The company has a diversified product portfolio, specialty service capabilities and proprietary technological expertise. Other positives for FMC Technologies include a strong backlog position, growing international operations and a favorable outlook for subsea activity levels. However, we have a difficult time justifying a sufficient enough potential return to support an Outperform rating.
