Deutsche Bank downgraded ENSCO International Plc (NYSE: ESV) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $58.00 (from $56.00).

The firm comments, "For ESV, adjustments to subsequent quarters/years reflect the most recent fleet status updates as well as our updated cost assumptions. We are now assuming 7% costs increase in subsequent years as we expect cost pressure especially on the labor front to continue to drive costs higher. Our 2012, 2013 and 2014 estimates go to $5.44, $7.59 and $8.10 from $5.49, $7.75 and $8.35, respectively. Although offshore demand remains strong and ESV is arguably the best managed offshore driller, we see dayrates flattening even as costs rise which takes our rating to HOLD from BUY.
