Guru Investment Theses on National Oilwell Varco Inc

Tweedy Browne Comments on National Oilwell Varco - Nov 26, 2013

National Oilwell Varco (NOV)'s stock symbol is NOV, and industry experts insist it really stands for "no other vendor" as it is the almost universally preferred manufacturer of offshore drilling rig equipment in the global oil & gas industry. It has a leading market position in the segments of the oil & gas industry that are generating the most growth, deepwater drilling and shale drilling. The company has historically generated high returns on capital, has what we believe to be a conservative balance sheet with minimal debt, and, given the uncertainty associated with near term growth of drilling equipment orders, we were able to purchase shares at a significant discount to our estimate of the company's intrinsic value.

From Tweedy Browne's 2013 semi-annual report.

Tweedy, Browne Comments on National Oilwell Varco - Jul 25, 2013

The other new holding is National Oilwell Varco (NOV), a leading global manufacturer of drilling rig equipment and consumables to the energy industry. It has a leading market position in the segments of the oil & gas industry that are generating the most growth, deepwater drilling and shale drilling. The company has historically generated high returns on capital, has what we believe to be a conservative balance sheet with minimal debt, and at purchase was trading at a significant discount to our estimate of the company's intrinsic value.

Bill Nygren Comments on National Oilwell Varco - Jul 11, 2013

National Oilwell Varco (NOV - $69)(NOV)
National Oilwell is one of the world’s largest providers of equipment for oil and gas drilling. Drill rig equipment accounts for about half its sales with the other half a diverse assortment of pipes, pumps, tools, consumables and a distribution business. Last year the stock reached $90, which was 14 times earnings plus amortization. Earnings in the first half of this year are expected to be down about 5%, primarily due to decreased drilling caused by lower natural gas prices. Despite the relatively small dip in earnings, the stock fell 30% to a low of $63 this past quarter. We expect earnings to begin to recover later this year, and we believe that next year could be the most profitable in the company’s history. Earnings growth should be led by a rebound in the global land rig count, continued strong deepwater equipment orders and the benefits reaped from several meaningful acquisitions. Though National Oilwell’s stock has recovered somewhat, it is still priced at less than 10 times estimated 2014 earnings plus amortization. Given that National Oilwell controls more than 50% of the deepwater equipment market and the company’s very high returns on tangible capital, we believe the current valuation is attractive.
