  • Ocean Rig Shareholders Get The Shaft (Again) [View article]
    orig stole those shares back from Drys. Only 2 months prior they did a secondary offering at 7 and bought pretty much the entire offering back at a huge discount. The book value now rises and future profits will increase when the drilling industry recovers. Cutting the dividend needed to save 100 million plus a year for debt service costs.

  • Offshore drillers still not an attractive value proposition, analyst says [View news story]
    you can't time the bottom but long term some of these drillers are screaming buys. older rigs are being scrapped and new rigs deliveries are being pushed out

  • Offshore drillers still not an attractive value proposition, analyst says [View news story]
    ORIG is the best positioned offshore driller and gets hammered every time more than the competitors with an old fleet and rigs not under contract.

    ORIG has the best coverage for 15 and 16 and the newest fleet along with PACD. I love their juicy divy that is currently covered with cash flow. If the industry sucks through 16 then they will have to cut the divy. My only concern is that they wont be able to get debt funding for their remaining rigs on order.

  • DryShips: What's Happening Here? [View article]
    You must not be that educated in the Oil Service markets because ORIG has Long Term contracts with the majors for 87 percent of their fleet in 2015. I expect them to be 100 percent in operation by the next earnings report and to earn 2.50 a share minimum next year. This down market is actually really great for ORIG because the competitors all have drillships much older and will have to scrap them at 55 dollar oil. Day rates for ORIG ships are holding up fairly well
