10:28 EDTPACD, SDRL, ESV, ORIG, ATW, DO, HERO, RDC, RIGTransocean, peers slip after Deutsche downgrades several in sector
Shares of companies that provide offshore drilling services are falling after Deutsche Bank wrote that investors are underestimating the weakness of the sector's dynamics and lowered it ratings on several of the stocks in the industry. WHAT'S NEW: The rates and utilization of older drilling rigs are dropping rapidly and significantly, Deutsche Bank analyst Mike Urban wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Meanwhile, the amount of rigs available continues to increase quickly, Urban wrote. Investors believe that self-elevating rigs, known as jackups, will not suffer similar price decline, the analyst stated. However, the supply of jack-ups is poised to increase "dramatically" in the second half of 2014 and through 2017, Urban believes. Demand is highly unlikely to keep up with supply growth and jackup rates and utilization should consequently be pressured starting in the second half of 2014 and well into 2015, Urban believes. Offshore drilling stocks are likely to drop an average of 13% from current levels, and consensus estimates for the sector are an average of 23% too high, Urban estimated. He downgraded Diamond Offshore (DO), Ensco (ESV), and Transocean (RIG) to Sell from Hold. The analyst downgraded Noble Corp (NE) to Hold from Buy. Urban kept Hold ratings on Atwood Oceanics (ATW), Rowan Companies (RDC), and Seadrill Limited (SDRL). He maintained Buy ratings on Hercules Offshore (HERO), Ocean Rig (ORIG) and Pacific Drilling (PACD). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Transocean fell 2.3% to $39.53, Diamond Offshore lost 0.3% to $46.30, Ensco lost 0.9% to $50.49, Noble Corp. gained 0.6% to $26.93, Atwood Oceanics fell 1% to $48, Rowan declined 1% to $30.29, Seadrill dropped 0.6% to $35.96.
