I just checked around and found nothing other that some "free" analyst note - I did not feel like registering. Guess it's just a technical haircut, or I'll have to find out after the fact.
Not a big time investor here, but use their plan, which I wish was more user friendly.
Last month I switched my plan off as the stock was nearing the high 140's, but then one week I saw the stock dive due to the biotech sell off, so I tried turning the plan back on to take advantage of the dip. (I like the automatic purchase as far as purchasing small incremental amounts without getting charged an arm and leg in commissions. With recurring automatic purchase though, you can't purchase on the fly.)
It seems like if you want to use the recurring optional automatic investment, one has to give it 15 days to set the ball rolling - like a probation period.
I was looking to purchase some around 136 now the price is nearing 143. I'll probably end up around 146-150 on the 15th of the month when my purchase goes thru. I doubt I will be trying to time any more purchases thru this plan :(
I have been holding this since '92. Very frustrating. I think all the analysts give MRO the thumbs up, but the institutions/market just favors the other producers, like OXY, APA. This is a slow mover, zigzagging slowly upward.
We will see how the intend to continue growing into the future. I think the margins are really low in the oil/tar sands, but then you don't have the exploration costs. The CEO seems to favor a higher growth rate.
Pretty ridiculous - this will pass.
I am in since about 345, prior split. I agree with you about keeping shares in retirement account. Very shareholder friendly company here. I'm thinking about adding some to mine.
Good to know. Last year wasn't so great, but glad to see or MRO getting some luv and respect. Hope they will save some cash for a nice div increase.
Why because we need them to be CHEAPER! So that traders will buy them for the cheep short program. This company is NOW overvalued because TODAY is TODAY, not like a week ago where this was a good company to pick up shares with our hard earned money, now we must move on. Pay very close attention to the latest lists in the mags/newsletters - always do exactly what they say. Move on to the next big mover - don't linger - follow them closely. (so sorry for the sarcasm).
I bought some too a while back around 300. I do not trade this everyday, but this seems redic and staged overselling is obvious. Do the bots care, no they are blind.
been giving this a look over past month, but no position yet. one thing that sticks out is how this co. is going to buy forest labs. they look to have very little cash, and a good bit of debt, plus negative eps. - read about the forest lab shareholders getting ACT stock and ACT using bridge loans, but wow...now the stories are coming across that they might be looking for more acquisitions?
