  • Seadrill Shareholders Should Be Patient [View article]
    I see more positive reasons to hold Seadrill than negative ones. I have held quite a few O&G companies in downturns and profited when the price of oil recovered. I am considering adding another 1,000 shares of SDRL at $10.00 to $12.00 to the 1,000 shares I already own. However, do your own research.

  • Linn Energy Cuts Distributions, But I'm Not Selling - Why The Bottom May Be In [View article]
    I have read that the Saudi oil company wants to maintain market share. It is the reason that Saudi Arabia did not act to reduce production. Sorry but I do not have a link to the news article.

  • Linn Energy Cuts Distributions, But I'm Not Selling - Why The Bottom May Be In [View article]
    Has anyone read about the aims of ARAMCO and the effect the Saudi Arabia government will have on OPEC in regard to $20.00 oil? I do not own shares in LINE or LNCO but I do own shares in SDRL. I wonder, like other people, how low oil prices will go.

    Also, today Jan 6th, I see on yahoo.com, that oil futures prices are increasing out to 2017. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  • Update: My Reaction To Chimera Investment Corporation's Dividend Payment [View article]
    I disagree with you. The 10 year is 2.08 today, Jan 5th. Pundits say rates will not go over 3% until 2016.

    Go-4-it, I would be interested in how many shares you owned and what was your loss when you sold the seadrill shares.

    Usually, in these kinds of lawsuits, the lawyers win more than the shareholders. Also, not too many people predicted these low oil prices.

    Volatility in commodity prices is the problem here.

  • Update: Is Seadrill's West Polaris Purchase A Bullish Sign? [View article]
    I bought 1,000 shares of SDRL at about $24.00 per share. I didn't think that WTI oil would get to $50.00 per bbl. I didn't think that OPEC would not lower production. I don't know of any analysts who predicted these two events.

    There were a lot of investors who thought that Seadrill was a well run company and would be the best of the offshore drillers. I don't blame management. As these lawsuits play out, I would support management, in court, if it gets that far. All drillers are risky.

    I think Seadrill is a good risk/return at $11.00 to $12.00 per share. Who is predicting that oil will be at $60 to 65 per bbl in six months? What goes down may go up!

  • Canadian Oil Sands: Sorry, But We Told You To Stay Away [View article]
    Interesting article. Interesting bitumen comment.

    On Dec 13, 2014 WTI oil closed friday at $57.49. I saw the futures prices a few months ago too. The author was right on.

  • Seadrill: Where Do Analysts Stand On Seadrill After Its Dividend Suspension? [View article]
    I have seen companies like COP, MRO, ERF and PWE ( all in the oil and natural gas business ) going up and down 2,3,4,5 percent and more in the past few months. When I bought 1,000 shares of SDRL I did not think that oil would drop below $70 per bbl. I did my research using data from S&P and my broker. The fundamentals were good at the time.

    With the volatility in the oil sector, I am on the sidelines now and holding on to my SDRL shares.

  • Chimera Investment Corporation: Very Impressive [View article]
    I purchased some chimera stock at about @ $2.82 per share three or four years ago. I also added more shares on dips. A special dividend was declared and paid in JAN. 2013 that was a return of capital. I own 15,000 shares and I am pleased with the current management. I would recommend buying CIM. I am also long ARR.

    Thanks for the article.

  • Seadrill: Has The Massacre Finally Ended? [View article]
    tankerat, I have agreed with your comments and bought 1,000 shares of SDRL at about $24.00 per share. I had to sign in so I could complement you on your sense of humor. Thanks for the laugh.
