Outside forces seem to working against the companies I invest in, so a warning to others, shy away from the companies I'm holding.
I've had some sort of luck lately. While CC had linked a few things about the 'terrible' record from BP, all big-oil suffers from these events, maybe BP is marginally worse but not terribly so.
BP off-shore rig accident, Toyota gas pedal problem, what's next for my holdings? Soon they'll find contaminants in Coke cans, something bad in Pamper's, and cadmium in novelty glasses.
And here I thought it had everything to do with profitability and future earnings potential.
