Two Offshore Drillers Offering Value Today

Large integrated oil companies are tightening their belts in 2014, with ExxonMobil  (NYSE: XOM  ) and Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-A  ) cutting capital expenditures after years of record spending. This has spooked investors in offshore drillers as dayrates plummet in deepwater vessels with 5,000 feet or less of drilling capabilities. While the market continues to punish the industry as a whole, investors can find solid investment opportunities in offshore drillers with new ships, which not only have outstanding utilization rates, but command more money to lease the vessel. Seadrill (NYSE: SDRL  ) , with the newest fleet of deepwater rigs and an industry-leading dividend, is one name investors need to follow, especially if the market continues to discount the firm.
