    Anadarko Petroleum Corp. said it has agreed to buy Kerr-McGee Corp. and Western Gas Resources, Inc. in separate, all-cash deals totaling $21.1 billion, plus the assumption of $2.2 billion in debt.

    "We are creating a combined company with industry-leading positions in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico and the Rockies, two of the fastest-growing oil and natural gas producing regions in North America," said Jim Hackett, president and chief executive of Houston-based Anadarko.

    Anadarko will pay $16.4 billion, or $70.50 a share, for Kerr-McGee, of Oklahoma City, plus the assumption of about $1.6 billion in debt.

    Anadarko will pay $4.7 billion, or $61 a share, for Western Gas, plus the assumption of $600 million in debt.

    Anadarko will finance the acquisitions with a $24 billion, 364-day committed acquisition facility provided by UBS, Credit Suisse and Citigroup. Anadarko plans to use proceeds from asset sales, free cash flow from operations and the issuance of equity to reduce debt over the next 18 to 24 months.

    "Consistency requires you to be as ignorant today as you were a year ago."

    -- Bernard Berenson

    Many market participants become frustrated and unhappy in poor market environments because they have unreasonable expectations about how they should profit from the market. Ideally it would be nice to extract regular and steady gains from the market. After all, we are putting in the same amount of effort, if not more, than we do in better market environments so why shouldn't we collect a "paycheck" of similar size at this time?
      
     
    If you are looking for a steady paycheck that correlates directly with the amount of effort you put forth, the stock market is not place to find it. The vast majority of traders earn their profits in a very choppy manner. It is very easy to go weeks or months with little or nothing to show for it, but then see a large amount of gains come in a very short time.

    I would guess that most traders reap more than 80% of their profits in less than 20% of the time. If that is the case, why don't we just go play golf or hang out on the beach during those times when the market isn't going to give us much? Why waste our time paying attention to the market when conditions are poor and profits will be tough to find?

    The problem is that in many cases we simply don't know when the big profit-making opportunities will come. To capitalize on them generally requires proper planning and positioning during the poor times. We need to stay in touch with the pulse of the market so that we can move fast and decisively when the time is right. It is unrealistic to think that we can divorce ourselves completely from the market and then pop back in at exactly the right time to enjoy big gains. The market requires that we honor it constantly by paying attention to it even when it isn't in the mood to reward us.

    We are in one of those times right now. However, we are in the process of setting the stage for some more dramatic action in the next week or so as we hear from the Fed and earnings start to roll out. Now is the time to plot our strategy and to identify those stocks that will pay off when times are better

    We have a quiet start to a summer Friday and it is likely to stay that way. A merger in the oil and gas sector is receiving some attention but other than that there isn't a lot of news flow. Overseas markets are mixed and gold and oil are trading down.

  • Huvitavad sündmused on arenemas ka valuutaturul, nimelt üritab dollar euroo vastu läbi murda 1,25 eur/usd tasemest. Kui aktsiaturgudel reedeseid läbimurdeid väga ei arvestata, siis valuutaturgudel kasutatakse pigem tavapärasest õhemat turgu ära ning suuremad liikumised ei ole reedel üllatuslikud.
