TechnipFMC
Just Starting to Build Steam
What's new: 4q18 review. New TP USD 36 (37) largely due to loss provision. 2021 roll-out
Our take: Following yesterdays 8% tumble FTI trades at 25% discount to historical average. With 1h19 book-to-bill expected >1.4x we see upside to 2019 guidance and estimates. Buy
2019-02-21T22:40:49+1
Noble Corp
Comfortably Positioned for 2019
What's new: 4q18 review. Share price target down to USD 3.6/sh (USD 4/sh).
Our take: 2019 guidance was largely in-line with expectations, except for capex. NE has done a tremendous job in contracting its jackups and is finding tailwind for its floaters.
2019-02-21T22:06:35+1
Ler??y Seafood Group
Strong Quarter Expected Upgrade to Buy
What's new: 4q18 preview FSest EBIT NOK 1,074m and DPS NOK 2.0/sh. Upgrade to Buy.
Our take: Strong quarter expected as the 17G is continuing to improve cost across all regions. Less trout volumes q/q also bodies well for overall price achievement.

Odfjell Drilling
A Preferred Offshore Driller
What's new: 4q18 review. Target reduced to USD 5.2/sh (USD 5.4). Buy reiterated.
Our take: ODL screens as one of the most attractive drillers in our coverage universe. We see several near term triggers which should reignite the share price, we believe.

2019-02-21T10:56:36+1
Teekay LNG Partners
Offering Detailed 2019 Guidance
What's new: 4q18 results ahead of expectations
Our take: Detailed EPS and cash flow guidance for 2019, largely supporting our estimates. TGP continues to deleverage quickly, whilst distributing c. 6% fwd. yield and buying back stock (USD 100m share rep. program whereof USD 13m spent YTD). Buy reiterated.
2019-02-21T10:11:46+1
Teekay Tankers
Looking Like a Tier 1 Operator
What's new: Strong 4q18 results
Our take: TNK beating expectations through a c. USD 3k/d outperformance on the Suezmax spot fleet in the quarter. 1q19 guidance suggesting c. 10-15% upside to our estimates. Buy.
2019-02-21T09:39:26+1
Maersk
Growing Uncertainty
What's new: 4q18 first take
Our take: A lot of news to digest, but overall soft guidance c. 20% below expectations and high uncertainty leaves continued poor risk/ reward in our view. Reduce reiterated.
2019-02-21T09:15:35+1
Shelf Drilling
Agreement to Acquire Modern JUs Whats Not to Like?
What's new: Acquires two Gusto CJ 46 design jackups + option for two more JUs from CMHI
Our take: Headline price of USD 87m/rig is attractive, but reduced by c. 31m/rig due to 100% share settlement at c. 60% premium to last close. Thats an attractive deal. Buy.

Fjord1
4q18 Unlikely to Trigger Major Estimate Changes
What's new: 4q18 first take
Our take: Overall as expected with lower JV contribution the main negative. Unlikely to make material changes to 2019 estimates. Dividend of NOK 2.7/sh represent c. 50% of EPS.
2019-02-21T08:04:37+1
Noble Corp
Ending 2018 on a positive note
What's new: 4q18 results: EBITDAadj. of USD 102m vs. FSest. USD 87m / CS USD 92m
Our take: NE reported solid 4q18 results following high uptime. NE is closed to being sold out on the jackups side for 2019 already, while floaters are starting to find momentum.
2019-02-20T15:48:06+1
Odfjell Drilling
Sitting in the sweet spot
What's new: Tuning estimates ahead of 4q18 results tomorrow
Our take: With Deepsea Stavanger in transit to South Africa, we expect some noise in the numbers. Our focus is on the market however, which looks increasingly tight. Buy.

2019-02-20T08:47:08+1
Transocean
Tangible evidence of market recovery
What's new: 4q18 review: target lowered to USD 12/sh. Credit and Equity Buy reiterated
Our take: The floater outlook is starting to look very potent. RIG comes through as a robust play on market recovery. Share price target lowered to USD 12 (USD 13) on higher capex.

BW Offshore
Short Term pains, Long Term Gains
What's new: 4q18 review and 2021 roll-out. Incorporation of Dussafu ph. 3.
Our take: Disappointing results and 2019 opex guidance in Oil and Gas offset by attractive long term prospects and strong FPSO performance. Buy maintained under NOK 56 TP (55)

Golden Ocean Group
Operationally Strong Bracing for Softer 1h19
What's new: 4q18 first take
Our take: Overall a strong quarter from GOGL, and though a sensible move in our view we would expect much attention to be placed at an implicit softer dividend policy.

Miss due to Lower Realized Oil Price Related to Timing
What's new: 4q18 first take. EBITDA of USD 149m below FSest./CS USD 166m
Our take: Miss in Oil and Gas largely explained by lower realised oil price due to timing of sales. 2019 production guidance suggests upside to FSest. Case intact, Buy maintained.
2019-02-19T08:12:15+1
Bakkafrost
4q18 First Take: EBIT 29% below CS
What's new: 4q18 First Take EBIT DKK 231m vs. FSest/CS DKK 286m/324m
Our take: Weak quarterly performance as Russian ban is hurting achieved prices. Faroe Islands increase revenue tax from 4.5% to 5.0%. DPS also well below expectations.
2019-02-19T00:58:08+1
Transocean
Standing Strong on a Firm Foundation
What's new: 4q18 results EBITDAadj. of USD 219m vs. FSest. USD 222m / CS USD 240m

Long-Term Story Intact, but Cautious Ahead of Numbers
What's new: 4q18 preview
Our take: Long-term story remains intact, but we are cautious ahead of 4q18 due Feb 21st. Lower FY18/19 EBITDA by 1%. Reiterate Buy, TP down to NOK 56 (NOK 61, 11th Nov 2018).
2019-02-14T13:50:38+1
GasLog
Setting Seven New Records
What's new: 4q18 first take

2019-02-14T13:09:47+1
Scorpio Tankers
Showing Strength
What's new: 4q18 results
Our take: LR2 to MR rates in both 4q/ 1q19 guidance both comforting and impressive, suggesting an EBITDA potential of USD 100-125m. Buy reiterated.
2019-02-14T11:52:00+1
Standard Drilling
Discount on All Fronts
What's new: Update post 4q18

Awilco Drilling
Nearing next step in the transformation
What's new: 4q18 review. Upcoming decision on second rig option.
Our take: AWDR sits with three newbuild options, with the first falling due 8th March (9th is a Saturday). Equity financing is currently off the table, other options should exist, though. Buy.

Ocean Yield ASA
20% higher dividend capacity with new contract on FPSO
What's new: 4q18 review and updated liquidity analysis. New TP NOK 78/sh (75)
Our take: We estimate a contract on FPSO DH1 and employment on Connector would add c. 20% dividend capacity to current levels leaving room for resumed dividend and fleet growth
2019-02-14T08:19:55+1
Aker
Aker Energy on Schedule, DPS of NOK 22.5/sh in line

Soft Quarter with Ambitious Strategic Growth Plans
What's new: 4q18 results: EBITDAadj. of NOK 63m vs. FSest. NOK 93m / CS NOK 86m
Our take: A soft quarter, but ambitious strategic growth plans, including planned IPO for MHWirth within 5 years and the combination of First Geo + AGR provides positivism.
2019-02-13T09:22:08+1
Awilco Drilling
Steady and stable
What's new: 4q18 results: EBITDAadj. of USD3m, ahead of FSest. on lower costs

Ocean Yield ASA
The Empire Strikes Back
What's new: 4q18 first take. Option agreement on FPSO signed with Aker Energy
Our take: Option agreement signed with Aker Energy overshadows 9% miss to FSest. 4q18 EBITDA. A option call-off will more than bridge the dividend gap, enabling dividend growth
2019-02-13T07:15:39+1

2019-02-13T06:51:15+1
Kvaerner ASA
Dividends Trumps All
What's new: 4q18 review. New TP NOK 17 (16), 3% negative revision to 2019-20E EBITDA
Our take: Reintroduction of dividends, strong 2019 coverage and positive market comments trump weak margins. Short term headwinds, but too cheap to ignore in an improving market
