Best Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

RBC’s Kurt Hallead and Benjamin Owens offer their take on Transocean (RIG) appearance at the RBC Global Energy and Power Conference:

Bloomberg

Our view: Transocvean continues to execute well, with the focus on revenue efficiency bearing fruit over the last several quarters. However, we believe Transocean shares have limited upside until the market gains more confidence in the supply/demand outlook for floating rigs in 2017-18. Currently, fundamentals continue to weaken for floating rigs, and it remains unclear where dayrates and utilization may bottom.

Expects to see 2H16 opportunities in the jackup market: Transocean expects shallow water to be the first area within the offshore market to see increased spending if oil prices remain constructive. The demand for jackups is being driven by independent oil companies and NOCs. The company still expects the deep water rig count to trend lower through at late-2016 or early-2017.
