In the said letter, Miller Value Partners highlighted a few stocks and Nabors Industries Ltd (NYSE:NBR) is one of them. Nabors Industries Ltd (NYSE:NBR) is an oil and gas drilling company. Year-to-date, Nabors Industries Ltd (NYSE:NBR) stock lost 78.1% and on November 3rd it had a closing price of $31.55. Here is what Miller Value Partners said:
“Our largest detractor during the quarter was Nabors Industries (NBR), which was down approximately 30%, weighed heavily by the recent pullback in oil prices. As we highlighted in our last quarterly letter, we see the company making significant advances in improving their balance sheet and lowering their cost structure to weather the current weak industry conditions. We believe Nabors’s normalized earnings and cash flow are significantly higher than current levels and upside potential could be multiples of the current share price.”
