Hi healthpicker,

Thanks for dropping by and your comments. There could very well be upside to this, especially with the purchase of Plains (and as you mentioned, BHP has done decently enough). Only time will tell, but I was certainly disappointed by this move. If I wanted (another) oil drilling company in this portfolio (I already have Transocean), I would have picked something else. :-)
