Argus downgraded Helmerich & Payne (NYSE: HP) from Buy to Hold.

The downgrade reflects the firm's expectations for lower rig utilization over the remainder of 2016, as well as the company's increasing reliance on lower-priced spot contracts rather than higher-priced term contracts.

The firm believes that the dividend remains secure and would consider an upgrade on signs of increased spending by the company's E&P customers and a sustainable upturn in drilling activity.
