The stock has been beaten down but they now have almost all their deep water rigs back on line and the last one should be operational shortly.

Summary: Transocean (RIG) has been beaten down not only from bad press but from having a major portion of their revenue producing rigs brought off line for inspection and updating. These will all be back on line by the beginning of the year and in full production by mid next year. As the investing community realizes that legal concerns from the BP spill are being abated and the new increased earnings and revenue figures hit the press you should see a lot of investors come back and get on board. This is one where those who get on board early will reap the benefits not only in the short run but the long run as well. Buy in at today's prices and you can expect a 23% - 27% annual rate of return within the next 5 years
