Wells Fargo upgraded Precision Drilling (NYSE: PDS) from Market Perform to Outperform with a price target range of $11-$12 (from $7-$8).

Analyst, Tom Curran, said, "We're revising EBITDA/EPS (1) negatively for 2012E from C$797MM/C$1.14 to C$767MM/C$1.06, largely on overdue Q2 flow-through and Q3 true-ups; but, more importantly at this juncture, (2) positively for 2013E from C$809MM/C$1.02 to C$862MM/C$1.15 on more projected Canadian Tier 1 newbuild additions. The stock is offering a nice risk-reward entry point, in our view, between a new primary uptrend's 1st leg -- the late June through early August surge on oil's rebound and valuation -- and its 2nd, which will be driven by Canada."
