Top Ranked Articles about Ensco PLC

FPA Capital Fund Comments on Helmerich & Payne Inc and Ensco PLC
During the first quarter of 2015, we swapped our position in Ensco (“ESV”) for Helmerich and Payne (HP) (“H&P”) because we believe they offered similar upside but H&P has less downside risk. H&P is the country’s biggest and most profitable onshore drilling contractor. At the time of our decision, H&P’s dividend yield was smaller (4.55% vs 10.37%) but it was still substantial and more secure than ESV’s dividend. Since our swap, Ensco cut its dividend exactly 80% (as of the end of the first quarter H&P yielded 4.04% vs 2.85% for ESV). We agree with ESV’s decision to cut its dividend. The market was not valuing the company based on this large dividend and there might be better ways to use those funds today such as buying back shares or purchasing distressed assets on the cheap.
