  • Rig count slides for fourth straight week [View news story]
    It's a human flaw; and also why on the news you'll see 10 sad/bad pieces a news for every 1 good bit.

    We dwell on the bad most likely due to our own insecurities.

  • Estimating Seadrill's Forward Free Cash Flow - A Surprise For Investors [View article]
    I have really enjoyed reading your articles. Keep up the good work. I am heavy in $SDRL missed multiple opportunities to sell so it's something I watch closely.

    I won't put the nail in the coffin till mid next year though. If they do some more cutting of capex and costs they should be able to weather the low oil prices. Oil sub $60 for longer than 3 years is unthinkable but could happen in which case $SDRL will likely be the least of my worries.

  • Caterpillar cuts guidance, sets job cuts, falls 6% [View news story]
    Mining and energy are essentially in their own recession it seems. Coal Oil and Nat Gas all at rock bottom prices. CAT has to be suffering due to lower demand for the work force of these industries.

  • Seadrill cancels drill rig order [View news story]
    You are correct the shipyard should tell sdrl to pay up upon delivery and not let SDRL push out the deliveries.

    This is obviously somewhat emotional for you and it really shouldn't be. SDRL is trying to survive that's all. The shipyards that accepted delaying deliveries did it because it made business sense for them to do so... just like this makes sense for SDRL's business.

    Its not all crooks and cronies as you paint it out to be. This happens in a lot of industries.

  • Microsoft strikes Surface deals with Dell/HP; Adallom purchase confirmed [View news story]
    Idk... I work for a $70 billion dollar company and they still use POS sub $200 HP laptops and work stations... and they aren't feeling any pressure to upgrade/update despite the low productivity of these machines. Windows 7 with windows 2007 office (unless your a VIP).

  • Oil continues surge; gold on the move as well [View news story]
    no dog in this fight PP just wonder why someone who claims to have made a fortune is risking it trying to make another fortune?

    Or is there no number that is enough? Trying to analyze the psychology of wealthy people who have trouble saying "I have enough". Any insights to your thought process would be appreciated.
