Market Sentiment Watch: Most eyes turned back to Ukraine after last night's troubles.  In energy land SLB and BHI report solid and better than expected quarters and the outlooks are upbeat.  In general, our group is acting well and we continue to stress what we have recently written regarding balancing trades if the group makes a further run into the heart of the 1Q14 energy reporting season. In today's post please find comments and a cheat sheet on the TPLM quarter, the oil inventory review (approaching record crude stocks rapidly and we're at record levels on the Gulf Coast but oil doesn't really seem to care yet), comments on the upsized deals at ATHL and RICE as well as a couple of comments on the SLB quarter.
