Halliburton to Buy Baker Hughes for $34.6 Billion

 I was interested in this tiny article is because of  Dick Chaney. Remember he was involved in Halliburton?

I guess that’s putting it  mildly, huh?

From the article:

Halliburton Co (HAL.N), the world’s second-largest oilfield services provider….

From Yahoo Finance – Halliburton:

If you click on the link below and then on the names in blue you will find that these people had “options” to buy at a much lower price than what the stock was eventually sold for.  Making money hand over fist.

The Top investor is the “Vanguard Group”. On September 30, 2014 they held 44,575,126 shares. Wow.

 From Wikipedia:

Cheney was selected to be the Secretary of Defense during the Presidency of George H. W. Bush, holding the position for the majority of Bush’s term from 1989 to 1993. During his time in the Department of Defense, Cheney oversaw the 1991 Operation Desert Storm, among other actions. Out of office during the Clinton administration, Cheney was the Chairman and CEO of Halliburton Company from 1995 to 2000.
