Note: this is, hands down, one of the most boring things I to do each quarter. I doubt anyone really looks at it but the day I quit doing this will be the day I miss posting something important. The word "important" is used loosely. Very loosely.
This is so boring that I actually didn't record a thing for 1Q20, one year ago. LOL.
This is linked at the top of the sidebar at the right during earnings season. After earnings -- pretty much after PXD and Apple posts their earnings -- this post will move back into obscurity.

A lot of anticipation and excitement over this quarter's earnings reports. We're starting to come out of the global pandemic; the lockdowns began in March, 2020, about a year ago. The stock market has had an incredible run since the presidential election about nine months ago.
Most interesting: the oil companies.

COP: August 3, 2021, conference call. From Motley Fool, July 1, 2021:
Oil giant ConocoPhillips recently unveiled its 10-year plan. The key takeaway is that the company expects to produce a massive amount of cash over the coming decade, even if oil prices decline, while returning a significant portion of that money to shareholders. ConocoPhillips has worked hard over the years to reduce costs.
At $50 oil, ConocoPhillips could generate $70 billion of free cash flow over the next 10 years after investing enough money to maintain its production rate and enhance its returns. To put that into perspective, ConocoPhillips' current market capitalization is less than $82 billion.
