In the said letter, Horos Asset Management highlighted a few stocks and Borr Drilling Limited (NYSE:BORR) is one of them. Borr Drilling engages in the provision of drilling services to the oil and gas exploration and production industry. Year-to-date, Borr Drilling Limited (NYSE:BORR) stock lost 86.7% and on June 24th it had a closing price of $1.18. Here is what Horos Asset Management said:
“In addition, despite their significant declines, we decided not to add on our investments in Shelf Drilling or Borr Drilling—the two offshore drilling companies that remain in our portfolio— in view of the foreseeable impact that low oil prices will have on oil companies’ capital expenditures. While it is true that these low prices and the current tightness in capital markets may be the tipping point for a slowdown or a decline in US shale oil production and, ultimately, an oil supply that falls short of demand —leading to higher oil prices and increased E&P capex— we believe that it does not make sense to take certain risks at a time when investment opportunities abound.”
