What are analysts saying about Rowan Companies PLC stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Rowan Companies PLC stock:
- 1. 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)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Rowan Companies offers investors stable earnings and cash flow visibility, given its technologically advanced and versatile offshore drilling fleet, strong backlog and considerable pricing power. The company's decision to eliminate its dividend might have disappointed income investors but it has provided the much-needed stability to its balance sheet. We also appreciate Rowan’s cost-control initiatives like its decision to significantly lower its 2016 operating expenses. Owing to these strong fundamentals, the company has been able to outperform the Zacks categorized Oil & Gas – U.S. Exploration & Production industry, over a period of three months. However, the company remains unsure of its near-term prospects. With most companies slowing down on activity to manage costs, the company’s utilization rate will be affected and rigs downtime will be increased." (1/3/2017)
- 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Production from EOG’s wells that started production in 3Q15 and 4Q15 and now have at least six months of production and revenue generation (i.e., the latest wells with such data available) spiked versus EOG’s own previous wells and versus peer wells. Lateral placement appears to be the key to the spike in production and revenue generation." (9/19/2016)

Consensus Ratings for Rowan Companies PLC (NYSE:RDC) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
