Hold
Frank's International downgraded to Hold from Buy at Evercore ISI

The analyst sees downside to estimates and views the current valuation as excessive and said the floater rig count is unlikely to bottom until late 2017/early 2018, and revenues are further exacerbated by pricing pressure internationally, with top line numbers unlikely to see an improvement over the next six quarters.
