Guru Investment Theses on Nabors Industries Ltd

Davis Funds Comments on Nabors Industries Ltd. - Sep 14, 2015

As noted in our year-end 2014 report, the performance of our energy holdings hurt performance late last year. These companies continued to be a contributor to the Fund’s relative performance, both on the upside and the downside, during the first half of 2015. The severe dislocation in the energy markets presented an opportunity to increase our investment in Nabors Industries Ltd. (NYSE:NBR), an independent contract driller known primarily as a leading provider of high specification land drilling rigs, at prices not seen since the 2009 recession.



Much of the turmoil in energy stocks reflects companies across the board struggling to cope with the impact of lower oil and gas prices. Energy companies are seeking to preserve profitability by demanding price cuts from their suppliers who are doing their best to cut their own costs and extract price concessions from their suppliers. In contract drilling, as prices continue to fall across the board, less capable rig operators and smaller companies are losing business to stronger drillers. Given Nabors’ scale and fleet quality, the company is well positioned to capital­ ize on the eventual turn in the cycle.
