Wow, people cheering that SDRL may get back over $1.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Like the short, who I have already muted, who pointed out that SDRL has 9.6 Bn in Debt. What he ignored was the fact that SDRL's Equity is also 9.6 Bn. Hence the Debt to Equity Ratio is about 1.01. The Ratio in March of this year were 50.2:49.8. Moral of the story is, you have to look at all of the picture to see what it is about, not just the half of it which suits your cognitive bias.
Hi guys , i saw they have over 9B debt , can anyone explain why it is a good investment? Thank you
I looked at the numbers its got positive operating cash flow its profitable and financially sound, the end of this month we should here about the restructuring and being a banker I know management's creditors will be very accommodating to the company to let its business return to financial health and prsperity
SDRL may survive!
Analysts forecast SDRL's 52 week pps range to from $2 to $9
Picked up a small stake 2000 @.45. Potential upside is great. Downside of course is lose 900. Its like playing options. Lets wait and see.
SDRL, What do the Analysts Think? Clearly, options traders are pricing in a big move for SeaDrill shares, but what is the fundamental picture for the company? Currently, SeaDrill is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) in the Oil and Gas - Drilling industry that ranks in the Bottom 40% of our Zacks Industry Rank. Over the last 60 days, 1 analysts have increased their earnings estimates for the current quarter, while none have dropped their estimates. The net effect has taken our Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter from a loss of 1 cent per shareto break even in that period.
Given the way analysts feel about SeaDrill right now, this huge implied volatility could mean there’s a trade developing. Often times, options traders look for options with high levels of implied volatility to sell premium. This is a strategy many seasoned traders use because it captures decay. At expiration, the hope for these traders is that the underlying stock does not move as much as originally expected.
This is starting to act like the banks or someone will bail them out. Creeping up each day now.
Should be a mini-short squeeze when SDRL hits $.0.47 last June 23, 46MM shares were traded it opened at $.47 and closed at $.37 with a low of $.35
Bought 5000 shares @ 40 cent today. Looking to buy a whole lot more. SDRL signed a contract with Statiol oil to drill in Brazil. Big boys are buying. They know something I don't. Heck it is only money.
.57 by e.o.d tomorrow
still avg vol... need a good push above .50
George you are advocating for zero shareholder equity. Obviously you are not one.
With a book value of $18.98 per share its well worth the risk versus reward to buy at $0.43
JF, shipbuilders just phoned asking for a fixed date for delivery of ordered rigs together with a full cash payment! Bond holders also want their cash, on time and with 100% recovery! Go for it man, declare BK and let the music start. You will loose your empire, they will get peanuts but after all its only money!
6 days max until SDRL bankruptcy. We shareholders lose. SDLP and NADL will be dragged into bankruptcy also.
John Fredrikson "will be ok" though, according to him. So at least we have some good news to tell our wives!
Should we take anything positive regarding longer term prospects from the recent move up here? I hope so. By the same token with the end of the month looming if any real significant good news had leaked I would have thought the jump up would be much greater. Could be with some of the recent announcements of contracts that more people are taking flyers on it?
5% up yesterday 6% up today......... Let the good times roll......... JF probably bought all the shares he wanted.............now he'll make the announcement and BINGO he makes another $B.
