Four Parts To Phillips:
We purchased the stock at this time because oil is priced at a historic low. The increased tensions that exist around the distribution of oil and gas products (such as, Iraq, Libya, Russia, and "The War On Terrorists") also make it interesting… not to mention, the merger mania could help a company like Phillips.
