Its two Buy-rated picks in the call were Diamond Offshore (NYSE: DO) with some 23% upside to its price targets and Pride International (NYSE: PDE) with about 20% upside to its price targets.
Goldman Sachs even noted Transocean (NYSE: RIG) with 22% upside to its target, although Goldman Sachs only has a neutral rating on that name.
This huge discovery in Brazil is noted as part of the reason for day rates rising, although this now notes a record $639,000/day rate.
