Transocean (RIG) -2.9% premarket after Deutsche Bank cuts shares to Sell from Hold, pointing to yesterday's fleet status report which showed a 7% increase in 2013 downtime and the first estimate of 2014 downtime is up an additional 5% vs. 2013. Meanwhile, costs are rising even as rates are flattening. The firm also believes most potential catalysts have been realized.

    DB continues to demonstrate how little they know about offshore drilling. Either incompetency or malintent to drive the price down for their majore customers.

    Many analysts continue to see only the "trees" and miss the forest...go figure.

    Problems are recently reported with GE safety equipment. .Transocean has 55 rigs that have to be repaired. Downtime per rig will be about 3 weeks. Who is going to bear the cost for this is not known yet.
    I suppose that the analyst of the Deutsche Bank was not informed about this matter.
