Even if you take out all cash and slash R&D to 0$ you just get a yield of 7-8% for a no growth company. Doesn`t look very compelling right now to me and i doubt that it is a good aquisition target at an EV/EBITDA of 16. I mean FB or GOOGL grow at >15% per year and trade at similar multiples and are probably less risky. But thanks for posting the idea, it might be interesting below 4$.
What are their competitors?

CLB
Healthcare 25.9% - CVS EW NVO // BRK.B - 23.1% // Auto's & Oil 15.0% - CLB GPC VDE

Entertainment 4.8% - DIS // Banking 9.9% - WFC // Drinkers & Smokers 4.9% - MO

%'s held @ MV 08/29/2019 minus 16.4% investable cash

I'm pretty sure CLB provides reservoir characterization services as opposed to liscencing simulation software.

The 900 lb gorilla in the industry is Eclipse, which is owned by Schlumberger. I like that you're competing against a small non-core division of a mega-cap.

Also, I've used both and the CMG suite is WAY easier to learn than eclipse.

Some puts on AAPL.

Really underwhelming announcements vs market reaction last week.

Bought some IVQ.DB.V (~12% YTM) and some GCM.NT.U (~10% YTM at this gold price).

Anyone else look at the IVQ bonds? The IVQ.DB.U are trading over 1% tighter but they do mature about 18 months earlier.

Top 5 positions: ELF GCM.NT/GCM.WT.B TII.V PIF AZP.PR.A

Another small add to WBA.
