Seadrill: What You Need to Be Watching

In the video below, Motley Fool analyst Joel South discusses Seadrill's (NYSE: SDRL  ) geographical footprint, utilization rates, and capacity abilities. 

Specifically, he talks about the geographic diversity of its ultra-deepwater rigs, and how the day rates for these "bread and butter" rigs are higher than competitors Transocean, Noble, and Diamond Offshore

Additionally, he details how its younger fleet and newer technology position Seadrill for strong growth; much of the demand will be for deeper and deeper deepwater drilling, meaning higher day rates, which will in turn drive higher revenues and profits for investors.

    So no mention off the Seadrill qtrly distribution and the special dividend just declared that doubles it. "...a look at their income statement'? Fougeetttaboutit! Watch out that you do not get somehow disadvantaged by this wide ex date pending price swing these shares are about to exhibit! So maybe the first qtr distribution will be curtailed as against the extra dividend? This stock could see a very significant price drop when it goes Ex in few days 12/4 or 5? Anyone with a limit order for this stock should gage that against what conditions you set and expect to see SDRL selloff by at least $1.70 when it goes ex.
