Tremendous amount of option trading by insiders "100%". I suspect this is seen as an ominous sign. It has been ongoing for some time, not just last 2 weeks. This may not be ominous but it certainly implies they think they can't get more later at a higher price.
This is a very good company and a well-kept secret, it seems. I've bought and sold it, but on average have been accumulating. It's a considerable portion of my investments these days. I've been able to get some good pricing on what I hold.
TDW is tied to oil and oil prices, no doubt, but it also is tied more fundamentally to offshore rig and platform count. It is my view, that while oil will fluctuate in price, the need to go farther and farther offshore to find oil will be ever increasing, and will be an increasing share of the oil exploration pie.
These guys run a good operaton and manage their money well. I don't think you can wrong with this one. I wish the share price would stabalize, but that is a problem with Wall Street, not this company. Over time they will realize there is a constant and growing need for TDW's services and quit knee-jerking on every bit of oil news.
