    If it hits 9.39 I would be jumping through the ceilings. I only see it hovering between 6.50 and 7.50 for the next couple of months. Do enjoy the dividend though.

    There is a reason....the oil market is collapsing. If they were just retailers, I think they would be ok. But they are refiners too and everybody in the oil business and transportation business is getting hit.

    Sound as optimistic as you want......if they had only cut the dividend in half the downturn wouldnot have been so bad. But they cut it out completely. Theb railroads and other transports got fooled and thought the price of oil would not fall so low. They hedged on higher prices and got killed today. Enough is enough on seadrill and sold all my holdings. Will look again after the christmas holiday. Maybe.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    They screwed most here. They said dividend would run through to 2016 and they undercfutted us completely! Most I would assume bought for the dividend. So unless you bought it around 20 or below which you may get some growth on it through the end of next year., who can blame all the folks who ran for the exit. After yesterday, I am personally down 43% on the stock and might have to sell it in late december due to capital gains. We shall see.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Well guess what....they didn't cut the dividend...they eliminated the dividend.

    Sentiment: Sell

    Bought some more SDRL on Friday. Couple of days before earnings are released (11/26). Either it's a smart move or a dumb move depending on earnings. Either way, I still brought down my average cost on SDRL. We shall see.

    Sentiment: Buy

    I suspect it will settle a little today. Still up but not quite as much as when it opened. But I suppose earnings will be down a little and might be a better time to acquire. But, I will grab some today and if down, get some more after earnings. I feel that it's future is brighter then its present.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Cramer just gave us a thumbs down

    He also gave a thumbs down to ESV also. For someone looking an energy service stock like this for the first time... I agree with him. Now is not the time to buy until the price of oil stabilizes. Me personally would buy some more SDRL (long in it now) simply to average down what I already own and the dividend is safe until at least 2016. And as for Cramer; he admits when he is wrong. He does educate the average small investor to the extent it makes it a tad easier for them to understand equities. He probably purposely does not talk about Mutuals, bonds, preferreds, and others like those because for those type of investors the time limit on his show does not give him enough time. Yes, he misses on a lot of stocks because he has to showcase different ones to avoid his show from getting to boring . And let us not forget he is an entertainer. Let's face it...most financial people being interviewed would be like watching a casket warp. To end all of us here, he is human and we all make mistakes.

    Sentiment: Buy
