    • Baker Hughes (BHI -10.2%) CEO Martin Craighead says during this morning's earnings conference call that oil prices below $75/bbl for a few months may cause energy companies to pull back spending on exploration and production.
    • But BHI customers don’t believe oil prices will stay low, the CEO says, adding that “the returns are still quite attractive... right now, it’s full steam ahead.”
    • Craighead says BHI is on pace to deliver solid results in Q4, deepwater projects are moving forward, and customers spending should remain stable.
    • T. Boone Pickens, among others, have said $80 U.S. oil for a quarter would cause E&P companies to reassess; West Texas crude fell below $80 this morning for the first time since June 2012, and now trades at ~$81.
    • Schlumberger (SLB -0.6%), the no. 1 supplier of oilfield services, is scheduled to release quarterly results after today's close.
    • Earlier: Baker Hughes misses estimates on weaker Gulf of Mexico drilling activity.

TWTI Description
"The RBS Oil Trendpilot™ Exchange Traded Notes (RBS ETNs) are unsecured and senior obligations of The Royal Bank of Scotland plc (RBS plc), and are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (RBS Group). Any payments on the RBS ETNs when they become due at maturity or upon early repurchase or redemption are dependent on the ability of RBS plc and RBS Group to pay, and are also subject to market risk. The return on the RBS ETNs will be based on the performance of the RBS Oil Trendpilot™ Index (USD) (the “Index”), which utilizes a systematic trend-following strategy to provide exposure to either the RBS 12-Month Oil Total Return Index (USD) (the “Benchmark Index”, described below) or the yield on a hypothetical notional investment in 3-month U.S. Treasury bills as of the most recent weekly auction (the “Cash Rate”), depending on the relative performance of the Benchmark Index on a simple historical moving average basis."
