    • Energysystems: Thurkildsen will stay on NADL's board, interested in that once it gets off the pink sheets.

    • ComputerBlue: Good find..definitely surprising to me. I'm looking for a nice drop to add to my position..will likely happen tomorrow.

    • Mercy Jimenez: Well jury is out for me; new CFO and now new CEO from 2 battered companies (FRO and Archer LB) will leave me on the sidelines for awhile.

    • neobliviscar: Hmm. That bites. I have a position in this.

    • Hillbilly Stock Star: I don't get it?

    • Mercy Jimenez: Guys the market didn't mind when the CFO left for RIG -- it may not mind CEO leaving either; suggest you wake up between 3am-7am ET tomorrow

    • sethmcs: SDRL is due for a pull back. If this doesn't do it nothing will.
      10/2/12
    • DAG Investments: Thanks for the heads up, Mercy. The damn IR alerts never work!
      10/2/12
    • DAG Investments: If the price reacts noticeably, I'm jumping on the chance to add. It might not dip at all since, to very many, only Fredriksen matters.
      10/2/12
    • Energysystems: Completely agree, Fredriksen is alpha/omega as far as SDRL is concerned(to me).
      10/2/12
    • sethmcs: Fredriksen is a financier. Who is going to operate in the harshest environments on earth?

    • Mercy Jimenez: DAG - FYI if U want real time alerts on SDRL sign up 4 email notice direct from Oslo Bors link above; it was 1st one out B4 Google Alerts.
      10/3/12
    • Mercy Jimenez: 5:30 am ET after >2 hours of trading Norwegians don't seem bothered by the CEO announcement --SDRL trading flattish/positive on light volume

    • dclutz47: Good info Mercy, thanks.

    • Mercy Jimenez: Seadrill plans to remain listed in Oslo: CFO http://reut.rs/VfEDK9
      10/3/12
    • DAG Investments: Thanks Mercy. I figured alerts directly from the company would be timely, but for some of the biggest companies, IR alerts don't work at all

    • neobliviscar: It was a good spot by MJ way before any other feed I had posted it. @MJ -not getting into OSUR. Co. could be run better & might be a buyout.
      10/3/12
    • Energysystems: Saw OSUR interview on that seinfeld caricatures' show. Very interesting.
      10/3/12
    • Mercy Jimenez: OK thanks Neo; Speed of feed on SDRL all due2 transparency and investor focus of Oslo Bors; they usually beat IR dept for Oslo listings
      10/3/12
    • neobliviscar: MJ: see your OSUR thread. Regarding SDRL: I can see this drifting to $38. I will avg in more shares & sell $40 calls. Added +1k at $39.10

    • Energysystems: neo-I think the pullback today has more to do with oil than with the moves at the top. Watching crude hopefully it'll go to 80 so I can add
      10/3/12
    • Energysystems: Not saying these moves didn't help in the pullback, but it does trade with crude. Looking to double up my shares in SDRL soon.
      10/3/12
    • DAG Investments: i agree with Energysystems -- the dip probably has more to do with oil than with the management changes. i'm looking to double down too.
      10/3/12
    • neobliviscar: @Energysys: I agree. Last oil dip, I bought tons of ESV & DO too early & sold too early. This time, buying SDRL & will roll OutofMoney Calls
