    You provide more information in your comment than the author does in his entire article.

    Derrick-

    You are exactly correct. The author claims to provide "detailed" company analyses, but falls way short of the mark.

    Rosneft has recently made a major discovery in the Arctic Ocean, of which NADL was an integral part.

    Every day, readers are bombarded with articles on SDRL, NADL and other deep water drillers. The simple reason is that they are good for page views.

  • These Income Stocks Can Be Bought Below Book Value And Pay 10%-13% Yields [View article]
    You neglected to mention that PSEC's earnings have not covered the dividend for more than four straight quarters. This is the reason the stock has taken a hit, and it is NOT a good buy until the dividend gets covered.

    As I have noted in the above posts, this is certainly NOT the only criteria needed.

    Remember, these are only two criteria - there are several others to use when evaluating CEF's.

  • CEF Strategies: The PIMCO CEFs - Opportunity Or Warning Shot? [View article]
    The only Pimco CEF that I follow is PCI. It is on my watchlist to buy. One of my "buy" criteria for CEF's is when the Current Discount is lower than both the 52 Week Average and the 52 Week Low as shown on cefconnect. The latter is a rare occurrance; however, last Friday PCI hit both (actually it is still .03 away from the 52 Week Low). So, I am getting ready to pull the trigger on this one.

    By the way, I bought RFI this morning as both of these criteria were met.

  • Seadrill: What Would Lord Palmerston Do? [View article]
    Is anyone else getting sick of all the SDRL articles? They all say about the same, with a little different spin.

    But, on the plus side it is good for PV's.

  • This Transaction Might Stop The Fall In Seadrill [View article]
    According to Fredriksen, the dividend is safe into 2016, not just the coming 12 months.

    Looking at the pre-market, it doesn't appear his purchase is having any effect.

    This will give us a chance to add to SDRL holdings.
