The future is unknowable. We have good intentions but all of our projections and estimates will be wrong, and could be materially wrong. Wildcat exploration is expensive, speculative and potentially dangerous. An offshore spill or explosion would be enormously expensive. We have insurance but it may not be enough. You could lose your entire investment. Don’t be lazy – read our 10-Q’s, 10-K’s and press releases, and if you lose money – please no tears.

“Don’t forget about risk-free T-bills in your portfolio…After inflation and taxes you’ll likely only lose 5-10% of your investment.”

Haven't seen you around much lately ElCid, or maybe I just missed your posts.

I find it interesting how much our "graphs" resemble each others, even though we pick completely different stocks.

I remember the first time I read a stock prospectus and came to the disclaimer; my first thought was why anyone would even want to consider investing in this company. Later I came to realize that the wording was simply SOP to head off potential lawsuits from investors who lost money.

I also find it interesting that BAC is being sued by some investors claiming they were missled about the purchase of ML. I guess it's a case of opportunistic lawyers "banging" on BAC while everyone else is, hoping for a settlement and a big payday.

Now if you could sue someone for being stupid, they would have a case in regards to the purchase of Country Wide.

Looks like you are doing great in the market.

Hope it continues for you.
