Big Oil is Back

By Roger S. Conrad on Oct. 1, 2018
I became a shareholder of Chevron Corp (NYSE: CVX) when it acquired the former Texaco, which I believe was the first stock I ever bought. I was fresh out of business school and made an investment in Texaco’s dividend reinvestment plan, and I’m happy to report that I literally make more in dividends every year than my original investment. I expect to pass the whole thing on to my kids, hopefully many years from now with the account at a much higher level.
