In a report published Monday, Jefferies & Company reiterated its Buy rating on Helmerich & Payne (NYSE: HP), and raised its price target from $55.00 to $59.00.

Jefferies noted, “HP delivered a solid 4QFY12 beat on U.S. onshore cost control and sequential dayrate improvement as older Flex 3 contracts roll to higher rates. Cost control success suggests there is conservatism in our new higher FY2013 EPS of $5.30 (from $4.60). Given confidence on gaining market share and cost management, we look for multiple expansion in this stock, even in a continued soft U.S. onshore market. Reiterate Buy.”

Helmerich & Payne closed on Friday at $49.92.
