Standpoint Research upgraded Noble Corporation (NYSE: NE) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $38. Analyst Ronnie Moas said the sell-off has created a buying opportunity and is positive on the 4.8% dividend yield.

"The drillers have been hit hard recently and that has created some opportunities," Moas said. "NE is a name I exited two years ago @ $41 and it has underperformed the S&P by > 5000 bps (and underperformed the XLE by 4000 bps) since then. This is a name you could have gone into at $30 and exited at $40 six times in the last ten years."

The dividend was recently hiked and the yield is now 4.8%.
