TDW has been upgraded by Zacks to a “hold” rating. Tidewater’s 50-day moving average stands at $2.17 and its 200-day moving average is $3.47. Tidewater caters to the energy industry, which in essence, means that they are heavily tied to the oil industry. Their fleet is meant to provide services to the oil companies drilling offshore. Naturally, when one industry is positively affected by economic growth, other industries closely related to the benefitting industry will also benefit from the change. Recently OPEC, which produces a third of the world’s oil, has reached a deal to cut production among its members. This supply decrease is expected to lead to an increase in the price of oil and thus boost the oil industry including Tidewater Inc.
