    Frankly, today’s big drop shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone. The company told us many months ago that common equity investors would only retain 2% — at most — of the company when it completed its bankruptcy proceedings, yet investors continued to pay a price for its stock that, at one point, would have made Seadrill worth nearly as much as competitors Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Diamond Offshore (NYSE:DO), and Noble Corporation (NYSE:NE) combined. But a relatively steady decline in the share price, combined with today’s big drop, seems to be finally putting Seadrill more in line with its peers. 

  • [By Jason Hall]

    On June 27, shares of Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL), Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc (NYSE:DO), and Ensco PLC (NYSE:ESV) traded up more than 10% at various points. And while they’ve cooled off a bit — up 9.9%, 10.3%, and 8.9%, respectively, at recent prices — they continue to march toward today’s close with big gains. And while not quite as much as the three aforementioned companies, shares of Transocean LTD (NYSE:RIG) and Noble Corporation PLC (NYSE:NE) are showing big days as well, up 6.4% and 7.2% in late-afternoon trading.

    But what investors are overlooking are the fundamental risks to this logic. Corporate earnings are the lifeblood of the market, keep in mind. Higher oil prices have already translated into higher gas prices, which is a key risk to automakers such as Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) that have pivoted big-time to producing SUVs and trucks. Higher oil prices have already taken a toll on earnings for packaged food giants like Proctor & Gamble (PG) and Tyson Foods (TSN) . Now, each are staring at consumer price increases because it costs more to deliver their products to stores.

Seadrill Ltd (NYSE:SDRL) is deep into penny-stock land these days. A low-priced stock is often a bad investment. Just because it’s cheap, doesn’t mean it’s a bargain. Too often, while there can be huge gains in penny stocks, the risks are huge, as well. Given its recent problems, SDRL stock is not what it once was.

Seadrill used to be a high-flying company. Its shares traded in the double digits, offered a 10%-plus dividend yield, and appeared to be run by a brilliant manager. That perception has now changed.

Regardless of its past merits, the company has fallen on hard times. Its subsidiaries, such as North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. (NYSE:NADL), have lost virtually all their value. Drilling activity has declined sharply as the price of oil has remained persistently low. And now, even Seadrill looks to be facing a real risk of bankruptcy.

Trading for less than 50 cents a share, investors have to ask: Is SDRL stock a bargain here, or is it likely heading all the way to zero?

Hot Penny Stocks To Own For 2019

What’s Next: The Disney-Comcast war gets personal. Disney CEO Bob Iger and Comcast CEO Brian Roberts have a deep animus toward one another that is fueling their battle over 21st Century Fox, sources familiar with their relationship tell me. Their intense dislike of one another, dating back to Comcast’s hostile takeover attempt of Disney in 2004, means the battle for Fox will be unpredictable and possibly irrational.

Roberts now appears set on stopping Disney from acquiring Fox. His $31 billion counter-offer for Sky — a “crown jewel” of the Fox assets, as Iger put it — may just be the penny ante in a gamble that ends with Comcast trying to acquire Fox, our sources said. Today the Wall Street Journal reports that Comcast “is gaming out the possibility of making a public case to Fox’s shareholders that they should … opt for a Comcast tie-up instead.”

The Big Picture: Fox and Sky are now pawns in Disney and Comcast’s efforts to scale up in a new world where technology, media and telecom have collided and content is the coin of the realm.

    Shares of NRG Energy Inc. (NYSE:NRG) rose 10.9% in August, buoyed by its second-quarter results and an analyst upgrade.

    So what

    “Our business performed exceptionally well during the second quarter,” stated CEO Mauricio Gutierrez in the company’s earnings press release. Driving that view is that income from continuing operations rose from $99 million in the year-ago period to $121 million in this year’s second quarter. Powering the company’s improvement was its retail segment, where adjusted EBITDA came in at $298 million, which was $94 million higher than the second quarter of last year. The company’s generation business also delivered stronger results as adjusted EBITDA rose $45 million to $197 million. Those dual fuels enabled the company to reaffirm its full-year outlook for adjusted EBITDA between $2.8 billion to $3 billion.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Buy For 2019

Each day, Benzinga takes a look back at a notable market-related moment that occurred on this date.

What Happened?

On this day 78 years ago, Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) agreed to begin manufacturing Rolls-Royce engines to assist the British in World War II.

Where The Market Was

The Dow closed at 121.46. The S&P 500 traded at around 9.70. Today, the Dow is trading at 25,322.31 and the S&P 500 is trading at 2,782.00.

What Else Was Going On In The World?

In 1940, Germany and Italy agreed to form a World War II alliance against France and the U.K. The popular comic book "Captain America" debuted, featuring the hero punching real-life Nazi leader Adolf Hitler on the cover of the first issue. Average monthly rent was $30.

Ford’s War Effort

In early 1940, Germany had already conquered Poland, Norway and Denmark and was on the brink of defeating France as well. The U.K. became increasingly aware that a German invasion was imminent, and the British government reached out to the U.S. for help. At the time, the U.S. had no intention of joining the war, but U.S. Office of Production Management director and former General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) president William Knudsen understood the importance of supporting U.S. allies in their fight against the Germans.

Top 5 Penny Stocks To Watch Right Now

Note from the author: I have no prior or existing financial relationship with Joe Lowry or any of his business interests. I have no business relationship with any company mentioned in this interview, nor I do own any shares of any of the companies mentioned here.

This is my fourth interview of “Mr. Lithium,” Joe Lowry. (Do people still call him that?) Following Joe’s advice by paying a pretty penny for his consulting services, or following him for free on Twitter and LinkedIn, is one of the absolute best ways to stay on top of the lithium sector. Although Joe does not give investment advice he sometimes issues public service announcements, warning followers to be careful not to believe everything they read or hear about lithium juniors. (Ask him what he thinks of the dozens of Li juniors heavily focused on projects in Nevada — actually, don’t…)

Still, reading between the lines, it’s been clear which names he has liked over the months and years. Lithium Americas (OTCQX:LACDF) and SQM (NYSE:SQM) are prime examples. Consider that LAC shares have more than doubled from an early July low of C$0.78 (it closed at C$1.70 on Sept. 15th) when rumblings suggested that SQM might not move forward on the LAC/SQM Cauchari-Olaroz project. Joe was among the first to squash those rumors, setting up what turned out to be a highly profitable buying opportunity. SQM is up 120% in the past 12 months (by comparison, the Global X Lithium ETF (LIT) is up 54%, and the S&P 500 Index is up 16%).

Hot Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

What happened 

Shares of natural gas fuel supplier Clean Energy Fuels Corp (NASDAQ:CLNE) jumped as much as 12% in trading Tuesday as oil prices continued to help push the stock higher. At 3:30 p.m. EDT shares were near their high for the day, trading 11.6% higher. 

So what

The ups and downs of crude oil trading can often drive Clean Energy Fuels’ stock and that appears to be what’s happening today. Midday, oil prices spiked on news that the Trump Administration would ban all oil imports from Iran by Nov. 4, 2018. WTI Crude Oil is trading 3.5% higher at $70.45 per barrel and Brent Crude is currently up 2.2% to $76.34 per barrel.

Since Clean Energy Fuels’ natural gas products are a direct competitor to diesel, which comes from crude oil, when oil prices rise it makes natural gas more competitive. For today, investors are speculating that rising oil prices will eventually help the company’s financials.
