  • "If you're a long-term shareholder with a timeline farther out, I'm not sure that selling right now makes sense. While it's clear that the market hates the move, management is making some hard decisions that are probably in the best interest of the business for the long term.

    The stock could go lower, but this might be a great buying opportunity. Seadrill is still the clear leader in the industry with the most capable and newest fleet. There's a lot of short-term uncertainty in its industry, but there's also a lot of long-term upside, and Seadrill is probably a less risky investment, going forward, with these moves. "

    Trying to see a Silver Lining in a Dark Day.

  • 'Revenue rose 0.8% to $1.29 billion, above views for $1.23 billion.' - So SDRL is still making a hefty profit. The Suspension of the Dividend means that SDRL will immedietely retire 2 Billion off its 13 Billion Debt. The Dividend was suspended, not discontinued. That means it will eventually come back - perhaps in 2016 when all Oil and Energy analysts predict an Oil Price turnaround. I am probably grasping at straws. But, at any rate, SDRL is a Long-Term Hold. I just would not sell at the Bottom.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • SDRL has a PE of 2.42 which is phenomenal. Dividend is now up to 19 % ! All Oil and
    Energy Forecasts are for Oil to make a rebound in 2016. After all, it is a non-renewable
    resource. Since I will be holding onto SDRL at least through 2020, I believe my strategy
    of holding onto my Shares as they precipitously dropped, is the correct strategy. But, with
    Shares between 21 and 22 dollars and with Day Traders constantly selling into any rally,
    this is an opportunity for flexible and insightful Investors. Simply add SDRL shares every
    time you collect a Dividend. You're getting them cheap, with a Super-High Divy. In fact,
    it would be in your best interest for SDRL Shares to hover around 22 dollars a share for a
    couple of years. Your future self in the year 2020 will thank you as you add cheap shares
    at an exponential rate. I'm afraid that Investors who panicked and sold are like the
    Northeners who wanted to throw in the Towel after the battles of Bull Run, Antietam and
    Fredericksburg.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Is it possible that Oil Prices are are being manipulated to as low a price as possible in order to:

    1) Drive the Shale / Oil & Tar Sands people out of business
    2) Punish Putin
    3) Make a killing in the Oil Market once Prices start going back up.

    I suspect there is more to this than meets the eye. Perhaps only the Billionaires behind the
    scene know what is going on.

    Stick With Seadrill, Atwood for 2016 Recovery: Morgan Stanley

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • SDRL Stock UP by 1.34 and then later DOWN by .34. All Day Traders are conditioned right now to buy SDRL in the morning and then sell any Pop in the Stock. But this pattern usually lasts less than a Month in any Stock before it runs out of steam. The bottom line is that SDRL is continuing its long slow steady climb back from the depths. Today it still closed in the Green.

    Its obvious that the bottom for SDRL is around 22. Insightful Investors who buy now will
    be drinking Margaritas on a Caribbean Beach in 2020.

    If they cut the Dividend in 2016 or 2017 it will still be a great Dividend and the
    Balance Sheet will be much more on the Positive Side. Basically, if you're
    holding onto SDRL until 2020 or even 2030 - who cares what the price is in
    2014. Strong Buy now my friends.

    SeaDrill is set to report its third quarter earnings on November 28 with analysts expecting earnings of 69 cents per share on revenue of $1.2 billion.

    TheStreet Ratings team rates SEADRILL LTD as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

    "We rate SEADRILL LTD (SDRL) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."

    If you can read between the Lines - SDRL has genuine Revenue of about 5 Billion Dollars a Year. They are making a great Profit. but because of sub-par-growth (GROWTH) their Stock Price has been hit.

    Oil demand to 'rise tentatively' in 2015: IEA
    "Oil prices might have taken a tumble over the summer but demand is set to make a modest recovery in 2015 as the global economy improves, says the International Energy Agency (IEA)."
    "
    Oil prices have seen dramatic declines in the last few months, with the price for Brent crude hitting a two-year low of $88.55 a barrel this week, on the back of an abundant supply and slowing orders in the U.S., China and Europe. However, the IEA believes that demand growth "may have touched bottom" and should steadily improve.

    "Projections of oil demand growth for 2014‐15 have been reduced, but growth is still expected to gain momentum. Recent data suggest that may already have started to happen," the IEA said in its monthly report on Tuesday. It added that record‐high refinery throughputs in August and improved margins worldwide suggest demand is perhaps not currently "as dismal as it might appear."

    You will have to read the entire artice. Also of interest: http://www.cnbc.com/id/102075519
    "DON'T PANIC OVER OIL - T.BOONE PICKENS"
    "Let's don't panic here ... that the energy boom is over and everything's gone to pot because I don't think for a minute that's what's going to happen," Pickens said in an interview with CNBC's "Street Signs."

    I would also suggest reading that entire article.

  • The bottom has been reached. But in a Volatile Market - Day Traders rule supreme. Whenever SDRL goes up by a large amount, the Day Traders immedietely step in and sell. This may go on for awhile until the volatility cycle loses steam. But long-term (5 Years or more), You're looking at a 40 to 50 dollar Price Range for this Company, maybe more. Even if the Dividend is cut to help manage the debt better, if you buy at todays prices you will be making out like a bandit.

    For the last 30 or so days, whenever there was a slight surge in the Stock, many day-traders immedietely sold. Now, whenever SDRL stock just slightly drops - everyone gets back in to buy. How much more of a sign do you need that the bottom was reached last week.

    Your assesement is esecially true if you have a Time Horizon to 2020. I plan on holding SDRL to 2050 and passng on my SDRL Shares to my unwashed undeserving Heirs. Inbeween now and 2050 when SDRL will hit 200 Dollars a Shares, I'll be collecing a great Dividend. (Unless Pons & Fleishman were correct and Cold Fusion becomes a reality)

    From Motely Fool Today, just as I always thought - http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/09/30/why-im-buying-more-seadrill-ltd-stock.aspx - too good to be true.

    Excerpts from a Motley Fool Report today on Seadrill:

    "Seadrill has many options available"

    "The corporate structure gives Seadrill many options to raise cash fairly quickly. It can push assets down to subsidiaries, sell shares in subsidiaries on the public market, and it's generating positive cash flow each quarter if you don't include the dividend."

    "As long as dayrates stay high, debt markets remain open, and Seadrill's subsidiaries are able to act as a piggy bank Seadrill should be able to pay all of its bills."

    "Don't forget that its founder and largest shareholder John Fredriksen also just bought about $56 million in the company's stock, increasing an already massive bet on Seadrill. I, for one, think he knows the company has a lot of funding options for the future, and the MLP cookie jar is just one of them that will come in handy if the next few years are rough for the offshore drilling market."

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Certainly Las Vegas Sands is not Seadrill. But I remember that in 2009 LVS
    Shares went down to 1.50 a Share because LVS was Billions in Debt and
    everyone was downgrading anything to do with Las Vegas and Casino's.
    Despite being Billions in Debt, Sheldon Adelson expanded to Maccau and
    LVS Shares eventually reached over 80 Dollars a Share (currently around 61).
    John Fredrikson, despite SDRL being Billions in Debt built new State-Of-The-Art
    Deep Sea Rigs. Apparently the Panic still has to run its course for SDRL. But with
    John Fredriksen at the Helm, SDRL, like LVS is going to come roaring back.
    People have never stopped gambling and they have never stopped useing Oil.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • To those who bought Shares around 28 or 29 you have my congratulations !
    If you can hold onto your Shares to 2020 you will not only collect a Great Dividend
    (even if it is cut) - but you will double your Profit, possibly selling at 60 or 62.
