  • bsafriet: @champ $HES $APA $EOG $BP $OKE $HFC $AMZN $FANG $PXD $CXO $ERX $ANZN $DJI #best-trading-position-has #experienced-traders-only #News #Prime-Day #might #no-way Looks like we had a good day. I’m just sorry that I didn’t jump back in with $GUSH $ERX. My only loser today was $TWTR, but re-entered after the turn. Didn’t have any oil service companies at the open today, but did pick-up some $WFT for a swing trade. Re-entered $APA and $HES, Added to $EOG, new positions in $FANG and $MRO. STO calls on my long shares of $MSFT and $MU, picked up some $INTC as it moved up into the gap, and re-entered $PRLB after it filled the gap. Held over my long calls in $IWM and $STMP. Busy but profitable day — hope yours was as well.
  • bsafriet: ...
    Txs for getting back to me @champ. I don’t have an account with Schwab, but will try to access the video you referenced. Like you, I’m also holding some energy positions, but was stopped out of $HES and $APA 7/2 when my aggressive stop ...
  • champ: @bsafriet $HES $APA $EOG $BP $OKE $HFC ---- $AMZN---- Less news is positive, know news on Tariffs, would be even better. IMO, NOKO is a non-event, for the markets but the news media, would like to make something out of it. I'm have been trading...$FA ...
  • Ajax4Hire: $BP - British Petroleum; Sold my entire position this morning. Out of Oil for now; wait for another time to re-enter.
  • bsafriet: @champ $GUSH $MPC $ERX #Off-Shore-Markets I saw gasoline prices at $3.00/gal when I was out and about earlier. My guess is that refiners and retail are going to be raking it in. Will be adding to names already holding and looking for others. Long $VLO $DK $HFC $BP. How much further can this move in the domestic oil and gas industry run? I don’t know but I’m keeping trailing stops and will ride this move until I get bucked off. Other names I’m holding are: $ECA $WFT $OKE $BHGE $SLCA $WLL $OAS $VNOM $USO (calls) $XOP (calls) and $GUSH (day & swing trades).

  • Wolf: $BP Moving up 2% (52 wk high) with #Oil. Breaking above the upper BB. 5.25% Div Ex 5/10.
  • Wolf: $BP New 52 week high. XXL position.
  • Ajax4Hire: @Dan; You concluded the Monday nite(March 12) Strategy Session with: "...we are right up at resistance here, ...this is kinda at the end of a move,... so just try and get in the rhythm of the market and you will see right now if you are just looking at the rhythm of the market; you would be in a profit taking mode; not in a stock building mode." I did take profit yesterday on $BLUE, $CASA and $MU. Looking to close my $FB and $NFLX position this Friday. I was somewhat distressed as I am building back my 401k portfolio with: $AI, $BP, $DIS, $F, $OXLC, $RDS/A, $TWO Got Stops on most of these for protection. Much thanks for the advise.
  • DAN: @Ajax4Hire $BLUE $CASA $MU $FB $NFLX $AI $BP $DIS $F $OXLC $RDS $TWO Hey Ajax4Hire. Glad to hear it. There will be plenty of time to build positions in stocks. This just isn't one of them right now. ;-)

  • Ajax4Hire: @jan2138 $OXLC I have $OXLC in long term 401k for income; The snap-back today returned a smile to my face; was concerned that the high yield would be swallowed by the decline. Also have for High Yield/Income: $AI, $BP, $ETJ, $F, $GSK, $NRZ and $T. $BP at 7%/year; $F, $GSK and $T at just over 5% a year(when I bought). I am beginning to question $GSK and $T as they seem to feel more investment vs. dividend/income.
  • jan2138: @Ajax4Hire $OXLC $AI $BP $ETJ $F $GSK $NRZ $T 5% yields are attractive but not yieldhog territory. Good balance for the riskier tickers.
  • mopick: @jan2138 $OXLC $AI $BP $ETJ $F $GSK $NRZ $T, what is your feeling about $STWD? Loan portfolio has a floating rate tied to short-term interest rates so higher rates shouldn't pose a problem. Over 9% yield run by a very savvy CEO.
  • champ: $ERX ...this sector is still extremely strong ...and $BP came out and said this morning, that the Business Tax Reform Bill ...is extremely important for them NP.....but this is a great sector ....until it tops out.

  • Ajax4Hire: @Robert1965 $RDSA $RDS/A - Royal Dutch Shell and $BP - British Petroleum both have outstanding dividends(5.6% today); awesome for income generation. I had both but eventually settled on $BP as it has slightly higher dividend and let $RDS/A go, felt too over-weight oil, now I question my analysis.
  • Wolf: $RDSA $BP new 52 week highs. Long oversized positions in both. 5.8% Div is a bonus.

  • rah: @champ $USO #8-month #weekly #hurricanes #Hurricane - #OilPatch (my suggestion to keep oil posts in one place). Didn't want your post to feel unnoticed. I am only watching now. Friday's move did get my attention. I am fortunate I have a friend who trade /CL. Been listening to him go on for a few months. Just making an initial list, reworking old ones from a few years back. Checking web links to info sites. Looking at $DO, $HFC, $TUSK, $FANG, $CVI, $ALDW, $PBR, $PBRA, $EC, $BP, maybe a few more, but have only gotten through the refiners, Integrated and field services. rah

  • Bridget: Notes: $BHP $RIO - both have similar charts and are at important support point.

  • 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.

  • 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!)

  • 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.

Many energy derivatives getting punched in the face today ; quite a few to new lower levels; seems a bit overdone so far so fast but what do I know ; sentiment very bearish too; tow other notable bearish catalysts today in this sector ; threat of $BP divvy cut and DOJ messing with $HAL $BHI potential merger; the usual Sherman Anti-trust stuff https://finviz.com/futures_charts.ashx? t=CL&p=m5 https://finviz.com/map.ashx?t=sec_all

  • tnt: $PVA picking up shares after this 3 day steep pullback after talk of $BP $8 bid floated. Got to like the risk reward for a double from here
  • GreenGhost: $HAL $CVX $BP $SLB $EOG et al sector getting really sold off hard today ; check out sea of RED on heat map ; some nice shorts in there as these all roll over together; pretty bearish stuff and spot takes another leg down. 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. Spot power diving today on weekly release I suspect to 57 level. https://finviz.com/map.ashx?t=sec_all https://finviz.com/futures_charts.ashx?t=CL&p=h1

  • janner0814: Thanks ginny, as you know I read ALL of your posts. Darn...

  • GreenGhost: $Spot oil $USO ; looking for a reversal out of this one here; 52.5 was resistance today; got a wee little overshoot due to Saudi/Yemen geopolitical tensions I suspect. Look at $OIH, $BP, $XOM et al today; most all sold right out of the gate this morn ...
  • henrik511: $BP - setting up for a nice short RHRN. Looks like the top of the right shoulder is forming in a H&S formation. May be early, but look for confirmation aroung $38. 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
  • dkoran: $BP- Well, i got stopped out on my May 37 puts. I usually stay away from these oils but did not see the British Govt stepping in to prop them up.
  • GreenGhost: @janner0814 $TSO shows what I know ; just checked out refinery location map ; since they were my client they've traded their Gulf locations for some of $CVRs and $COPs former assets on left coast; no new refineries built since 1970s such just musical chairs among players; think that's the old $BP refinery is Washington. http://tsocorp.com/about-tesoro/locations/
  • dkoran: $BP- options action crowd was very bearish on fridays show on big oil and ability for them to meet dividend payouts. I shorted $BP today with May 37 Puts.
  • janner0814: @Lou: "...while I agree that the $BP chart was an excellent tool to illustrate what happens when the descent begins and accelerates, we all know that $LL is no $BP and doesn't have the assets and global reach to serve as a parachute to save it f ...
