Barclays maintains an 'Overweight' on Transocean (NYSE: RIG) price target of $77.00 (from $75.00).

Analyst, James C. West, said, "Transocean released another positive fleet status report, highlighted by lower downtime expectations and numerous favorable extensions at higher dayrates. RIG is currently our favorite offshore driller due to substantial leverage to rising dayrates and compelling valuation (~65% NAV/share versus the group at ~95%, ex-SeaDrill (Nasdaq: SDRL) and Hercules (Nasdaq: HERO)). Clarity on its Macondo liability and progress on non-core asset divestitures offer further catalysts in the coming months, in our view."

West raises FY13 EPS estimate from $4.65 to $4.80.
