What are Wall Street analysts saying about Transocean stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Transocean stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Transocean displays excellent track record of earnings surprise history, beating estimates in the last 16 quarters. We like Transocean's technologically advanced and versatile drilling fleet, strong backlog, healthy financials and considerable pricing power. With the market for offshore rigs unlikely to turn around anytime soon, the company has been selling/stacking older rigs as well as investing in high-specification rigs in order to improve the quality of its fleet. The recent acquisition of Songa Offshore by RIG bodes well for the company as it is expected to strengthen Transocean’s portfolio and boost its backlog. Nevertheless, we expect RIG shares to remain soft until oil prices rebound sufficiently, as deepwater/ultra-deepwater drilling – with its associated risks and steep costs – require a far higher oil price than what is prevailing currently. Thus we take a cautious stance on the prospects of the stock." (10/17/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Our time with management suggested that RIG sees a tougher path ahead towards pricing recovery for jackups than for floaters and that RIG is keen to have the flexibility to pursue floater deals; combined, these views were the impetus for the Borr deal. On M&A, we sensed more of an interest in niche assets (harsh environment) and/or smaller companies and in particular those with leverage to niche markets. We tweak our model for the Borr transaction." (3/21/2017)
- 3. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We noted in our Recap and Weekly that Borr Drilling was reportedly interested in purchasing Transocean's jackup fleet. According to Tradewinds, the Norwegian startup is "closing in" on a $1.2 billion deal to acquire a fleet of 15 RIG jackups. The potential transaction would entail Transocean's entire active fleet of 10 high-specification jack-ups, plus another five newbuilds under construction at Singapore's Keppel FELS, for a total price of $1.2 billion. Another $1.125 billion is due on the five newbuilds, which would be assumed by Borr Drilling as these rigs have been deferred until 2020. Excluding the $290 million already paid for these newbuilds, the reported purchase price averages to $120 million per jackup and is well above our Bull Case estimate of $96 million and IHS-Petrodata's $80 million estimate for >=350' IC modern jackups. Half of Transocean's active jackup fleet is currently stacked while the other half is contracted for 38 rig months (average 7.6 months per rig) for $172 million in backlog (only 1.5% of RIG's total $11.3 billion)." (3/13/2017)
- 4. Instinet analysts commented, ". RIG's 4Q results were a step in the right direction in terms of further lowering operating costs and delivering effective performance as fleet-wide revenue efficiency was 100%+. RIG was also proactive in the quarter with respect to its balance sheet, raising $1.25bn+ in cash through secured debt offerings on two of its drillships contracted with Shellthe Deepwater Thalassa and the Deepwater Proteus. While RIG still has the biggest 2020 cash shortfall among the drillers according to our cash flow bridges, RIG has the most levers to pull in terms of extending its liquidity runway by raising additional capital through continued secured debt offerings, or extending the timing of its remaining newbuild payments."

Transocean (NYSE:RIG) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks 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). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst 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.
