At #5, Offshore Oil Growth Drives this Company

If you have been following recent trends in the oil industry, then you know that a flotation device is required on most rigs now. Conventional oil and gas has become harder to find on land and shale oil has yet to truly be tapped outside of the United States. With some of the largest new basins in the world being discovered offshore, companies that provide the best-in-class equipment like FMC Technologies (NYSE: FTI  ) should do more than just tread water. While some view increased competition as a bad thing, analyst Taylor Muckerman views it as vindication that a true growth opportunity exists. That's why the entrance of General Electric (NYSE: GE  ) and a joint venture between Cameron (NYSE: CAM  ) and Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB  ) in the market don't keep him up at night. Find out more in the video below.
