I suggest that you take a long look at this 20-year chart. If you cannot see that (SDRL) is both a strong performer and is heading lower, I suggest you Email me immediately. Having a longer-term perspective of the probability of a profitable future investment will always give you a more consistent bottom line.
General Market Status
The General Market is currently and remains “Fundamentally'” overvalued and “Technically" overbought, and its “Consensus Opinion” is much too bullish. “Insiders” are selling and “Interest Rates / Dividends” are on the rise.
This does not make for “Investing Wisely.” This means that you must consider holding Cash or perhaps taking bearish positions in the coming time-frame. (Taking Bearish positions are for Pro-Active Investors Only!)
My analytic focus and logo are “Investing Wisely,” e.g. taking advantage of the Bullish / Bearish Cycles as they occur within the overall Marketplace. Integrating conservative fundamental analytics within these technical cycles means maintaining a process of the thorough and on-going analytics of many companies, sectors and industry groups. I have maintained such a Profitable Discipline for over 50 years, and it has been very good to both, me and my Clients.
Professor's Opinion (Currently – Bearish) of SeaDrill Limited Corporation (SDRL)
(SDRL) has not been a very strong / performing Company (price-wise) over all of these many months. The current price is down 15% from the highs in Januaty 2013. May I suggest that Holding through this coming period is not “Investing Wisely.” I continue forecasting that both (SDRL), and my selected peers will be under moderate to severe pressure in the coming weeks and perhaps longer.
This is a Warning about Buying or Holding - SeaDrill Limited.
I am also Bearish on the World Economies and the General Markets. I suggest that holding Cash during questionable time frames is a prudent and wise choice. (Folks - This is definitely a "questionable" time frame)!
