Jefferies analyst Eduardo Royes raised his price target on Transocean (NYSE: RIG) to $11.00 (from $8.50) but stopped short of upgrading the stock and maintained a Hold rating. The analyst noted the medium-term improves again.

Royes commented, "Opex continues to impress- although some of the reduction likely reflects deferred maintenance, we lower our overall daily per rig cost 'starting point' again. We raise medium-term estimates on this (and with help from lower capex, our PT rises to $11), but remain mindful of the possible bigger step-up in opex from even a modest 'recovery' year in 2018. Further, value is constrained by a weaker normalized profile."
