    Their are the 5 billionaire oil stocks, PVA is one and TLM is another but TLM is to big of a company to buy out, they will sell assets and the stock is a double, just ask Carl Icahn LOL,but it seems to be a safe bet for long term hold, 5) Talisman Energy (TLM): Billionaire Carl Icahn owns almost 6% of Talisman. Icahn’s significant energy bets this year have been the weakest spot in his portfolio, as Talisman, Transocean and Chesapeake (CHK) have tumbled. Talisman recently announced that their goal in 2015 was to sell at least $2 billion worth of their energy assets. Meanwhile, on Thursday, its shares plunged 12% and hit 52-week lows just above $4.The consensus analyst price target for shares is $9.36, which would be more than a 100% gain from where the stock is trading now.

    I saw that with BP and now they are whining to the courts to lower it, hehehehe

  • TLM is your next oil company that is a possible takeover, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Canadian oil producer Talisman Energy Inc said it has been approached by a number of parties, including Spain's Repsol SA, for various transactions.

    Talisman said there is no assurance that any transaction will be agreed and that it does not intend to make any further comment on the matter now.

    Bloomberg reported on Monday that Repsol and Talisman have revived talks and are in the process of discussing options that could include sale of a selection of assets or the entire company.

    Here is part of DRYS quarterly report and with a report like that a selloff doesn't make sense, For the third quarter of 2014, the dry bulk carrier segment’s net voyage revenues, which are calculated as voyage revenues minus voyage expenses, amounted to $38.5 million. In comparison, the segment’s net voyage revenues were $37.4 million in the same quarter a year ago. The tanker segment’s net voyage revenues amounted to $19.2 million compared to $14.5 million for the same period in 2013.

    A significant contribution came from the offshore drilling segment, where revenues from drilling contracts increased by $187.0 million to $515.5 million on a year-over-year basis.

    During the third quarter, the company had 828 calendar days and zero days spent on mobilization. This means 828 available drilling days out of which 817 were revenue-earning days. In other words, the company reported 99% operating efficiency.


    Total vessels, drilling rigs, and drill ships operating expenses for 3Q 2014 increased to $226.3 million, up from $155.6 million in the same quarter a year ago. Total depreciation and amortization increased to $113.6 million, up from $92.4 million in the same quarter a year ago.

    Petrobras awarded Ocean Rig extensions on its drilling contracts involving the Ocean Rig Corcovado and the Ocean Rig Mykonos for offshore drilling in Brazil. The term of each extension is 1,095 days with a total combined revenue backlog of over $1.1 billion, excluding reimbursement by Petrobras for contract-related equipment upgrades.

    This takes Ocean Rig’s contracted revenue backlog to $5.5 billion over the next few years. The new contracts will begin in the first and second quarters of 2015, directly following the end of the current agreements with Petrobras.

    Hello Maria WLL is based in Whiting which is closed to Gary and no I don't live in Gary, moved out of Gary in 1967. Those high drives in a stock usually have a pullback like LOGG. Regarding DRYS, DRYS owns the bulk of ORIG, ORIG which is a deep sea oil drilling company drills the oil in Brazil for PBR. With the scandal going on in PBR its hurting ORIG and DRYS, both ORIG and DRYS have set costs, and regardless of oil prices they still get paid the same. Theirs many stories on ORIG and DRYS, here is one ,,, GREECE--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2014) - Ocean Rig UDW Inc. (NASDAQ: ORIG) (the "Company" or "Ocean Rig"), a global provider of off-shore contract drilling oil services, today announced the following:

    •On November 18, 2014, Ocean Rig's $120 million loan to its majority shareholder, DryShips Inc. ("DryShips"), was approved by a special committee of Ocean Rig's Board of Directors which received a fairness opinion from Global Hunter Securities, a division of Seaport Global Securities LLC, and the loan agreement was executed by both companies. This loan is for a period of 18 months, is unsecured and bears interest at LIBOR plus an average of approximately 10% for the first year and 12% for the following six months. Ocean Rig has the option to exchange the loan for Ocean Rig common shares owned by DryShips at a fixed price of $13.50 per share, provided the DryShips ABN AMRO $200 million secured bridge loan facility has been repaid in full. If such exchange occurs, the margin of the Ocean Rig $120 million loan to DryShips will be reduced from inception to LIBOR plus an average of approximately 6.6% for the first year and 8.25% for the following six months.

    Hello Maria, KOG was bought out by WLL and when you see the company you will know who it is, they are not to far for Gary. Regarding DRYS I already own it and getting confused why people are selling off DRYS, they have a backlog of shipments, even the CEO bought 58 million shares at a 1.40, I think their is a lot of market fear right now and I will wait before adding more. Have a great day

    don't touch another oil company stock until you see oil reverses and stays reversed, oil company stocks are cheap and you will see bankruptcies by march, just my opinion

    You wrote to the attorney and never read what the lawsuit consist of? Here is part of the reason for the lawsuit among others,,,,, The Company is alleged to have overstated its property, plant and equipment line item on its balance sheet

    Did they teach you when a company funnels money its in violation of the Patriot Act under the SEC terms, your better off buying an oil company that doesn't commit fraud. Years of quarterly reports have to be redone because of fraud, and you don't need a MBA to figure it out

    this is good news about Greece...Greek women are good in bed. Wild.


    As of September 30, 2014, MOL had cash and cash equivalents of MYR60.3 million (US$18.4 million) and total borrowings of MYR72.6 million (US$22.1 million).
    As you can see from the balance sheet which ended on September 30th 2014 it does NOT included the revenue from the IPO sale, so it does make the company worth far more then todays price, the IPO came out in October and the revenue from the IPO will be added to the next report.

    Vincent Tan is also a billionaire, with only 13.5 million shares on the market he could buy them all back at n6 dollars a share and walk away with a profit from the IPO sale, forget marketcap as it includes total outstanding shares not float, float is only 13.5 million valued around 39 million, and Vincent got 88 million on 7.5 million shares the first round of shares sold then another 60 million on 6 million shares the second round, total 148 million, he could buy back all shares at 10 dollars a share and still walk away with a profit

    .76 cents then its halted hehehehe

    That's the one thing I could never understand with the Brazilians on this board, the lower oil goes the more PBR makes, but if you look back the higher oil goes the more PRB makes, they should realize it doesn't matter what the price of oil, because its more money for corrupt officials HEHEHE and its now under a SEC investigation, long or short this is dangerous as it can be halted at any time.
