    1. Bryan, I saw your post with your buy and your comment of how alot of people loved BBL in the $50's but are quiet now in the mid $30's. Good commentary! Deep value/ contrarian investing takes some guts.

      cheers, AA

    1. Fab Savings, good stuff! I like BP also and it is at 6%. I am long BP also but have not added in a few months but will probaly add some sooner rather then later.

  3. Great buys at very good prices. Your "Note" gave me a good laugh. I like the positive spin.

    Keep it up!

    1. Trying to keep it positive with all the red we are seeing! If the dividends hold, these will be good buys when we look back in a few years.

      Keep up the fight!

  4. I added to those three last week as well. My bet is on BBL. Let's just hope the race doesn't change course from 7% to 3%. Unless of course they get to 3% because the prices double. :-)

    1. MDP, You would have made $ on your BBL bet. They hit 7% a few days ago!

  5. Nice additions with some pretty awesome current yield from each. These low prices are definitely bringing on some incredible yields.

    1. The current yields are making me a little nervous. If we start seeing dividend cuts, Im gonna be taking the pain train straight to the bar.

      cheers, AA

    1. Dont think we will see any raises anytime soon with alot of these names. CVX looks like it will soon be in the $80's on it's way to the $70's?

  7. AA,

    Nice work. Great additions over there, I see you taking advantage of the oil pull back, great!

    1. Yup, they hit 7% a few days ago. Cross fingers BBL is not at 3.5% this time next year and trading at $35.
