D_steven...So much to tell...here is my short answer...! SFL should do good regardless of tanker rates because they always get their lease payments...income is not really based on shipping rates....! SFL also leases out drilling rigs which has strong color at this time, plus SFL has some other type ships that they lease out and etc. (read company profile on yahoo)...! SFL, FRO, SDRL and some other companies have the strong footprint of John Fredrisken aka "The Tanker Guy", shotcaller/major shareholder...he is a proven winner in this type of business...! My opinion, SDRL and SFL should both shine in 2011...!
Susan (aka trickywomen101, sid66 & etc.)...Susan, you are a very smart lady and I feel this is a "trick question"...! Yes, I was expecting a strong dip in SFL shares...but now I am not to sure...! I bet you are getting ready to tell me how to buy some naked puts...right...? Susan, I am a very sick puppy and I reserve the right to chance my mind at any time...! Please, don't get mad and start yelling at me...! Good luck to you...!
