Expect they will have a higher liability on the Gulf spill that people are estimating that he thinks the stock price is already saying that. Buying it at this price makes a lot of sense. There will be continued growth in deep water drilling.

This is the rig that was leased by BP. Has been absolutely crushed since the well blowout. Service companies are indemnified by the oil companies, which most people don’t know. They are really down because of the drilling moratorium. If that ends after 6 months, the stock is paying 7% and trading at 4x. Risk/reward is pretty compelling.

With the explosion/oil spill, she thought that if it could be contained within a relatively short period of time, stock reaction was overblown. As time passed, there were questions about future deep water drilling so she sold her holdings.

All companies that had anything to do with British Petroleum and the oil spill have been oversold. When and if the oil spill is under control, there should be a good rally of all the stocks. Good time to start picking away at it.

Drilling services to oil/gas industry. Leader in ultra deep-water space. Likes demand/supply fundamentals. $31 billion backlog on a revenue base of $11 billion. Backlog gives very strong earnings visibility. Generating more free cash flow than it can use so recently announced a dividend policy giving a 3.5% yield that should be sustainable.

(A Top Pick Nov 8/12. Up 32.8% excluding dividends.) Offshore drilling. Has about $40 billion backlog and about 6 years of revenue. Will probably earn about $13 this year and will be down a little bit next year along with the sector.

This is the leader in terms of the complex semi-submersibles for deep shore applications. If you're comfortable with the currency risk, it looks like a good name to hold. Pretty much of a monopoly on the rigs and are booked years in advance. If it drops after the earnings, pick up more.

Deep sea driller. Very well run. As oil prices came down and demand for drilling started to ebb, stock price dropped. No dividend. Future earnings are looking a little weaker than previous. $25-$30 range would look attractive if you've got the patience for the cycle to turn.
