Guru Investment Theses on Schlumberger Ltd

Dodge & Cox Comments on Schlumberger - Nov 19, 2015

Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB)—the world’s leading diversified oilfield services company—provides a variety of technology-based services that enable companies to identify hydrocarbon reservoirs, drill complex wells, manage production, and maximize recovery over the life of the well. The company is most dominant in international markets, where it is often larger than its next two biggest competitors combined. This leading scale contributes to its superior profitability and free cash flow generation. As a result, Schlumberger has historically traded at a premium valuation compared to its peers. That said, valuations for the Oil Services industry are low relative to historical averages; and, when compared to other leading global industrial companies, Schlumberger’s valuation at 2.3 times sales looks reasonable.



Although the near-term outlook for oil prices is uncertain, we believe Schlumberger’s long-term growth prospects are attractive. Through its research and development (R&D) program and targeted acquisition strategy, Schlumberger is able to offer advanced and integrated services that are differentiated and improve a customer’s productivity per well. Furthermore, Schlumberger is in the midst of a restructuring program to increase efficiency and reduce capital intensity. Management has proactively adjusted its cost structure to deal with reduced activity levels in the current environment. These efforts have enabled the company to continue generating attractive levels of free cash flow, which provide strategic options for reinvesting in the business or for returning capital to shareholders. Continued industry consolidation should improve the competitive and pricing environment. Halliburton’s proposed acquisition of Baker Hughes would combine the second- and third-largest industry competitors. While weaker demand and a low oil price environment have weighed on Schlumberger’s share price, we believe its valuation, solid balance sheet, cash flow generation, and prospects make it an attractive long-term investment opportunity. We recently added to the position (a 3.1% holding on June 30).



The upcoming challenge for Express Scripts is in specialty drugs, which are used to treat chronic, complex diseases, including cancer, hepatitis, and multiple sclerosis. In the United States, this segment accounts for only 1% of volume, yet 25 to 30% of all drug spending. Biotech companies have maintained pricing power in this segment as disease complexity necessitates innovative and unique therapies. At over ten times the price of the average prescription, however, a need exists to manage the costs of these drugs, which we view as an attractive long-term growth opportunity. Express Scripts, with 30% market share in specialty drugs, is best positioned to help patients receive needed treatments cost effectively. Given the emergence of biosimilars and substitute treatments for older biotech drugs, Express Scripts’ strategy has the potential to influence prices in this segment.



During the second quarter, we increased the Fund’s position in Express Scripts after weighing the company’s fundamental outlook against its valuation. We believe Express Scripts’ strong business franchise, significant scale advantage, financial stability, growth opportunities, and reasonable valuation at 15.5 times forward earnings present an attractive investment opportunity. On June 30, Express Scripts was a 2.1% position in the Fund.

David Rolfe Comments on Schlumberger - Oct 15, 2015

As oil prices entered their third bear market in 15 months, Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB) shares continued to underperform relative to the broad equity indices. We continue to see SLB as a best-in-class service provider that is aggressively investing in its integrated services offerings. We think SLB's unique advantage, which includes its industry leading army of oil and gas engineers, allows them to perform roles usually more associated with asset managers - not necessarily growing by quantity of services rendered, but by increasing the performance and output of the assets under management of their clients (in SLB's case, oil and gas wells), then capturing a fee for driving that performance. In-line with this shift, SLB recently announced the acquisition of Cameron International for close to $15 billion in total consideration. We see Cameron's core competency as being focused on "surface" equipment and services. This complements what we think is SLB's market share leadership in "down hole" services, providing SLB with more resources to continue their shift towards more fully managing E&P client assets. As oil service industry consolidation continues apace, we think SLB will emerge from this cycle in an enviable competitive position, relative to talent-starved E&P clients. While the negativity in SLB shares has been palpable and oil price volatility unseen in a generation, we think the long-term, pent-up earnings power of their business is very attractive relative to today's historically depressed valuations, so we added to our weighting in shares.

Dodge & Cox’s Stock Fund Comments on Schlumberger NV - Feb 16, 2015

Schlumberger (SLB), the world’s leading oil services company, is the most technologically-focused company among the integrated oilfield service companies, with double the R&D budget of its closest peer. We believe that its consistent spending on technology (e.g., enhanced recovery techniques, seismic interpretation, directional drilling) has provided the company with a competitive advantage that is sustainable over time. The company’s innovation efforts have enabled the industry to extract oil and gas from deepwater and shale resources that were previously cost-prohibitive or physically challenging to reach. Schlumberger is the dominant international provider in key markets, including the Middle East and Russia. The majority of its revenues come from outside the United States, and its international business has higher margins than its U.S. operations. We believe that Schlumberger is well positioned to continue to benefit from the long- term relationships it has with international oil companies and producing nations. If the price of oil remains low, the company will face a challenging environment. Relative to competitors, its strong franchises and solid balance sheet and cash flow should allow the company to endure an extended downturn. Weighing this risk with Schlumberger’s valuation and opportunities, we believe that the company (a 2.5% position in the Fund) remains an attractive investment opportunity.

Bill Frels Comments on Schlumberger - Jul 31, 2014

The world’s leading supplier of energy industry technology solutions, Schlumberger (SLB) was a top contributor to performance for both the past quarter and the past six months through June 30, gaining 20.97% and 30.90%, respectively. America’s move to greater energy independence that began more than a decade ago has continued to benefit firms like Schlumberger whose businesses are concentrated in the area of oil and gas exploration. Many factors, however, like global economics and shifting political allegiances can affect both energy prices and exploration budgets. Since 2008, Schlumberger has endeavored to temper the impact of such cyclical influences through major investments in technology innovations, product reliability and better processes. As it gains market share, Schlumberger continues to hold leading market positions in proprietary software, patents, and major equipment.

David Rolfe Comments on Schlumberger - Apr 18, 2014

Schlumberger (SLB) was a top performer during the quarter, continuing its strong performance since the summer of 2012. Since late June 2012 (6/22) through mid-­‐ April 2014, the stock (a holding since late September 2011) is up approximately 60% -­‐ nearly double the S&P 500 Index's gain of 36%. Schlumberger continues to do what it does best – dominate their respective industry and generate industry-­‐ leading growth and cash flow generation. The Company is a leading global provider of oil services. At the risk of repeating an oil service industry cliché, "the easy oil has been found." The technological development being brought to bear to the extremes and complexities in the exploration and development of hydrocarbon energy is relentless. The Company's depth and breadth of their integrated products and services has been at the forefront of the unceasing progress of energy services for decades. Indeed, according to the Company, over the past decade, total E&P capital expenditures have increased by 400%, yet global oil production is up only a scant 15%. Furthermore, in just the last three years, the upstream E&P industry has spent on average $600 billion per year yielding only a net increase in global oil production coming from the shale deposits in North American. Due to the significant advancements in horizontal drilling and multistage fracking natural gas prices are generally one-­‐third of what they are in Europe or Asia. This differential has had 2 profound implications, for instance in the U.S. chemical industry. Chevron Phillips just this month broke ground on a $6 billion ethane cracker plant in Texas – the first petrochemical refinery built in the U.S. in twenty-­‐five years. Circa-­‐2014 finds the Company at the cutting edge in the continued search for unconventional oil and gas, plus in the environmentally challenging area in offshore and deepwater. The Company continues to enhance their capabilities, scale and integration with strategic acquisitions – including of late, Rock Deformation Research (geological software), Saxon (international land drilling), Gushor (petroleum geochemistry and fluid analysis) and GeoKnowledge (exploration risk and resource software). In an inherently cyclical industry, Schlumberger is a beacon of consistent profitability – posting net margins regularly between 12½% and 14½%. Free cash flow over the past twelve months ($5.8 billion) is 90% higher than the last cyclical peak in calendar 2007. Schlumberger is the only peer-­‐related company that has increased margins and generated double-­‐digit growth in operating earnings and earnings per share over the past two years.
