  1. What will the Trump organization cut be for sending more troops to protect THE OIL.

  2. What will Trump’s under the table cut be for sending more troops to protect THE OIL. You know quid pro quo

  3. I have a question for you to consider addressing in the coming days. It seems to me oil is not the only item where the price is determined by supply and demand. Don’t stocks fall into that category too? I can’t get a quick, accurate number for the total market cap of all stocks worldwide, but $100 trillion is in the neighborhood. This IPO will add 1.5-2% to the supply. That seems like a large addition. Are we to assume the buyers have money on the sidelines, or will they be selling current holdings? (Obviously, both. But what %?). As you say, we don’t know how many shares will be offered. But eventually current shareholders can sell. Where will the invested money go? To the company or selling shareholders. If to selling shareholders, should we assume that money will go back into other stocks? Or elsewhere, like gold or real estate or wine? And how will active and passive funds handle this situation? Will passive energy funds sell other oil stocks to make room for this one? Will managers maintain energy exposure, or expand it?
    We just haven’t seen an IPO this big. Even if the number of shares sold on IPO isn’t overwhelming, should we be thinking about all the other shares that come to market later? Is this big enough to impact the entire market, or is the global stock market so large that this IPO won’t even be a hiccup? Thanks
