Ensco Rowan initiated with an Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Following the completion of the merger of Ensco and Rowan to create Ensco Rowan plc, Morgan Stanley analyst Connor Lynagh initiated coverage of the newly combined company with an Overweight rating and $25 price target, noting that analyst estimates vary widely as of now. He believes Ensco Rowan has a strong portfolio of assets and an "undemanding valuation" compared to U.S.-listed peers and sees the discount narrowing as the market gains further clarity.

Buy
Ensco Rowan price target lowered to $15 from $30 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Gregory Lewis lowered his price target on Ensco Rowan to $15 as part of his broader research note on offshore drillers. The analyst notes that the recent bankruptcy of Weatherford has "reignited concerns around over-levered balance sheet" and placed offshore drilling firms in the "crossfire" of short-sellers, even as Ensco's on-contracted floater count at 133 rigs marks the highest capacity since July of 2018. Lewis adds that the sector is also being pressured by the retreat in Brent oil price back below $70 per barrel.

Underperform
Ensco Rowan reinstated with an Underperform at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Chase Mulvehill reinstated coverage of Ensco Rowan with an Underperform rating and $7 price target. In a research note to investors, Mulvehill says the merger with Rowan created the the largest, most diverse offshore driller, but says his "less sanguine" floater market outlook, along with high debt levels, does not lend itself to any free cash flow between now and year-end 2021. The analyst expects further underperformance for shares without any line of sight to deleveraging the balance sheet.
