11:31 EDTNBRDeutsche Bank sees bottom nearing for offshore drillers, upgrades two in space
Detusche Bank upgraded Diamond Offshore (DO) and Transocean (RIG) to Hold from Sell, saying that the companies should be boosted by upcoming reductions in the number of drilling rigs deployed by energy companies. WHAT'S NEW: As many as 180 drilling vessels may cease activity over the next 12-18 months, wrote Deutsche Bank analyst Mike Urban today. The energy sector seems to have become "more realistic" about the need to reduce supply and the offshore drilling industry is "on the cusp of a major restructuring" that should mark the bottom for valuations and pricing, he explained. Addressing the long-term outlook of deepwater drilling, Urban contended that the consensus outlook, which predicts that deepwater drilling will disappear, is incorrect. In ten years, there will be demand for 320 floating rigs, versus the 225 that are active today, Urban predicted. Over the long-term ,energy companies will have to "go where the oil is," and the oil is located in deep water, the analyst explained. He raised his price target on Diamond to $21 from $17 and on Transocean to $10 from $6. WHAT'S NOTABLE: A former executive at Petrobras (PBR) testified to receiving payments made by someone claiming to be an agent of Transocean in exchange for a rig-operation contract, linking the offshore rig contractor for the first time to the corruption probe of Brazil's state-run oil company, reported Bloomberg on September 24. The news outlet cited testimony from last month as its source for the story. Subsequently, Transocean said that it had not identified any wrongdoing by its employees vis-a-vis Petrobras and is "committed to doing business lawfully and with the highest ethical standards." PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Diamond fell 4% to $17.62 and Transocean lost 1.75% to $12.36. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other oil and gas well drillers include Helmerich & Payne (HP), Ensco (ESV), Nabors Industries (NBR) and Seadrill (SDRL), all of which are in negative territory this morning.

11:48 EDTBBBYPier 1 Imports plunges to 52-week low after cutting FY16 outlook
Shares of home furnishings retailer Pier 1 Imports (PIR) are sinking after the company's second quarter results missed analysts' consensus estimates. The company also lowered its outlook for fiscal year 2016. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Thursday, Pier 1 Imports reported Q2 earnings per share of 4c and revenue of $430M, missing analysts' consensus estimates of 7c and $435.38M, respectively. Company comparable sales increased 2.5% in Q2, or 3.8% on a constant currency basis. Alex Smith, the company's president and chief executive officer, commented in the earnings report that top line growth in the period was "below our expectations." Smith noted that margins were impacted by higher promotional and clearance activity, as well as inventory-related issues within its distribution center network. Looking ahead, Pier 1 Imports expects third quarter EPS of 10c-14c, far short of analysts' consensus estimates of 23c. Company comparable sales growth, which includes e-commerce, is expected in the low-single digits for the quarter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pier 1 lowered its FY16 EPS view to 56c-64c from 83c-87c, well below analysts' estimates of 83c. The company also cut its FY16 company comparable sales growth view, including e-commerce, to low single-digits from its prior view of mid-single digits. For FY16, Pier One sees capital expenditures of approximately $60M, EBITDA margins of approximately 7.5%-8% and merchandising margin, as a percentage of sales, of 55.5%-56%. Smith said the company is on track to end FY16 with year-over-year inventory levels "down meaningfully," but noted that operating with elevated inventories "has been a challenge." PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Pier 1 Imports fell $1.45, or 16.71%, to $7.23 on more than seven times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $6.84. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 40% over the past year. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other home furnishing retailers include Williams-Sonoma (WSM), up 0.73% and Restoration Hardware (RH), up 0.11%.
