    If you look at a 5 year chart, you will see that 2013 was the only year the dividend declared in December was paid in December. For the preceding three years, it was paid in January., the same as happening now in 2014.

    35 million divided by today's close of $14.02 comes out to 2,496,343 shares. The 90 day average daily volume has been 76,972 shares. So, at today's closing price, they would be purchasing the equivalent of 32 trading day worth of volume.

    Volume started rising last Friday and hit a peak today with over 35,000 shares traded at 9:36 AM. Some large holder or an institution wants out, I suspect. They are doing it in a sloppy manner. Perhaps they are very fearful and wanting to get out soon, have little choice other than to sell at panic prices. I doubt someone would short this stock with such low daily volume. Then again, this entire market has been absolutely paranoid. BDCs, REITS and high yield bond stocks are being hammered.

    As to interest rates, I have to question how the Fed could raise rates when the rest of the world is lowering them. We need to see growth in Europe and China as well as some sort of recovery in Russia. If no growth in those areas, then I foresee our economy following them into the toilet.

    What in the hell is going on here?

    Yesterday and again today, there were two major share dumps (today was over 35,000 shares at 9:36 AM). Whoever is dumping those shares is doing it in a manner that immediately drives down the price per share as this stock only has an average daily volume of under 77,000 shares. So, that is a huge shock. The question remains as to whether that trader knows something that we do not know.

    Huge Overreaction

    I am a long term investor, and I do not panic and sell just because of bad news coming out on a stock. There was a time when I would act in haste, sell a holding and then live to see it bounce back. That being said, after much consideration, I decided to sell my 800 shares this morning.

    For the past several months I have held on to it, not expecting the price of oil to continue its drop, while at the same time having comfort in the CEO advising the dividend was safe through 2015. OK, so I decided to ride it out and at the same time collect the dividend.

    Something is seriously wrong here. For the CEO to go back on his word and completely eliminate the dividend, say to me that SDRL has major financial concerns. On top of that OPEC and other oil states do not appear willing to cut production. That being the case, it would seem probable that oil will continue its slide which is one more reason why SDRL stopped the dividend. Maybe I am wrong but folks, I believe there is trouble in River City with a capital T.

    So, I will take my losses, lick my wounds and at least have the comfort of knowing that I have stopped the bleeding.

    Thanks. I purchased more VALE today. Why would you sell at the bottom? You will regret selling here, and I suspect you will begin to feel that regret in the very near future.
