Dodge & Cox Comments on Schlumberger
Posted by: guruhl (IP Logged)

Schlumberger (SLB) (the world's leading oil services company) has been a long-term holding in theDodge & Cox Equity Funds. Roughly two-thirds of Schlumberger's revenues come from outside the United States. The company is the dominant international provider in key markets including the Middle East and Russia. Historically, its international business has had higher margins and faster growth rates than its U.S. operations. Among its peers, Schlumberger has also consistently spent more on technology and research and development. Although a supply or demand shock to oil prices could reduce industry exploration and production budgets, we believe Schlumberger is well positioned to continue to benefit from the long-term relationships it has with international oil companies and producing countries.

From Dodge & Cox Funds' The Energy Sector commentary.
