When Fadel Gheit of Oppenheimer & Co. was quoted as saying "It's an excellent deal, a fantastic deal," he was referring to:
1.) The fact that you bought lots and lots of energy stocks in 2004 and 2005.
2.) The Tom Cruise / Katie Holmes hookup, of which he is a huge fan.
3.) ConocoPhillips purchase of Burlington Resources.
P.S. More mergers to come?
