Giddy cash flow. Iron clad balance sheet. Rapidly increasing shareholder equity. Tiny PE ratio. Expansion into deepwater drilling, which isn't going anywhere thanks to a new..much higher base on oil prices due to the depletion of cheaply exploited… More

Having a long term outlook, this stock seems extremely cheap. It's at what looks like the lowest price in the last 20+ years, yet this is a company that's been around a LONG time, and been paying regular dividends for a long time. At one point the dividend payment was as high as $0.75 (quarterly). If paid again some time in the future, that would amount to a 35+% dividend yield on today's price.

In addition, if there is any regression to the mean whatsoever, it wouldn't surprise me if the price went back to $16 - $27 / share.

Again, this is LONG-TERM. If this is CYCLICAL, then I really want to buy. Oil would pretty much have to be dead for good I think in order for this to be done for. I just don't see that happening. We shall see.
