Top 10 Penny Stocks To Watch For 2019: Transocean Inc.(RIG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Shares of RigNet are up more than 18% since the announcement. However, the company’s stock price had been in rally mode well before that news, rocketing 75% since the end of July. While some notable improvements in its second-quarter results likely helped ignite this rally, the company is also benefiting from the belief that the long-awaited offshore drilling recovery is beginning to unfold. The most recent comments supporting that view came from Transocean’s (NYSE:RIG) CEO Jeremy Thigpen. He stated last week that he expects lease rates on rigs to improve, and that contracting activity should pick up in late 2019. Based on that outlook, he said that “we are far more bullish than we have been historically,” which is one reason Transocean recently made another major acquisition.
