    Things to ponder

    Zer0t01,
    I used to be young
    With a fast silver tongue
    Just going through life without tension
    But good old Ten Meaux
    Got two years to go
    And then I'll be getting my pension
    I'm a man on a mission
    With an average ambition
    But all of us sometimes can fail
    I'll wake when I wake
    Can choose to sleep late
    But I won't have to listen to Shell

    Meaux Out

    RDS-A with new leader ( Ben B.), stock buy-backs, profits possibly rising from trimming the fat, announcement coming at the end of this month, X-date two weeks after announcement, dividends rewards holding, new oil discovery in GOM, etc.
    All of this and there's still that big "IF" word floating around in all our heads. Let's face it, investing these days is more and more like gambling. You got to know when to hold and know when to fold. I also noticed that the Bollinger bands are squeezing in to 3 $ range, but at a slight upward trend.

    Market index showing weakness

    Yep, there's lots of "IF" in the air these days. Like my late Grandfather put it; if the dog wouldn't have stopped to poop.....he would have caught the rabbit". I do agree with you though, the weakness in the European Index is definitely something to watch and the devaluing of the Euro currency doesn't help the RD share price either.
    The quarterly announcement date is slowly approaching and no one seems to know what the profits will look like. RD keeps trimming the fat and buying back shares which seems to prop things up, but there's always that "If" word that keeps investors leery.
