  • Is BP Shooting Itself In The Foot?

    By Nickey Friedman - September 1, 2013 | Tickers: BRK-A, BP, XOM

    BP (NYSE: BP) keeps on fighting and appealing its own settlement for the business economic loss claims, mostly challenging the interpretation of the settlement by court-appointed administrator Patrick Juneau.  BP has lost every attempt and appeal thus far.  On Friday, BP added a new challenge asking for the entire settlement to be overturned.

  • A Portfolio of Dividend Stars

    By Ryan Peckyno - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: BP, DRI, INTC, PM

    Over the past couple of months, investors who chased yield have gotten crushed by the market. But with the 10-year Treasury rate below 2%, who can really blame them? We all have that urge to chase large payouts. Still, dividend chasers need to consider several factors when evaluating a company for their portfolio. 

    One major factor to consider is why the stock has a high yield, particularly if the yield more »

    By Marie Palumbo - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: BBRY, BP, CVX, NOK

    When China experienced double-digit economic growth, multinationals probably felt like there was plenty of market share to be had. The pie kept getting bigger. But now that China’s growth is slowing, the pie has more definite boundaries.

    By Nathan Kirykos - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: BP, EPL, RDS-A, SGY, WTI

    In the first half of 2013, my only bullish recommendation among all the offshore energy producers was Stone Energy (NYSE: SGY). I discussed Stone Energy's undervaluation in February, March  and May 2013. The stock has not betrayed my confidence and has risen 40% since then.

    By RJ Towner - August 6, 2013 | Tickers: BP, CVX, COP, XOM

    By Jason Bond - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: BP, CVX, XOM

    There is a saying that strength begets strength. With Chevron (NYSE: CVX) shares trading near an all time high, should shareholders buy into Chevron's strength?
