Overall, RIG stock is undervalued and needs to experience a change in the stock price of (an average of) 10.56% to be considered “at fair value”. Applying this percentage change to RIG's current price of $3.14 implies a forecasted price of $3.47 Are the RIG Analyst Ratings in Agreeance With Our Conclusion? Analyst Ratings have provided a relatively strong indicator of future price movement, which is why they are used to (hopefully) support our RIG stock forecast. There are a total of 22 analyst ratings for RIG, which are distributed as follows: 2 Buys 15 Holds 5 Sells Overall, the analysts seem to split with the majority of them being neutral. If anything, analysts are slightly more bearish on the RIG stock than they are bullish. This is very similar to our conclusion and price target for the RIG stock as well. This is due to the fact that we have estimated that RIG is near its fair value. As a result of this, I have a "neutral" outlook on the RIG stock, however, if I had to pick either bullish or bearish, I would have to lean to the bearish side. RIG Stock Forecast and Price Prediction Summary Should you buy RIG? Well, based on the overall RIG stock forecast of $3.08 per share, the underlying analysis, and the current price of RIG, I would agree with the analysts and say RIG is a "hold" or potentially even a "sell". Let me know what you think, happy to dive into other aspects of RIG to help you make an informed investment decision.
