Shell would stop it’s share repurchase program before cut dividend I picked up Exxon today 8%+ yield
Ya I got in RDS/B today think I will sell some PUT Premium at 23.5 strike on BP tomorrow and if it hits I take the assignment. That would give me 22.5 shares if not I would keep the one dollar premium.
either way works for me!
Trading like there was a recent disruption in the oil industry
BP trading like a divvy cut is coming
I also like CVX. I have sold PUT premium on all three of them currently. It's like getting a extra dividend! I also have a Put against them so if I have to get assigned and take ownership I am protected to the down side!
When it comes to yield and safety I believe BP RDS and Valero are the best ... BP and RDS won’t cut necessarily... they always could
Right now the yields are fantastic BP and RDS are in pretty good shape to continue paying unlike OXY that just reduced there's from .72 down to .11.
There is going to be some cuts after this latest market hair cut?
Yes but price is less so yields are close minus the tax
RDS/B doesn't have the ADR Tax deducted from the dividend like RDS/A and BP.
RDS/B pays .94 a quarter I haven't held BP in some time isn't dividend
Last time oil took a dive like this RDS/B went to paying the dividend in shares instead of cash to avoid reducing it!
If Oil continues to decline you can bet dividends will be cut. Nice little recovery today!
What’s difference between RDS.B and RSD.A?
I prefer RDS/B over BP dividend as BP has a ADR Foreign tax taken out of the dividend.
Both are very attractive right now!
Keep on saying May while I collect it
Divvy may be cut, possibly in the short term
Agreed, this is a long term hold
At the end of the day if a security is at an attractive price has a 8%+ yield and a sustainable dividend I’m buying it
Ha!..you think?...I added today. I am not trading it though.
I like 10% yield :)
Hi Eric. lol
$BP Oil advances as Iran 'harasses' British tanker
Continuing yesterday's big advance that bought crude over $60, oil prices extended gains overnight by 0.7% to $60.82/bbl amid the latest Persian Gulf tensions.
Three Iranian vessels tried to block the passage of the BP (NYSE:BP)-operated British Heritage through the Straits of Hormuz, but backed off after the HMS Montrose - an escorting military ship - "pointed its guns" and "warned them over radio."
The incident comes almost a week after British Royal Marines boarded an Iranian tanker, Grace 1, off Gibraltar and seized it on suspicion that it was breaking sanctions by transporting oil to Syria.
BP to continue to import Venezuela oil despite US sanctions. Says Forbes Magazine‘s Kalev Leetaru:
“In the case of Venezuela, the idea of a government like the United States remotely interfering with its power grid is actually quite realistic. Remote cyber operations rarely require a significant ground presence, making them the ideal deniable influence operation.”
“Widespread power and connectivity outages like the one Venezuela experienced last week are also straight from the modern cyber playbook. Cutting power at rush hour, ensuring maximal impact on civilian society and plenty of mediagenic post-apocalyptic imagery, fits squarely into the mold of a traditional influence operation,” he continues.
For those of us who have spent years covering US irregular warfare in the Middle East, infrastructure targets are part and parcel of these wars?—?sometimes via direct strikes, other times via proxies and sabotage operations.
I’m not just talking about cyberattacks like the US/Israeli-made Stuxnet virus that destroyed hundreds of centrifuges at Iranian nuclear facilities.
In Syria, for instance, the US military specifically targeted major economic infrastructure under the guise of ‘fighting ISIS.’ These include but are not limited to oilfields, wells and facilities, electrical transformer stations, gas plants, bridges, canals, a number of vital dams and reservoirs in the country’s northern agricultural belt?—?and power generation facilities.
And US-backed proxies? —? part of the Pentagon and CIA’s ‘irregular army’ in Syria? —?targeted bread factories, wheat silos and flour mills to deprive a population of basic food staples.
As opposed to conventional wars, US irregular warfare seeks to covertly use influence ops to turn the largest part of a country’s population, the “uncommitted middle,” into supporting regime-change. Destroying infrastructure, creating shortages, unleashing political violence, propaganda dissemination?—?these are all steps outlined in the US military’s Special Forces Unconventional Warfare manual to create a disgruntled population that will turn on its government.
And cyber warfare is the newest theater of engagement for the Pentagon, which is now openly ramping up its investment in “lethal cyber weapons,” regardless of the civilian casualties these attacks will leave in their wake.
So far in Venezuela around 20 people are reported dead due to the blackouts, though I’ve seen some opposition sources place that number north of 70
