  • Seadrill: Perspective From Russia [View article]
    You are still talking :

    a) about the country where the author may have penned the article;
    b) about me and my investment position

    when the subject is "sanctions from Russia's perspective".

    Everybody here is aware of that.

    You may continue the show like a country lawyer, but it is no US court here, and the people in this thread know what is relevant to the topic and what is not.

  • Seadrill: Perspective From Russia [View article]
    "View from Russia"?
    Who are you trying to fool by making up stuff, sixshot?

    What I wrote is "sanctions from Russian perspective".
    You don't know the difference between "Russian perspective" and "From Russia with love"? Ask "Dear Abby" on that Canadian newspaper.

    The author tells us how he sees it from Russia's perspective, using his interpretation of the Russian budget. Then you tell us "But the author wrote it in the USA". So what? He could be writing from anywhere on earth, or he could be a non-Russian. So what?

    As for "history of my posts on this subject", I am sorry to inform you that those, too, are not the subject of this thread. I read the article and thanked the author for having written it, but I did not express my opinion on the subject "future of sanctions from a Russian perspective". YOU, on the other hand, voiced YOUR opinion on sanctions, more sanctions, more US, more Europe, more Canada.

    Stay on the subject, or grow up, or both.

    Madame,

    I am shocked to hear that I made an error. I am willing to correct it right now.
    But, I need to hear from you first where the error was, madame, in my earlier posts:

    - that your latest position in SDRL was 100 shares?
    - that you lost sleep over it while you held those 100 stocks?
    - that you sold them during a large spike between end-May and your post yesterday?
    - that you are a day trader?

    Kindly tell me which one(s) above is not true. I will come back with the correction.

    Respectfully yours, Madame.

    n.b: Your profile (below) reads "Day trader", "analyst", confirming that there was no error there on my part.

    No,sixhot!
    The topic was NOT the likelihood of the sanctions being lifted soon.

    The subject was " how the future of sanctions look from Russian perspective".
    The author gave us a feel on that, from Russia's perspective, based on his reading of a number of elements in Russia, mainly the national budget.
    Whether you agree with his article or not, it was about "the future of sanctions from Russian perspective"

    The fact that you got the topic wrong and contributed with "further US and EU plans in the Canadian press for sanctions" was unfortunate.

    The fact that you turned it into propaganda and personal attacks is laughable.

    Thank you, too, sixshot, for giving us the Russian perspective from Canadian press, with emphasis on the US and EU plans. I am sure that the Canadian press is a great source of information on how Russia thinks and plans about the sanctions on Russia.

    Chère madame,

    Why this overly sensitive reaction?
    My previous note was no more than a humble note of congratulations.

    And why are you being so modest, madame? You are the only day trader who holds (held) 100 shares of a company, held them for a considerable time, and lost sleep over it. You are unique in the universe of day traders.

    Please accept my best regards, madame.

    Cordialement.

    Madame,

    In April you held 100 ( one hundred) stocks in SDRL.

    In late May you stated to be looking for a "large spike" to sell them all.

    It is understood from your post today that "a large spike" in share price came your way between May 28 and now, resulting in your selling all the 100 (hundred) shares that you had.

    Well done, madame. FĂ©licitations!

    Technical glitch! The e-mail that you received is from the year 2008, announcing a contract extension until 2010.

    "........ now that the daughter has taken over". True!

    "The head of SAN UK, a success story, has taken over". Equally true!

    Discl.: SAN is by far and large the no.1 position in my portfolio.
    Discl.: I second Strike's recommendation (above) over VincentCh's blog; a must for every SAN investor who wants to be up to date with SAN-related news reports and information, two things that are not always the same.

  • North Atlantic Drilling: But What If The Rosneft Contract Is Executed? [View article]
    First ones to hurt are the companies with businesses in / exports to Russia.
    Then hurt the countries linked to the companies that suffer losses due to sanctions.
    Then hurt the individuals through worsening employment conditions or increasing energy bills.
    Then the pain becomes too much.
    Then, well, then we go back to square number-1, i.e., no sanctions, free trade, global economic cooperation, bail outs, more central bank support, more family photos at political summits, love and kisses, etc.

    We are at the stage number-2 now, where countries that are feeling the pressure are looking for "sanctions without sanctions". Otherwise -------> Move to stage-3.

  • Seadrill: Investment Thesis Review [View article]
    Speaking of insiders, JF bought / added 2,000,000 shares in SDRL on 22 September, for which
    he must be grateful to the market and to the financial media (pun intended).

    That is an extra $8,000,000 that he will collect in dividends at a handsome yield, ....... unless of course, the Board will cut the dividend but JF doesn't know about it.

    Saratogahawk,

    Very good to have you back!

    My NADL play is based :
    - on O&G fundamentals, as YOU have been outlining so well over and over again;
    - on my assumptions that the sanctions will be short-lived; Russia and NADL are inter-dependant; and, one more which I will not explain here today.
