Schlumberger Limited. (SLB) Could Make You Rich!

The Savior

Schlumberger seems to be doing it right. The company is the largest oil-field service provider in the world, and its geographically diversified operations ensure that its growth is not dependent on a particular region. North America accounts to only 1/3 of its revenues.

Shares of Schlumberger appear to be fairly valued, but that doesn’t mean that its shares can’t head north. Analysts expect its annual EPS growth to average around 17% for the next 5 years, and going by the rule of 72, your money could double in a little more than 4 years.

The chart above displays some key financial metrics of Schlumberger and their solid growth trend over the last 5 years.

Conclusion

Chevron and ExxonMobil may be solid bluechips, but I believe that Schlumberger can deliver more returns. It’s international presence and a small peer group allows it to equally take advantage of high growth areas like the Norwegian Sea, the Barents Sea, and even the South China Sea. In short, Schlumberger gets a Foolish Buy Rating, while the other mentioned companies do not.
