    I'm not convinced end of year tax selling will be all that significant. The vast majority of this stock is held and being sold by instirutions, many of which end their year in 10 days. Their reasons for selling are 1) no distributions soon, 2) don't want to show it on the books at y/e 3) general herdal instincts and 4) mindless pounding computers with lax supervision. Individuals who have survived the tree shaking that's now going on seem unlikely to be massive sellers in December. If anything the stock may even be a "january effect" buy for a pop at that time.

    Negative SDRL

    It's called capitulation which means even to those in the algorhythmic world, "I don't know why we're at these levels but I'd better get out too!". Fortunately it's usually the last stages of an emotional response. Often times traders will take out the stops usually set just below prior lows and rally from there. We could see that as early as today.

    Consider that over the last four years the stock price has now done nothing in share price and ALL the shares bought over that time are at a loss except for the considerable cash divs. Now consider how far the company has come in that time and ask yourself if it makes any sense to be selling at today's price. Naw!

    SDRL my 3 month outlook

    I usually don't try to predict near term returns but on a fundamental basis over the next six months I judge the potential risk to $28 or so and potential return to the high $30's. Roughly 4:1 favorable. With a 13% dividend while waiting that a "businessman's risk" and works for me. Not guaranteeing results but the stock looks to me like it put in a bottom on the Ides of Sept. Stay tuned!

    Cutting Dividend Scenario....

    That's probably more your judgment than reality. I've listened to all the CC's in the last couple of years and some very definite statements about dividends with times attached have been been made by mgt. So much so that in today's litigious environment I think it would be cheaper to pay the dividend than to fend off the wolves if they renege on past statements that left little to no wriggle room.

    Bottom Line: with a $17 billion backlog and previous statements by mgt on record a near term cut is but a bearish wet dream.

    Yeah but most of them fit into the the category of, "sex munce ago i cudnt ewen spel analiss, now i r one".

    And anytime I see that #$%$ I remind myself of the dizzy one who predicted the demise of the muni markets with hundreds of muni bankruptcies. And how did that work out for her?

    If we are "edging closer to war with Russia" I can assure you SDRL will be the least of your problems as you further contemplate your navel (sic) base. LOL

    "Sleeping well at night" generally not conducive to making money. As Buffett has been often quoted "You pay a big price for that cheery consensus". Also "be greedy when others are fearful" applies here at these prices.
