By any calculation, BP knocked it out of the park folks.
Absent the massive legal overhang, it's now Game On for the institutions to start playing here again --- stock should easily run into the 50s on ridiculously low P/S (currently 1/3rd its contemporaries), opportunities for net margin improvement (currently 1/5th its peers), huge cash stockpile ($40B by this quarter) and its attractive reserves portfolio being bolstered weekly as evidenced by the recent Siberian oil stakes / investments.
I expect resumption of their share buyback program soon and they're long overdue to at least match their peers on the net margin front --- doing so should return BP to cash flow generation figures comparable to its peer group and should push P/S valuations close to those observed more broadly in the integrated oil space (1- 1.1) --- in BP's case around the $100/share level -- in line with the valuations of its peers (easily achievable).
They showed up in the midterms and boy did the Dems get a shellacking, didn't when Romney and McCain ran --- I think this time you're going to get a major conservative turnout --- they are fed up with losers running their silly agendas and eating up bandwidth when the country has more pressing problems like competition, China, govt excess spending (Democrat Agenda).
Could be a messy summer
Incompetent Obama sure seems fixated on his radical agenda while he racks up more debt than all the administrations before him COMBINED. He's a total failure.
Not sure why you limited the discussion to home grown when I was referring to the global jihadist problem (e.g Air Products in France), but since you did let me remind you the instances you cite account for merely a fraction of the single 9/11 event deaths. If one factors in the African continent and the horrific jihadist record there, it's abundantly clear Radical Islam is responsible for more deaths to innocents globally than by any other means, even declared wars.
As for concealed carry, it's ideal under any scenario and you, since you're troubled by home grown extremists, should advocate for its wider use.
The decision was not unexpected and somewhat logical on the legal front. The unfortunate thing is the program's a bust having only helped a little less than 8M (out of the 45M uninsured)............total failure and big time costly for what little it's done. Another govt bureaucratic abortion --- the norm for the silly feds.
I wonder why it took Ford so long to adopt? (they're decades behind in thinking on many fronts) -------the world is moving fast and the Detroit-Dinosaurs need to step up the pace.
She donates to Democrats and to Republicans, but is a Moderate Republican in disguise. She's a class act with how she's helped people.
It's horribly sad what young black folks are doing in these inner cities --- why won't Clueless Obama address this??
I agree - the Republicans are the only ones who are willing and want to talk about this major worldwide evil (problem) ---- Devious Hillary's been skating around it.
The only "hoot" I've seen on this board is you, you old coot. Go get a job, volunteer to help people, or do something else productive (instead of spending your life blowing nonsense brain farts on this board ).
And while we're at it (flushing these sickos) we should also flush their silly Rainbow Flag ---- where they have some nerve putting their whackjob "colors" on a background with our stars (the states)..............burn it
Straight talking people with guts, drive.
The "concealed carry" option should have a (fingerprint activated) bio-lock integrated right on the dashboard .
The only thing these extremists understand is firepower and I'm glad I'm carrying. It's unfortunate that employees of the Air Products Plant in France weren't appropriately equipped -- all Americans should carry now to deal with this evil.
How can Untrustworthy Hillary Clinton run around condemning the flag when her husband (who disgraced the Office of the President of the United States) signed into law Arkansas legislation paying tribute to the flag, its legacy and institutionalizing it as part of the Arkansas flag? Untrustworthy Hillary was "glowing" at the ceremony where he signed it into law.
She's a disgusting liar and hypocrite-- always has been.
