  1. Great purchase, AFFJ. Cant go wrong with CVX at these prices. I am tempted to average down on my cost basis. As we saw during the latest earnings call, dividends are a top priority for CVX. Hopefully they will continue to grow them and not lose their streak that they've built up.

    1. Thanks R2R. We couldn't resist the opportunity to average down our cost basis. Given the amount of free trades we have left before our 100 trades reset, we figure it was a good opportunity to put some capital to work for us.

      Thanks for stopping by. AFFJ

    1. Yes, I agree Adam. Some great values to be had out there. We made another buy today as well. Stay tuned for the Recent Buy post. We'll likely post it Saturday and we already have a post schedule for tomorrow morning.

      Best wishes! AFFJ

  3. Nice purchase AFFJ. Most of the energy names seem cheap right now. It's only a matter of time before oil goes up and I don't mind holding and collecting dividends until then.

    1. I agree AAI...trying to buy up large companies with a nice track record in this sector and wait for the rebound. Meanwhile, I have no problem sitting back and collecting the almost 5% dividends. :)

      Regards, AFFJ

  4. Awesome! I too just bought (on a much smaller scale!!) CVX. Been a long time fan of the stock, and always wanted to buy. Now I just have to remember I'm in it for the long haul, and not look at the volatility of the price. Hoping to keep adding shares while the price is low...

    Let's Grow!

    1. Saw your buy WD. Glad to hear you decided to become a fellow shareholder. We too plan to keep adding if prices remain in the 80s.

      Best wishes and continued success! AFFJ

  5. Nice purchase, AFFJ! I also like CVX and purchased it sometime back. But, its price keep going down. I've a feeling that there is more down slide remaining in energy companies in coming summer months, especially driving season is over. We will have better opportunities to buy energy companies at even lower prices. However, dividends are great even now. Keep racing!

    1. Race2Retirement - In this low cost oil environment, many companies are finding it difficult to maintain their profit margins. The struggle will likely continue at least until the end of the year as it is expected that this low cost oil environment will be with us at least until the new year. If prices continue to drop, we plan to continue averaging down. Although it may not reach previous highs, we do believe this sector will eventually bounce back.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. AFFJ
