    I lived in Washington State for 20 years and have lived in the Northeast Florida area on and off for 25 so I am somewhat familiar with the land Rayonier owns. The timberland in Washington is timberland and almost none of it is close enough to anything to be much else. A lot of it is on the West side of Olympic Peninsula, lots of trees and not many people. Forks is the only town, and it barely is one. RYN has some things in the works in Nassau County, Florida but it may be years before these commercial developments pay off.

    Seadrill: Lessons From The Frontline

    All of that is true, but I bought FRO at 11 and sold the last on the way down at 27. Most was sold in the 40s. Made some good money and sold because Fredriksen said when earnings came out one quarter that there was way too much capacity and that business would be lousy for 3 or 4 years. He did everything but tell shareholders to get out. I took him at his word. He has not done so with SDRL. FWIW, I think one year FRO paid out $16 in dividends. He is shareholder friendly. IMHO, SDRL is worth some investment here, but I would not put too much into it.

    I owned Frontline and made a good bit of money on it. Basically, I sold out when Fredriksen said business was going to be bad for quite a while. He was honest and right. He has been cautionary on Seadrill, but not nearly as dire is he was about Frontiline. Personally, I own a few shares of SDRL and put it on the DRIP. May buy some more at some point. Based on what he has said so far, I don't see SDRL becoming another disaster like FRO.
