Wells Fargo downgraded the Offshore Drilling sector two notches to Underweight from Overweight saying it sees the potential for a value trap in 2014.

Within the sector, Wells downgraded shares of Diamond Offshore (DO), Ensco (ESV), Hercules Offshore (HERO), Noble Corp. (NE) and Transocean (RIG) to Market Perform from Outperform. The firm keeps Outperform ratings on Atwood Oceanics (ATW) and Rowan Companies (RDC).

07:10 EDTRDCRowan Companies reports fleet contract status update as of July 20, 2015
Rowan Companies announced that its report of drilling rig status and contract information has been updated as of July 20, 2015. The company continues to estimate planned out-of-service time for the second quarter and full-year of 2015 to range from 3% to 6% for its jack-ups and drillships, subject to fleet repositioning and market conditions. No operational downtime is included in projected out-of-service days, but the company estimates jack-up operational downtime to account for approximately 2.5% of in-service days in current and future quarters. Rowan continues to expect drillship operational downtime to be approximately 5% after a break-in period of approximately six months up to one year. Out-of-service days are days where a rig is out-of-service and is not able to earn revenue. The company may be compensated for certain out-of-service days such as shipyard stays or transit periods preceding a contract. However, any such compensation is deferred and recognized over the period of drilling operations. Operational downtime is when a rig is under contract and unable to conduct planned operations due to equipment breakdowns or procedural failures. Unless otherwise indicated, all day rates on the fleet status include estimated amortization of contract mobilization/modification revenues. However, day rates exclude approximately $20 to $30 million of other miscellaneous aggregate annual revenue the company receives during rig operations. Day rates also exclude rebillable revenues which are equally offset by drilling expenses.
