Oil and oil stocks take double hit today

The combination of a big build in U.S. crude inventories this week and fears that the escalating U.S.-China trade war will slow global economic growth (and global oil demand) took a big whack out of oil prices and oil stocks today.

Buffett gets paid to turn Chevron/Occidental battle over Anadarko upside down–but what about Occidental shareholders?

Occidental Petroleum (OXY) has brought Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) into its battle with Chevron (CVX) for control of Permian-Basin-rich Anadarko Petroleum (APC).

I’m selling Exxon Mobil out of my Dividend Portfolio as part of my annual portfolio rebalancing

I'm part way through the annual rebalancing of my Dividend Portfolio (with other portfolios to follow.) The initial stage of that process requires a close look at which of the stocks in the portfolio I'd like to keep for another year (based on their prospects for the next year) and which I'd sell because I […]

Cheniere is also a […]

Markets worry about everything this morning–especially bank and energy stocks

I dare you to find something global financial markets aren't worried about. And, moreover, many of the worries are re-enforcing each other today. So, for example, we've got U.S. Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer, saying on Sunday TV the the 90 day trade truce is a hard deadline. No deals in 90 days and the […]
