    • Yours is now the 4th different earnings figure I've encountered this morning. All in all, seems like no one knows how to interpret this report. Or someone does, and everyone else has their own spin on things..."backing things out" or as I like to call it, manipulating the numbers.

    • In your dreams. This is like selling your TV to pay the rent. I am not saying HERO is not a good buy at these prices but this quarter was definitely not a good one for them.

    • You are delusional. They had a gain on the sale of some old rigs - it's one of those one time things you see in almost every quarterly. Since their business is not selling rigs these sales do not reflect earnings from their principal business. Analysts want to compare earnings and revenues from your principal business.

      Expect another bad day unless they have something further to say in the conference call (Which would be totally out of character). It looks like were gonna gap down about 2% to 3% at the open.

      While management mentioned the Maersk new build in the summary, they remain mute on Triumph and Resilience. I don't expect they have anything meaningful to add at the conference call.

      This ship continues to take on water with no near term end in sight. How can you let someone get into you for $5 million and not know if they're going to pay you? These guys are amateurish in the way they conduct business in Africa.
