Transocean upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Judson Bailey upgraded Transocean (RIG) to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $16 from $13. The analyst "significantly" increased his EBITDA and net asset value estimates across the offshore drilling space to reflect increasing demand combined with tightening availability for high spec ultra-deepwater rigs. This is quickly pushing dayrate expectations higher as well as the market value for ultra-deepwater assets, Bailey tells investors in a research note. The analyst cites Transocean's deepwater leverage for his upgrade to Outperform. He also raised his price target for Outperform-rated Rowan Companies (RDC) to $21 from $20, Market Perform-rated Ensco (ESV) to $7.50 from $7.00 and Market Perform-rated Noble Corp. (NE) to $7.00 from $5.50.

Ensco upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Judson Bailey upgraded Ensco (ESV) to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $11 from $7.50. The analyst cites valuation and free cash flow accretion from the announced merger with Rowan Companies (RDC) for the upgrade. The analyst estimates that in addition to the "strong industrial logic" of the merger and the "intangible benefits" of further industry consolidation, the merger is 25%-30% accretive to Ensco's net asset value per share. Further, the deal helps improve the company's free cash flow, liquidity, and net debt to EBITDA in 2020-2021, Bailey tells investors in a research note.

Investor sentiment markedly improved on offshore drillers, says UBS
UBS analyst Sasha Sanwal said investor sentiment has improved markedly on offshore driller and sees scale as being the key value driver from both an efficiency and marketing and contracting perspective. The analyst believes the companies with the largest footprint will capture the greatest "value" and thus likes the Ensco (ESV)/Rowan (RDC) combination along with Transocean (RIG) being the likely preferred investment options. Sanwal raised the price target on Ensco to $12 from $8 and on Rowan to $26.50 from $17.

Rowan Companies upgraded to Outperform on improved outlook at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst James Wicklund upgraded Rowan Companies to Outperform from Neutral on an improved outlook for premium and harsh environment jackups coupled with better than expected economics for the JV with Aramco. The analyst also raised his price target on the shares to $20 from $16.

Noble Corp. upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Ian Macpherson upgraded Noble Corp. (NE) to Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $6 from $3.25. The analyst views the stock's risk/reward as balanced at current share levels. His top relative Offshore Drillers picks at this time are Transocean (RIG) and Rowan Companies (RDC). However, the analyst keeps Neutral rating on both those names.
