sa guy stacks the deck nicely to support his rationale for reducing the dividend. He claims he is not short, but didn't say he wasn't working for shorts.
That big short position on the euro should start to pay off one of these days. Can't be too soon for me. This 2.5 cent dividend is getting very old.
He cherry picked earnings from quarters when two refineries were down for maintenance and projected future free cash flows to capex spending ratios that would not support the distribution, stating they would have to reduce it eventually. This looks like is a good time to add shares, down over 6% today and still falling like a rock. SA does not deserve such power.
It may, after the x date and it hits 39. You should pay attention to history on this stock. You will make more money.
Maybe they will short more euro's. That was a genius move . Is the indian girl still there? I hope not. And no, we are not being fairly compensated. The only way that would be right is if you are an employee. If you are, you are obviously overpaid. My $025 worth.
doubt it gets that low til post div. You might want to not bother this time. The analysts want to have their way with this stock, so it could be a non typical pattern this time. I will only have 40% of the normal quantity this quarter.
Never listen to those who post on yahoo message boards. 90% are posers, esp the 10000 share buyers (never do that...). You will be better off buying index funds and sound, low fee mutual funds from Vanguard. They, at least, have professional management. With stocks, you will buy high, like yesterday, and sell low, like today. The market managers have that psychology down to a science. I trade every day and have done so for 40 years. I've done well, but it is a full time job. Take the easy way. Dollar cost average your way in and forget about it for 20 years or so.
In nature the only constant is change. Consider the inputs into the system that determines the planet's temperature. There are many, but the 600 lb gorilla is the sun. The scientists, who are rewarded for finding "issues" and "solving" them will continue to do so, but they know that it is well beyond their capabilities. The next best choice for them is to cheat the data and conclude for the worst which assures them eternal funding. Their answer to the question what is the sum of 2 + 2 will always be, 'what do you want it to be'. Why do I get the feeling that I just wasted five minutes?
