From a drilling point of view, there is a decent backlog. Day rates are very expensive right now and for the ultra deep rigs there is a bit of a shortage. This is a sector that he is looking at. It tends to be a trade because it is highly cyclical.

Regarding oil, he sees Brent closing the year at around $100 and WTI somewhere in the $90 range. Ultra deep water drillers are able to book in a little bit better rates so he sees better opportunities for drillers like Diamond Offshore (DO-N) or Ensco (ESV-N), which are trading at better valuations.

Just sold his position. Has been quite disappointed in management for several months. Mid-2011 declared a very large dividend, distributing cash to shareholders and then went out and raised cash. This didn't make a lot of sense. (See Top Picks.)

Generally likes this one. Most of the oil globally is held by foreign governments or oil companies that don't want the West involved. What they do want is the service company technology. This is one of the larger providers of oil rigs globally.

A frustrating experience for everyone. One thing after another. There is a disconnect between commodities and underlying stocks and it is frustrating for holders of oil services stocks. It is about confidence. Thinks it is bottoming.

You're going to get very good volatility in this name. It does look cheap and technically it might look interesting but he doesn't know what is going on and as a right now. Probably has too much debt.

Has been a "tough own". 139 Drilling vessels. They are well positioned for the type of drilling that will dominate over the next few years.

(Top Pick Oct 20/10, Down 38%) Over intermediate and longer term we are going to have a greater and greater need for oil. One of the largest companies in the area.

Sold around $72. Price never recovered. Demand / supply is still rather soft. Some headline risk with lawsuits.

Is supposed to holdup on this whole cap X cycle but is has not held up. Canada is well positioned to participate in the cap X cycle. Swap into a Canadian oil rig company.

By end of year oil could be $125 oil. Thinks you will have demand destruction in N.A. and Europe but growth in developing nations. Problems with the gulf are essentially behind them.

Transocean (RIG-N), Halliburton (HAL-N) or BP (PB-N)? Even though Transocean has recovered well in share price after the BP spill, thinks there is more opportunity for recovery with this one.
