Google Down, Apple Up, BP Plugs

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Financial,Google     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

After missing the expected earnings and profits numbers, Google's shares are down 4% in after-hours trading. Apple's shares however are up by 1% in reverse sympathy. Google Android is beginning to look like a real contender for Apple's ubiquitous iPhone, so the companies are now regarded as serious rivals. Bad news for one parlays into — Continue reading ยป

Evangelist Exonerates BP

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Religion     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

So apparently the oil rig explosion and the subsequent oil leak wasn't BP's fault at all. According to the evangelist, Hal Lindsey, god did that to avenge the softening of US support for Israel. Guess that clears everything up for BP. Even better, BP should use that fact as it defends itself against the mountain — Continue reading ยป

Sympathy for BP

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Environment,Law     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Is it just me or does the BP boss, Tony Hayward, has one of those faces you feel sorry for? I know, no compassion for BP, but watching the man squirm before the congressional hearing today, I almost felt bad for him. Ok, enough sympathy. Now let's get that Gulf gusher plugged, shall we?   — Continue reading ยป

Just happened to see this ad on YouTube. Don't get it. I wasn't BP's friend before, why would I want to be their friend now? What's next, friending Bin Laden and Kim Jong-il?        — Continue reading ยป

For me it sums up how reckless and callous oil companies are and how ridiculous the "drill baby drill" people sounded. You figure — Continue reading ยป

BP Dividends in Jeopardy

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Financial     # , , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

As stated in my previous post, that 9.2% BP dividend yield was just wishful thinking. Now comes the word that lawmakers want BP to suspend any dividend payments because obviously the company has gotten one hell of a liability to deal with and paying the shareholders instead of the victims isn't going to sit well — Continue reading ยป

BP's Nightmare

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Environment     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

There seems to be no end in sight for BP's plight. The oil well is still gushing, the stock is bleeding, and there's word of a criminal investigation. BP's stock got hammered today to the tune of $20 billion. It also doesn't help that BP is a European company and Europe is still grappling with — Continue reading ยป
