Jefferies assumes coverage on Precision Drilling (NYSE: PDS) with a Buy. PT $11.00.

"PDS investment thesis positives include (1) its leadership position in Canada, which afford it leading margins there and we are optimistic regarding sustained strength in this ‚basin‛ over time; (2) a successfully refurbished its fleet in NAM to now 83% Tier I and II rigs, which gives it a very competitive position in the U.S.; (3) a low cost position in NAM that allows it to continue to be aggressive in terms of newbuilds; and (4) growth potential in its directional drilling and completion service initiatives as well as gradually from non-NAM rig placements."
