  • Bridget: #Notes: A lot of stocks that have been seeing pullbacks saw a bounce today. $SMH is one OIH - oil is going lower, still lots of overhead resistance. $BP moving higher. $WB $SINA $YY $JD - all making moves higher Some retail pushing higher - $LULU $TGT $EL $EXPR $ODP Medical devices seeing support - $MDT $BEAT $ALGN $TAN $JKS $CSIQ - moving higher $EEM - moving higher $WING - breakout $SAGE - breakout $APO - breakout $KEM - breakout, IBD50 $GRUB $YELP - even higher $TTWO - holding gap IPOs $VST $APPN $HCC $SGH Earnings after close: $LQ $MAR $W $CBI - very high IV $VRX $ALB
  • Bridget: Notes: $BHP $RIO - both have similar charts and are at important support point. A move higher would be continuation of longer term trend or a breakdown is a continuation of the shorter term trend. $BIDU - has been consolidating for almost a year, looking ready to breakout $BP $MPC - still my 2 favorite oil stocks $YUM $MCD $KO - all working $CALA - breakout to new high $CORT - breakout to new high $DAR - breakout to new high $QCOM - moving higher with little resistance $XLNX - looking extended but still in solid uptrend $DOV - breakout of 5 month consolidation $NOC $LMT - both close to breaking out $SBUX - watch for $62 $GE $CBI $T - seeing a bounce after a long downturn $FINL - was down on $FL earnings
  • Wolf: $BP Nice earnings beat, up 2.5%. Yieldhogs, not quite there, but 6.93% Dividend.
  • Bridget: Notes: $CVS and $WBA down on walgreen's earnings report $CRM - squeeze breakout $MCD $CAKE $SBUX - all rose today on not very good news, there is demand for these stocks and should be watched for an entry after this pullback $CONE $COR - these might also be good buys on this pullback $ESNT - nice breakout today, then pullback to top of the range. watch for phase 3 Oil stocks are down on the day but this pullback could lead to a buying opportunity. $COP $MRO $CVX $BP $OAS $SODA - phase 2 of this breakout $LLY - phase 2 $WIX - 2 days of inverted hammers, IV% is up at 100%, lots of volatility in this stock $EBAY - hit a new high and then sold off. Also seeing a rise in volatility in this stock $CX - hit a new 52 week high $JBHT - moving higher out of this base
  • Wolf: $BP $XOM London paper reporting speculation of $XOM is bidding for a takeover of $BP. $BP + 1.00 https://www.thestreet.com/story/14036563/1/bp-shares-surge-in-london-on-report-of-exxon-bid-speculation.html
  • champ: @phgruver $KMI ---- Really a lot of good news on this stock for those who would want to look....I'm still holding this long term full position and I will be doubling up at some point along the way....it's all about demand picking up. They are even involved in tankers with $BP and they just opened 2 new deep water berths in the Houston Shipping Channel.
  • champ: $KMI --- Missed on earnings and I wasn't on the call....looks like I could be adding in the morning because the stock dropped in the AH's. However, there was positive news... also reported in the AH's on many of their earning sectors. On their deep-water liquids berths in the Houston Ship Channel that were placed in service....and they received 4 new shipping tankers ....50/50 partners with $BP....way too much news going on...need to look if interested.

  • phgruver: @champ $NAT $BP I'm not sure if it's still true, but a year ago Herb was saying that $NAT is profitable at $10K/day. I've been long for a looong time, and the dividends have paid for the stock. It's all profit now!

  • Wolf: $BP Declared a $10/share dividend for shareholders of record 11/11/16.
  • Robert1965: @Wolf $BP I noticed that too , can't understand why it is not up can someone explain
  • Wolf: @Robert1965 $BP Normally when a company pays a dividend, the stock falls by the amount of the dividend on the Ex date. Not sure how options will work, but I suspect there will be some kind of adjustment for them as well.
  • Robert1965: @Wolf $BP Yes but normal is $.60/share, last in Aug 2016, I would think, it would be up, ex dividend, of $10/sh woud mean $24 share price ex-dividend, low of the year
  • Wolf: @Robert1965 $BP Fidelity thinks it is an error and should be .10/share or .60/ADS.
  • Wolf: @champ $CVX $COP $XOM $OAS $DVN Holding $CVX (calls) $BP $CVI $ETP $GUSH $USO $XLE $UNG. I guess $FCX has some oil component as well.
  • JJT1: @champ $XOM I noticed the BB very tight, as in Squeeze, On all three, $CVX, $BP, $XOM.
  • Wolf: $USO BTO Weekly 11.50 puts @ .04. Will insure my long position in $GUSH $XLE $CVX $BP $USO
  • sparky: $BP Does anyone have an idea as to what impact the falling Pound Sterling is likely to have on the stock?
  • Forexpro: @sparky $BP Hi, Sparky, Over a trailing 10-day average, the U.S. ADRs display a strong negative correlation with GBP/USD. Weaker GBP versus the Dollar, stronger ADR, other things being equal. While that's the reverse of what would be expected, $BP's receivables are largely denominated in Dollars, while many of its expenses are payable in GBP. So, a much weaker Pound, coupled with a higher oil price, will tend to give earnings a nice boost. Assuming, that is, that the company's Treasury people haven't been too aggressive about hedging. The price action suggests that investors believe that they haven't. Back when I was dealing with them, the people doing FX at the company were largely former bank dealers, all of whom were capable of recognizing a trend. :) FWIW; all the best!
  • sparky: @Forexpro $BP Thank you! Very helpful!
  • sparky: @Ajax4Hire $BP Thank you!
  • sparky: @JJT1 $BP Thank you!
  • Ajax4Hire: $BP Bought for long term account. Really like the dividend(at 7% now). Seems to have bottomed out from channel started back in 2016-02Feb.
  • JJT1: $BP Searching for value and British stock's that have been beaten down, expected $BP to be below support. Instead it is in middle of range, below recent 50 day SMA which crossed 200 day SMA and holding at 200 day. If that 7% yield holds this could be good play.
  • DAN: @jz24345SATIAH $XOM $CVX $EOG $RDS $COP $BP $VIG $VOO $VYM $LMT $RTN $NOC Hey jz2434SATIAH. Welcome to SMM, and thanks for posting your holdings. Doesn't really seem like your stocks are extended. Most seem to be working pretty well. I'd suggest deciding, on each stock, when/if you want to sell. Some of them seem to be stocks that you'd just want to hang on to. But those energy stocks are just starting to pop out of squeezes. Glad to have you here. Don't be a stranger! 8-)
  • jz24345SATIAH: New to SMM. The daily strategy sessions and weekend updates are excellent. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, experience and perspectives. Current holdings $XOM $CVX $EOG $RDS-A $COP $BP $VIG. Sold $VOO and $VYM recently. Plan to purchase $LMT $RTN $NOC, but concerned that the stocks are extended. (Will follow advice and start with a small position!)
  • eliasmavs99: @jz24345SATIAH $XOM $CVX $EOG $RDS $COP $BP $VIG $VOO $VYM $LMT $RTN $NOC Just want to say welcome.
  • Aragorn: $XLE - so many bullish engulfing candles out there in the $XOP and $OIH etc $HES $HAL $CVX $BP $CLR $DRQ JUST TO NAME A FEW and others are going rev strat daily for tomorrow or even later today
  • champ: @Aragorn $XLE $XOP $OIH $HES $HAL $CVX $BP $CLR $DRQ - I'm thinking that this turn around in WTI Oil is all about the walkout in Kuwaiti. If the workers call off this strike....we could be right back to where we were. The walkout was because of a PROPOSED wage cut...they have not cut yet and might not. I'm day trading 5 stocks in this sector and might not swing....just my thoughts.

  • champ: $BP - Had a big miss on earnings and the # they just reported was....$0.011 missed by 91% ....est was for $0.042....this news article I'm reading was on Bloomberg.... out of London RHRN....not good.
  • Forexpro: Re: #E-MiniFutures Good Morning, Friends, I've had the futures up since around 7:15 EST, and during that time they've traded "down to flat". The initial move lower from 1920.5 had me interested, but the contract fairly quickly traded back to around that level. Now the price action is soft again, with the volume not particularly interesting (that's characteristic of the extended session). There was no noticeable reaction to $BP's less than stellar report. The latter is currently 28.97/99 after closing at 31.70. We'll see how it goes; best of luck today!
  • Bridget: $COP and $BP starting to look like $CVX today. Would like to see a bit more volume on the breakout though.
  • steve71: $BP British Petroleum is outperforming the other oils on very good volume. Resolution of legal woes is salutary, no matter what the cost. Wondering if the news is now fully priced in.
  • champ: $USO - Some general info on what I saw on this oil price drop. I was ready for the inventory # and I held some oil stocks.....$CVX $XOM $BP $KMI $LINE $RIG and got back in $MRO and $OXY after the drop.. With one new buy $SLB. I rated all the stocks on this sell off ....1 thru 10 and some pipe line stocks never turned red or dropped very much. $SLB and $BP both of these stocks stay up over $1...they held up the best in this sector drop on my watch list.... along with $OXY it had a very slow drop and I got back in at $71.70. I don't have a clue where the price of oil is going but my stops are now back on ...I turned them off going into the #. Will follow up later...
  • champ: $FANG - Sold 1/2 this morning on the news that the tgt was lowered to $88 this morning at Topeka Capital but they said the stock still remains one of their top picks but it's dropping now and turned red just like $CXO did this morning ....so I'm now out. Any oil stock thats red is now on the bottom of my watch list but I had a good run on both. I just want to point out that both of these oil stocks don't have dividends....many other do and I have positions in $CVX $XOM $OXY $NE $ESV $RIG $BP $MRO $KMI $LINE and also these 3 stocks that don't have dividends $CIE $OAS and $BBG. I think the stocks that have dividends might not drop as fast on any turn in this sector IMO. I have trailing stops on all position and some have brackets. Also watching $SLB....no position.
  • mradams0621: @champ $FANG $CXO $CVX $XOM $OXY $NE $ESV $RIG $BP $MRO $KMI $LINE $CIE $OAS $BBG $SLB Do you ever trade the ticker $OIL? Would you agree it is not a good choice as an oil holding position? I think it is just used for short term trading maybe?
  • steve71: $BP BTO @ 34.20. BP is trading above the 50 dma, which is an essential criterion I am using for any long position. Yesterday's news removes legal/financial uncertainty. "The Justice Department and five states on 10/5/15 announced a $20 billion final settlement of environmental damage claims arising from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The deal, once approved by a judge, would resolve all civil claims against BP and end five years of legal fighting over a 134 million-gallon spill that affected 1,300 miles of shoreline. It also would bind the company to a massive cleanup project in the Gulf Coast area aimed at restoring wildlife, habitat and water quality."
  • steve71: $VLKAY $BP Not buying, but added Volkswagen to my Watch List. The media are talking about an 18 Billion fine. Please. GM was fined only fined 9oo million for the ignition issue that killed over a hundred people. Granted, VW pimped some clean air bureaucrats, maybe a higher offense. But 18 billion? For perspective, consider British Petroleum. When the Deepwater Horizon went down, PPS went from $60 to $28 in a week. A great buying opportunity, as it went back up to 48 in 3 weeks. It bounced hard, and buyers had to be quick. $BP is back down to $30, near the Deepwater bottom. Maybe that's worth watching too.

I'd stand back and watch them drop whew! Of course sector ETFs getting hammered too. No time to be bottom picking at these IMO; many breaking support ; lots of falling knives here too. Big distribution by institutional money as many throw in towel on the long side here. Might be some oversold ST bounce trades setting up but not much more from long side IMO.

Lots of head winds for BP. If they have to cut or suspend dividend this could easily drop 10%. My target based on H&S formation is $33.25

    BP PLC ($BP) has lost its bid to reduce the maximum fine it may face for the 2010 Gulf of oil spill. A

    maximum sought by BP. There has not been a ...
  • GreenGhost: $PBR $BP $TOT $RDS/A The mega cap biggest E&P players are all down at least 4% and in some cases more on big PM institutional size volume as spot oil takes another leg down to test the 50 level. Dip buyers from mid-December are getting hit and I suspect many are throwing in the towel yet again. These companies biggest markets are in the Eurozone. Domestic integrated major mega caps such as $COP, $XOM and $CVX are also down too all over 1% but less than their overseas counterparts as less reliance on a European customer base. In $XOM and $CVX cases, the natural hedge of owning refining operations is I suspect is softening the blow. Not so with $COP which spun off it's refining into Phillips 66 ($PSX).
  • GreenGhost: Following OPEC's announcement to keep its collective output target at 30M barrels a day, crude has continued its decline. The 12-member group, which pumps 40% of the world’s oil, will convene again June 5 in Vienna. West Texas Intermediate is down 5.9% at $69.34, with Brent trading near four year lows. Notable stocks and ETFs with larger declines coupled with elevated PM volume this morning include: $XLE down 5%, $RIG 8%, $STO 13%, $USO 6%, $SDRL 8%, $BP 5%, $HAL 5%, $PBR 6%, $TLM 14% and $UCO 12%. The price action in these names over the last 4 months, particularly with another big leg down here suggests the decline may not be over, not temporary and perhaps has additional downside.
  • jarch1: @mradams0621 $SDRL these big breaks accompanied by big volume usually start the accumulation process but it can take months to accumulate and move higher. Check your chart on $BP from when they had the oilspill in the gulf of mexico. be sure to pay attention to the volume. That doesn't mean the exact low is in but it is the start of a turnaround.

One thing for sure imo..the RISK PREMIUM for holding energy equities has risen / is on the rise for a bit. Will be looking for bargains. Currently positioned LONG a few: $MHR $MHR-PrD (Preferred D Series) $SDRL $MRO $EXXI $EMO Looking at $ESV to add .. not really interested in $RIG $HAL $BP except for 59 minute like trades. Too much headline risk in those right now. People who missed the post-Macondo energy move may get a chance to build a few positions over the next couple months. Stay vigilant. Cheers.
  • RON: $BP vs. $TSLA

    In the last 8.2 months from Jan 2 2014 TSLA made 96% or on track for 166% (might not happen) for the year dividing that out at the 8.2 months or 11.7% per month. BP lost 3.85% or 5.6% annualized more than the dividend which is taxable ...
  • gwenzee: @Ron-$BP - What a great post. Enjoyed it for all of its common sense. That is a commodity that is lacking in our politicians. Wish you could forward this to CA and DC politicos, force them to read it, and finally to use some of their time in a worthwhile manner to fix our energy problems. The EPA's power should be dismantled...IMO.
  • phefner: @Zmack46 like $ESV .. They don't have the headwinds $RIG will and have taken an impairment charge on that last qtr so looks, IMO, as the bad is known and it works higher. $RIG however has yet to know the extent of the impairments from the $BP ruling. I'm looking to hold $ESV as an investment and trade $RIG only.
  • JeffyJ: @philharmonic It might be linked to what I said about $BP last night. How I approached it. Not sure. If it was, I respect @DAN 's disdain for the negligence of BP. I also share it. However, he has mentioned himself that we're here to make money. Boycotting stocks has caused me to miss out on that exact thing. If I mis-paraphrased, I apologize. $BP up a smidge pre-open.
  • Aragorn: $BP found negligent
  • moneyHoHo: @Aragorn $BP arrogant crimials.
  • Aragorn: @moneyHoHo $BP - but they make great commercials telling us they are great :(
  • jagmiami: $BP, $SDRL - buying opportunity or not? any thoughts? I own both and see $SDRL looks like a buying opportunity; $BP is a bit tougher--but the $18 billion should now be a worse case scenario with upside if they win on appeal.
  • phefner: @jagmiami JUST a humble opinion...seen $SDRL find good support between 12% / 14% yield .. it doesn't venture there too often but seen it generally find buyers in there .. They have little Gulf of Mexico exposure so if its selling because of $BP its a GREAT opportunity. $BP .. no way IMO again to price that risk from today's ruling. There is likely more litigation headwinds now to come.
  • jagmiami: @phefner - Good point on $BP; as for $SDRL, it reported earnings slightly below expectations but said that they expected to maintain the dividend through 2016. Also said the business environment was challenging.
  • champ: @jagmiami$BP, $SDRL, $ESV - I own SDRL and ESV....I added to EVS because of recent upgrades and also it is on a 25 month low ...but who really knows.
  • :
  • sincity45: $BP bouncing off low, starter postion taken.
  • rj7150: @DragonFly $BP $AWLCF Is there a % withheld on BP from the source in the UK?
  • DragonFly: @rj7150 $BP - it's been years since I held BP so I don't remember the details, just that I sold it because I couldn't clain the foreign tax and then the yield wasn't worth holding the stock for because I was looking for high yielding stocks.
  • kking: $BP I like $BP here as a low risk trade with a stop just below 46.35
  • greberalan: $BP @kking Looks like a well defined trade on BP. Also, take a look at $BPT $BP Prudhoe Bay Royality Trust. Pays an 11% #dividend -- next #dividend around April 11, 2014. Let me know what you think about $BPT also.
  • mepcc1: @Dan - how does this relate to l/t holds - still use weekly support lines even though daily trend is def broken or in some cases rolling over - Looking at $MAIN - 5.94%div - $BP - 4.77% div - $ADP - promising bounce off 50dma Friday? Thanks
  • Wolf: $BP - Restrictions lifted from the Gulf disaster. Looks like it is at a good buy point. It bounced off the lower BB last 2 cycles.
