What are analysts saying about Rowan Companies PLC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Rowan Companies PLC stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Rowan Cos offers investors stable earnings and cash flow visibility, given its technologically advanced and versatile offshore drilling fleet, strong backlog and considerable pricing power. Moreover, Rowan’s joint venture with Aramco is expected to drive higher utilizations for the drop-down rigs. Rowan’s cost-control initiatives are also noteworthy. Rowan outperformed the industry in the last three months and it has a strong earnings surprise history. Rowan’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the four quarters with an average positive earnings surprise of 777.27%." (10/17/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "RDC solidified, if not modestly strengthened, our sense of the relatively healthy demand outlook for many of its jackups through the medium-term, and we continue to see healthy FCF generation through the long-term. However, we see ample downside risk to estimates through 2018E, as we believe the spottiness of work as the cycle turns, and the likelihood of depressed dayrates through 2018 suggest (much) weaker earnings than is appreciated. Maintain Hold." (2/25/2017)
