Why I Love To Blog -- Reason #346 -- May 17, 2018

Size matters? The linked blog was posted just the other day. Take a look at the post.

Note the major oil company that is red; the other three, green.

Now, today, WTI hits $72 and the entire oil sector pretty much surges. EOG, OAS, CXV, PSX all moved nicely. EOG up almost $5/share.

But there was one oil company that actually declined today. Yes, XOM. Not much, but XOM was down about 14 cents, and is now trading under $82.

  • these huddled villages often stand at river crossing points and at the junctions of ancient trading and pack-horse routes through the fells
  • the Dales are known for their handsome, historic market towns such as Skipton, Askrigg, Masham, and Reeth (I've spend time all of these except Reeth)
