Depends on if your "playing" the market or "investing" in the market. BHP is fast becoming a big player in shale activity, bought CHK Fayettville Shale part last year, and the HK acerage in Eagle Ford is very promising. What they have here in North La (Haynesville Shale) is really what put HK on the map. Everyone knew it was just a matter of time before them to sell, especially after spinning off their gathering side to Kinder Morgan. I've always heard, sell into the buy and buy into the sell trend. But If I would of done that several times prior, man would I be in high cotton now. Wish I still had that 5000 shares of HK I had 5 years ago at 7.00
Oh well easy come easy go but I do know what goes up WILL come down! Good luck.
