Any entry in the 68's (if you think the rate hike will be Dec) and you get a nice 2-3 dollar pop.
You just have to consider the odds of rate hike this month or in 3. Duk could test 66-67 with the rate hike confirmed.
to keep the div going...
The classic business school mantra for the last 30 years: "The shareholder comes first"
DUK held strong until today - the only difference from what I saw was the interest rate spike in bonds - did that play a role? Or is this simply the Fed is going to hike in Sept ? Anyway, high 60's you just buy it.
and they have no plans to do so...They want to burn fracking down one company at a time. I am cool with this! We get to keep our shale for a latter day and drive with 1.50 gazzoline for the next decade/
Ron Miller ( Son in law) of the Disney was my neighbor - stock was less than 10 bucks in those days...I think it was less than 5. Gerald Ford was President/
The only downside is the rate hike - We know that's coming sooner than later. That will drop PPS about 3-5 dollars in my opinion.
If that gets touched - COP falls another 15% and that just might happen. COP can then buy back shares at $38 and sit it out for 3 years.
Americans will never allow more consolidation in the Airlines or the Oil companies. We have seen this movie 3 times and it's why today's manipulation and price fixing is so rampant.
$38 is the next stop and the oil pits are hoping that has some level of stability. No one really knows where oil could fall other than to look at the bottom of $28 last time around. Anyway - COP next stop is 45 and you can print this post on some fine Habana tobacco leaves and then smoke it.
