The oil crisises used to repeat every decade, yet we are winding down on the second one in the last three years. With that in mind, I have a watch for CLB to drop back to the post crisis $40 range and hopefully profit the next time I can’t afford to drive to the gas station.

I bought some at a good price awhile back and am satisfied with my current profit. The question is, should I sell and invest elsewhere or hang on expecting them to pop from some new market penetration?

Is it Time to Load Up on GE?

Buffett loaded up at the peak of the melt down, and I dipped in a bit then, too. Thus Warren is still much wealthier than I am.

While the current financial slide is much more gradual than the one that wiped me out last time, it is sliding, evidenced by my watch program prompting me on stocks that dropped less than 1% on Monday and  hitting my low watch points which are generally 5-20% down when I set them.

Still making my mind up on this one. Today askStockGuru has the buy point at $18.43 and I had set a limit buy back in March of $18, with my original shares picked up at $12.80.

4.9% yield and a recent pull-back has this one high on my dividend watch list. Unfortunately it doesn’t qualify for any IRA type accounts so I need it to go lower to put in my ready-funds account.

And do I sometimes really stretch for headlines? Well, the latter is a no-questions affirmative. The former? Well, I bought one hotel stock where I stay all the time, and another that I think is simply under valued. Hopefully both will be profitable in the long run. That will allow me to enjoy the interesting part.

Would You Like Dividends With That?

Yes, I would, but even without a dividend, Arcos Dorados Holdings Inc. Cla (ARCO) looks promising for a long-term profit. Thanks to this article for bringing it to my attention.

A SmallCapInvestor.com article caught my eye today. I could swear I had looked at VFC before, but couldn’t find a CLI reference to it, so I’m making one now. The company is still trading with much volatility, and I think the entry point will be on a major pull-back, providing the management and numbers are still strong.
