Morgan Stanley’s Ole Slorer and Igor Levi explain why�Schlumberger (SLB) could gain more than 70%:Getty Images
Schlumberger�guided earnings to grow at a 17-20% [compound annual growth rate] to $9-10/sh by 2017, ahead of our current estimate of a 15% [compound annual growth rate]. However, the company�� estimates are based on just a 6% industry spending growth level, which is about in line with our long-term expectations of 4-6%.
Schlumberger has historically converted 30% of its EBITDA or 75% of [earnings per share] into free cash flow, meaningfully above that of its peers, while trading at a�free cash flow yield of 2-4%.� Currently shares are trading at the high-end of the range making valuation compelling. Applying a conservative 3.5% yield to the company�� 2017 EPS estimate of $9-10/sh, its 75%�free cash flow conversion and discounting it back 2 years at 10%, we arrive at our new $168 PT. If�Schlumberger is able to bring this growth 6-12 months forward and its�free cash flow yield approaches its historical 3% average, we arrive at our $200 bull case.
While Schlumberger has a free-cash-flow yield of about 3.5%, Cameron International’s (CAM) and Dril-Quip’s (DRQ) are just over 3% and�FMC Technologies‘ (FTI) is just under 3%. Halliburton (HAL) has a free-cash-flow yield of just over 1%.
Shares of Schlumberger have gained 2.1% to $116.19 at 2:06 p.m., while Cameron has doped 0.78% to $66.71, Dril-Quip has fallen 1.1% to $105.62, FMC Technologies has declined 2.2% to $60.20 and�Halliburton is up 0.2% at $69.57.

Energy: Schlumberger Ltd. (NYSE: SLB)�crushed earnings by an astonishing 50.9% last quarter. With Mexico changing its policy on oil exploration, the oil field services leader may see continued strong earnings growth in the years ahead. The consensus price target for the stock is posted at $96. Investors are paid a 1.5% dividend.
- [By Matt DiLallo]
Along with announcing earnings, both Halliburton (NYSE: HAL ) and Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB ) announced multi-billion-dollar stock buybacks. With so much money on the line, investors have to ask if this is the right move for these two oil-field service giants. Are these stocks cheap enough to warrant the buybacks or should these companies consider other options for those funds?
