“In the commodity markets, we’re encouraged that the price of oil is outperforming the price of gold,” Ari Wald, head of technical analysis at Oppenheimer, told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Monday.

“Oil, typically the more economically sensitive commodity, [is] outpacing gold, which is typically more a safe haven, we see that as a sign of bullish risk appetite,” Wald said. “We think it confirms our positive view of the market and argues for a continuation of this advance.”

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Buy Right Now

The best way to value Ensco (ESV), and the offshore oil drillers more generally, is to value them on the basis of their assets. These companies are obviously not earning any money right now, and when they do earn money, their earnings are very cyclical in nature, thus making earnings based analyses (like DCF’s) that make projections of regular earnings into the future inapplicable. So, in this article, I will look at Ensco’s value on the basis of the hard assets that it owns.

As Warren Buffett admonishes, in investing there should really only be two rules: (1) Don’t lose money; (2) don’t forget rule number one. In this spirit, my main focus will be on what I imagine to be the most plausible worst-case scenario. (Thus, for those of you who wish to comment, the most obvious way to attack my argument is to show how what I imagine to be the worst case is actually not the worst-case, and that, in fact, there is something else which is plausibly worse. I greatly look forward to reading your ideas.) My thesis will be that Ensco’s shares are undervalued even relative to this worst-case scenario. As a result, an investment in Ensco at current levels should cohere to Buffett’s investing rules laid out above, meaning a loss (over a longer-term holding period, of course) should be highly unlikely and the upside should take of itself. What I say here for Ensco should, in large part, be applicable (with the appropriate tweaks) to the others of the big-five offshore oil drillers as well – i.e., Transocean Ltd. (NYSE:RIG), Rowan Companies plc (NYSE:RDC), Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc. (NYSE:DO), and Noble Corporation plc (NYSE:NE). Furthermore, what I say here takes more of the feel of a back-of-the-envelope calculation, as opposed to hyper-precise spreadsheet modeling. Again, following Buffett, the idea is to be approximately right, rather than precisely wrong.
