  • Recent Insider Buys Include This Large Cap Internet Stock

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: EBAY, IR, NBR

    According to Insider Monkey’s analysis of studies on the subject, stocks bought by insiders tend to slightly outperform the market on average. While it’s impossible for investors to imitate each one of the hundreds to thousands of insider purchases which take place each year, we think that reviewing insider purchases can work similarly to a stock screen in providing a list of names which investors can research further more »

  • Which Oil Service Name to Buy Among Polarized Views From the Street?

    By Zain Abbas - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, HAL, NBR

    There have been a wide variety of comments coming out regarding the outlook for the oil services industry. The other day, Goldman Sachs produced a report that stated that investors hold a bearish point of view on this industry. Credit Suisse recently published a report that states that chances of oil field service companies beating the consensus estimates are more than missing them. Oil field service is just one example more »

  • How Safe Are the Dividends of These 3 Oil Drillers?

    By Rupert Hargreaves - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: ESV, HP, NBR

    Personally, I believe that one of the cheapest sectors in the market right now is the oil services sector, including oil and gas drilling companies.  Recently, these drillers have been sold-off as investors are concerned that the the number of hydrocarbon wells being drilled in the US is starting to fall, as the shale oil boom could be reaching its peak.

    However, these companies could be due for a positive more »

  • Suddenly This Becomes a Dividend Play

    By Mark Holder - June 7, 2013 | Tickers: ESV, HP, NBR, RIG

    Prior to June 5, Helmerich & Payne (NYSE: HP) was seen as a solidly run contract drilling firm with a small dividend. The company made a surprising announcement that it would dramatically increase the yield making the stock interesting for the yield now. Or maybe it wasn’t that surprising considering the expected influx of cash and a strong balance sheet.

    The company operates primarily as a contract drilling firm with more »

  • Finding Value in Oil Service Stocks

    By Rupert Hargreaves - April 27, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, NBR, NOV, RDC

    I'm in this business to make money, I am also a disciple of Benjamin Graham, so naturally I am always on the lookout for stocks that offer deep value, and right now, some of the best value I can find is in oil services stocks, which have been sold off recently due to the falling price of oil.

    In practice, the panic selling that has been spurred by the more »

  • Oil Service Stocks: Pain Now, Gain Later?

    By Bob Chandler - April 8, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, HAL, NBR

    Times are tough for oil service companies and they may not be getting better any time soon. These firms have seen demand fall as North American drillers have cut back and with plenty of oilfield service supply added during the 2011 fracking boom, pressure on profits has increased. But as these companies work their way through a tough 2013, the future may be less painful.

  • Dividend Stocks You Should Buy This Month

    By Madhukar Dubey - April 3, 2013 | Tickers: ESV, NBR, RIG

    According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), global per-barrel oil prices will fall below $100 by the end of 2014. Additionally, the US oil imports will reduce to half of the mid-2000 level. This decline in imports is an indicator to the upsurge in the domestic oil production. The US per-day oil production in 2014, could reach its highest level in the past two-and-a-half decades. This gives a good growth more »

  • The Australian Basins: Manna for Oilfield Services

    By Nathan Kirykos - March 26, 2013 | Tickers: NBR

    The energy-services sector provides investors with exposure to the oil-and-gas industry minus the inherent risks associated with exploration and development drilling. Secondly, demand for more drilling is robust. All the energy players must replenish reserves, and they must continue meeting their goals thereby setting a baseline of drilling activity going forward. 

    On top of that, the advent of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) brought a shale revolution. Worldwide oil more »

    Transocean (NYSE: RIG) will be coming out with their earnings report next week.  Unfortunately for the company, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, which also happens to be the petroleum industry’s largest “accidental” marine oil spill in history, is in the forefront again.

  • Which Oil Rig Stock Should You Buy?

    By Rupert Hargreaves - January 30, 2013 | Tickers: HP, NBR, RDC, RIG

    The world will always need more oil, and as the oil fields that are easy to access run dry, the world will have to go to more extreme places to find it. Oil companies are now dependent upon the expertise of professional oil rig companies to run the drilling and extraction operations that they are no longer able to conduct themselves.
