Barclays calls offshore drillers overvalued, downgrades Noble to Underweight

Barclays analyst J David Anderson downgraded Noble Corp. (NE) to Underweight from Neutral while raising his price target for the shares to $5 from $4. Since March, offshore-themed drilling stocks have outperformed on the back of Brent oil prices moving above $70 per barrel, Anderson tells investors in a research note. However, current share prices now imply day rates will eclipse $400,000 per day by mid-2022 "in the face of substantial floater overcapacity and few signs of an imminent recovery," the analyst adds. As such, he believes the offshore drillers are the most overvalued group in his coverage. Anderson sees 27% average downside from current levels and downgrades Noble to Underweight. He keeps Underweight ratings on Diamond Offshore (DO), Ensco (ESV), Rowan Companies (RDC) and Transocean (RIG).

Jefferies downgrades Noble with shares up 18% year-to-date
Jefferies analyst Eduardo Royes downgraded Noble Corp. (NE) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $5 from $5.50. The stock is up 18% year-to-date versus its four major peers rising only 2%, Royes tells investors in a research note. He thinks outperformance going forward is unlikely with his framework suggesting "ample downside risk" to 2019 estimates. Among Offshore Drillers, Royes only sees value in Transocean (RIG). He keeps a Buy rating on those shares and raised his price target for $15.

As previously reported, Raymond James downgraded Diamond Offshore to Underperform from Market Perform. Analyst Praveen Narra thinks investors are putting too high a value on its rig fleet and does not think investors are properly accounting for the BOP sale-leaseback model for Diamond's four Black rigs under Pressure control by the hour. Narra sees the Black rigs worth as much as $30M-$45M less than an average New UDW rig given the higher costs.
