    "Overweight" with a $31 price target?
    I thought the idea was to buy low and sell high, not the opposite.

    11802571: Can't agree more, but this comes from Morgan Stanley, principal underwriter of the RIGP IPO. I, for one, do not believe in coincidences. Interesting how they can wring an "overweight" out when they rank the rest of the industry sell or hold at best. Maybe they are sitting with some unsold shares on their hands????

    Wells Fargo has made it a buy in my accounts as well.

    "Overweight" with a $31 price target? Either Morgan Stanley means a $41 price target or they just wanted to see who's paying attention with RIG already above $37 this morning (now over $38.60)? Clearly todays MS "Overweight" has motivated buyers to rush in and purchase RIG 20% over that $31 price target.

    Are you freaking kidding me? Everyone has an attention span of a goldfish? This is TRANSOCEAN PARTNERS, not Transocean.

    Entire mess with the names. Probably half of the market assign target to wrong company.

     

    and then RIGP went up 2.6% and RIG 3.3% ...

     

    Tomorrow will RIG probably go back down and RIGP another 2.5% up :)
