Barclays reiterated its Overweight rating on Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB) while reducing its price target from $92 to $90.

Barclays commented, "Schlumberger offered an operational update to 4Q this morning, guiding down earnings expectations by $0.05-$0.07 per share. The lower guidance was driven by stronger-than-usual seasonality in the North Sea and Western Siberia, contractual delays in North Africa and the accelerating drop-off in NAM activity. The market's initial reaction today (-6% versus OSX -1.5% intraday) seems overdone to us; we don't see a change to our thesis and would use the weakness to add to positions."

Schlumberger closed at $68.91 on Friday.
