Citigroup’sMark May and team consider what Amazon.com’s (AMZN) decision to handle more shipping in-house means for FedEx (FDX) and United Parcel Service (UPS):

Bloomberg News

Amazon is undergoing a transformation of its retail logistics network in order to support growth, benefit from scale advantages and new lower cost alternatives, and improve customer satisfaction. This creates concerns of a significant new investment cycle and of a change in the competitive landscape of the U.S. small package market…

Amazon Still Needs FedEx & UPS: Our analysis finds that FedEx and UPS delivered ~28% of Amazons U.S. packages in 2015 (likely skewed toward Prime), Amazon currently makes up ~5% of domestic volume at each carrier and ~15% of FedEx and UPS incremental domestic volume growth in 2015. While Amazon is actively diversifying its last mile fulfillment, its rapid growth and FedEx/UPS delivery scale suggests these interdependent partnerships will remain for the foreseeable future (e.g., we estimate that 23% of Amazons volume in the U.S. will go through these two partners in 2016, with volume growth of ~10% comparable to 2015)…

    4) Saudi Dayrates Steady. The lack of further dayrate erosion on the bulk of the Saudi jackup contracts was a pleasant surprise (rates held flattish). Noble, Ensco, Hercules Offshore, Rowan (RDC) saw pricing revised flat to down 5% (we view this as a win). With these contracts set to revert back to previous levels in 2017 (up 10-40%) we have our doubts barring a sharp recovery in the jackup market.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Shares of Transocean (RIG) are getting hit today but not nearly as hard as other offshore drillers, including Ensco (ESV), Diamond Offshore Drilling (DO), Atwood Oceanics (ATW) and Noble (NE). The reason: Transocean announced the results of a tender offer to buy back debt. RBC’sKurt Hallead andBenjamin Owens explain:

    Transocean’s Sedco 714 offshore platform in dry dock Bloomberg News

    : RIG announced it has received valid tender offers from investors to repurchase ~$943mn of face value debt for $845mn, or a 90% weighted average discount. We view the move as a positive as it enhances the company’s liquidity and flexibility…

    Nearer-term debt maturities look manageable:Transocean has ~$2.8bn in debt maturing between now and YE18: $1bn in 2016, $0.6bn in 2017, and $1.2bn in 2018…

    With cash on hand of $2.6bn, $0.2bn in excess proceeds from the note offering, our forecast is for aggregate 2016/17 FCF of $0.6bn, and an undrawn $3.0bn revolver we thinkTransocean has ample liquidity (>$6.5bn) to manage through these debt maturities…

    Still not interested in raising equity at this time:Transocean has essentially ruled out doing an equity offering at this time, indicating it feels confident with the capital structure.

    Transocean said it would explore other financing options such as secured borrowing against its new drillships with 10-year contracts, if necessary, before doing an equity offering.

    Jefferies analyst Eduardo Royes and team argue that Atwood Oceanics and Diamond Offshore drilling “intrigue, but for conflicting reasons.” They explain:

    Atwoodscreens attractive on both a normalized multiple and DCF (heavily driven by normalized) basis, suggesting it could be a good play for recovery. An improving offshore sentiment and catalyst potential (e.g., term contract on the Osprey) could benefitAtwood as well. However, shares are very expensive in the tro

    Goldman Sachs analystWaqar Syed and team see “green shoots [appearing] in the distance” for oil-field-services sector…just not offshore drillers. They explain why they cut Atwood Oceanics (ATW) and Noble (NE) to sell, where they join Transocean (RIG):

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Shares of Noble have gained 5% to $9.32 at 1:59, but that appears downright disappointing next to Seadrill (SDRL), Transocean (RIG) and Atwood Oceanics (ATW). Transocean has climbed 7.2% to $11.28, Seadrill has jumped 7.6% to $3.40, and Atwood Oceanics has soared 9.9% to $12.31.
