APC appears to be in an uptrend since mid January after having taken a huge dive. And, it took another dive with dividend news, but, is moving upward again. In looking at todays move, the market must like the adjustments to the workforce that came out in todays 8-k filing. http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/773910/000077391016000081/apc2016-03x118xk.htm Quote:Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities. On March 10, 2016, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (the “Company”) notified employees of a workforce reduction program to align the size and composition of the Company’s workforce with its expected future operating and capital plans. In connection with this workforce reduction program, the Company estimates that during 2016 it will record a total of approximately $380 million in pre-tax expenses related to employee-termination benefits, including expenses for cash severance costs, and expenses for acceleration of stock-based compensation and retirement benefit expenses. The expected 2016 expenses include approximately $260 million of cash expenditures related primarily to one-time severance costs and lump-sum retirement benefit payments related to non-qualified plans. The Company expects this program to be substantially implemented by March 31, 2016. These amounts are estimates, and the actual amounts may vary based on a number of factors, including timing and valuation of certain benefit-related payments. The Company anticipates providing additional information about its expected annual savings associated with these actions concurrent with the release of its first-quarter results in early May 2016.
