"where did u get this info". The 'info' is a result of DD and research, I believe. You're not going to pick up a magazine and gain investment knowledge.
optimist01 ? You need to change your id to pessimist + 99. Although you are correct in the similarities you neglect to include the positive reinvention of the leading overall tech company. Kodak fell flat on its face and offered nothing new. IBM is a LEADING software implementation provider, a LEADING and probably overall the MAIN contributor to the 'cloud', a leading service provider and the list could go on and on.
"COP is trading where WTICrude was OVER $70, last Nov- someone is wrong'" Someone is wrong. You meant to say that the investment community is wrong maybe ? There is rarely logic attached to a stock price. dirt has it right, ( logic and fundamentals) for sure, but when it comes to investing we really don't know what goes on behind the scenes. I'm a long term HOLD and these interruptions don't affect me at all. I collect a huge dividend and then peacefully go to sleep at night.
With this stock it never seems to be the right day to BUY....... or SELL, Every day is a 'hold' for us conservatives. So many conflicting opinions day to day plus the political events. Anyway, I bght and am awaiting now a bigger dividend payout. How boring......right, marfly.
myth.....stock buybacks increase the stock price. They don;t. What this accomplishes is another back door entry and opportunity for the exec's to raid the cookie jar. Bad for stockholders. Raising the dividend, takes money from the exec's cookie jar and increases stockholder value. Good for stockholders.
stoxx, I was having a peaceful snooze until you came along. Buying more soon !!!
Marfly, I agree. I will buy some more when the dust settles. Is there a "band" that clues us in ? What an opportunity
buying back shares is sooooooo......2006 . All companies do that. It does not help the bottom line. We need to grow revenue. Please Ginny, can you help us with that ?
Agreed, but I urge you to not respond to the robots. I believe that they have a system akin to the robo callers. Do not even give them a thumbs down.
stock....you sound smarter than the Dutch ? They don't know what they're doing ? They didn't think this out ? You should apply for a job with Shell. Go to the top immediately. My only worry is if they can maintain the div. now that they need mucho euros and stock to buy this outfit. Don't think for a moment that Shell will be abandoning the oil business in favor of gas. Its not going to happen.
