Valaris (Buy, TP: USD8.00) - Consensus remains too high

With most contracts in its fleet status report being announced earlier or widely expected, it was mostly changes to duration, start dates and gaps driving our estimate changes. 2020e EBITDA is lowered by 9% to USD265m while there are limited changes on our 2021e EBITDA. Going forward, we consider Valaris well placed on multiple new long-term contract jobs for floaters with dayrates around the USD250k level or below. We also see it as well placed to add jackups long-term. We reiterate BUY and a USD8 target price.
