Would any of the fools be able to comment on what is leading to Transocean (RIG) not gathering momentum inspite of stead increase in revenues and increase in the backlog revenues. These are some of the favourable news articles on RIG

•Daewoo's (DWOTF.OB) securing of a $528M order for a drillship from Transocean (RIG)
•The worldwide fleet of drillships has more than doubled to 92 over the past five years, and they will be joined by 76 others over the next four years, making them the fastest-growing offshore drilling segment.

On Tuesday, October 15, Transocean (RIG) announced that it was awarded a five-year contract for the construction of a newbuild ultra-deepwater drillship by Chevron (CVX) that includes a shipyard delivery scheduled for Q2 2016. RIG says the new booking is expected to bring in $1.1B in revenue while the rig will cost ~$725M to build.

•Global oil demand is expected to climb to 96.7M bbl/day by 2018, an average growth of 1.2%/year, a level industry officials such as Maersk's (AMKAF.PK, AMKBY.OB) Claus Hemmingsen say opens doors for more remote offshore developments.
The current EPS estimate for Transocean stands at $5.3 for 2014. With a modest PE of 12, Transocean shares should be trading at $63. Currently trading at $45.
Not to mention the dividend of $ 2.24 or 5% yield.

May be we need Tom or David Gardner to bless this stock at their current round of stock advisor....Please put some focus or comment why my analysis doesn't hold true
