I risultati del secondo quarto 2005 per l’industria del petrolio vengono annunciati questa settimana, e le previsioni sono, manco a dirlo, mirabolanti:
“BP estimated to see its profits balloon to $5.6 billion, up 44% year on year. Newly merged Royal Dutch Shell is expected to trump that, up 46% at $5.4 billion.
Exxon-Mobil and Chevron report on Thursday and Friday. Their share dividends are forecast to jump from 87 cents per share to $1.27 and from $1.53 to $1.69, respectively.”
