Charles Lemonides, chief investment officer of ValueWorks, which manages about $220 million for private and institutional clients in New York, named two oil-services companies he has invested in for the long term. Flynn said that when the price of oil was rising in late 2017 and early 2018, oil-services companies were “ramping up,” but then “got caught leaning the wrong way” as a reversal in price action led to a significant decline in the U.S. shale rig count.

U.S. companies that use non-standard numbers to calculate executive compensation are overpaying their top managers, according to a new research report.
A three-judge panel found the lower court miscalculated damages because it used a standby rate to determine what Eni would have paid Transocean to complete the contract. It sent the damages decision back to the District Court to recalculate damages based on what work the rig could have performed. Transocean declined to comment on the ruling.
Offshore oil drilling stocks are set to rise with a projected rebound in deepwater drilling after its deepest downturn in 30 years as investment capital rushed to land-based shale drilling, analysts said in a Barron's article. Evercore ISI analyst James West favors Transocean Ltd , Ensco PLC, Rowan Cos PLC and Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc, he told Barron's. Last month, shareholders at Ensco and Rowan agreed to merge. West called Transocean "the best-managed company in the group" and told Barron's the company "has plenty of room for improvement" after its December purchase of Ocean Rig UDW, which operated semi-submersible oil platforms and underwater drillships.
The company's fourth-quarter earnings were unremarkable, but management continues to get ready for the long-awaited recovery of offshore drilling.

Will Oil Shift to a Higher Gear? (Continued from Prior Part) ## Oil rig count Last week, the oil rig count fell by eight to 877. The rig count tends to follow US crude oil prices with a three to six-month lag. In February 2016, US crude oil prices fell to the lowest closing level in 12 years. Between February 11, 2016, and January 7, 2019, US crude oil active futures rose 85.1%. The oil rig count reached a 6.5-year low of 316 in May 2016. Between May 27, 2016, and January 4, 2019, the oil rig count rose ~177.5%. Between May 27, 2016, and December 28, 2018, US crude oil production rose ~33.9%. ## The oil rig count topped? On October 3, US crude oil active futures settled at $76.41 per barrel—the highest closing level since November 21, 2014. Based on the pattern we saw above, the oil rig count could keep rising until at least March 2019. By the second quarter of 2019, US crude oil production growth might slow down. In the week ending November 16, the oil rig count was at 888—the highest level since March 2015. ## US crude oil output In the week ending on December 28, US crude oil production was 11.7 MMbpd (million barrels per day)—record levels. On June 1–October 26, US crude oil production was between 10.8 MMbpd and 11.2 MMbpd. Production broke that range with a rise in the oil rig count in the past few months. With a retreat in the oil rig count, the growth in US oil production might slow down. ## Oilfield services stocks Since US crude oil’s 12-year low on February 11, 2016, the VanEck Vectors Oil Services ETF (OIH) has fallen 28%. Schlumberger (SLB), Halliburton (HAL), Transocean (RIG), and Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), have returned 41.6%, 0.1%, -3.8%, and -18.6%, respectively. Together, they account for ~44% of OIH’s holdings. Any slowdown in US oil drilling activities could drag these stocks.
