06:59 EDTRIGTransocean price target lowered to $6 from $16 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank lowered its price target for Transocean shares to $6 after the company announced an 80% dividend reduction and the departure of its CEO. Deutsche says reducing the dividend frees up about $800M per year and that the move will likely be viewed positively since an elimination was a potential outcome. The firm, however, expects the company's free cash flow to remain negative for the "foreseeable future" and reiterates a Sell rating on the stock. Shares of the offshore driller are trading up 55c to $19.60 in pre-market trading.
