Yup! That is going to impact STD (see how it is up today already 1.5%...).
It is very easy to make catastrophic analysis on future events. Nobody has a crystal ball...
FACTS and common sense clearly indicate that STD is a good company, with a strong record and better management (currently oversold and undervalued). FACTS: Profits and growth are REAL and available to anybody willing to read company filings.
My opinion is that based on what I see, STD is a real good company to invest.
Profits, yield, growth, etc. will continue next quarter and in the future - unless there is A MATERIAL CHANGE - (which I am not aware).
STD has been suffering from continuous attacks form paid bashers and short sellers trying to find an excuse to scare investors.
All negativity we hear is pure speculation.
FACTS (Results) will continue driving my decision to invest or not. Only if these FACTS change, I will be changing my view on STD.
