Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Diamond Offshore Drilling stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Diamond Offshore’s technologically advanced and versatile drilling fleet enables it to stay ahead of its peers in a market, where offshore rig demand is expected to surge through 2025. At the end of the second quarter of 2018, the company had a total contracted backlog of $2.2 billion, reflecting 23 rig years of work. This not only reflects steady demand from clients but also offers an unmatched level of earnings and cash flow visibility. The cost-control initiatives of Diamond Offshore are also promising. However, the companyis facing pressure on top line. While oil prices have improved over the last year, the company’s revenues have failed to register a positive change. In the trailing 12 months the company’s revenues fell 14.1%. It has also expressed concern relating to reduced EBITDA margin as customers try to seal the deal at the ongoing rates for future works. Therefore a cautious stance should be maintained on the stock." (8/10/2018)
