Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc. (NYSE:DO) drills offshore oil and gas wells on a contract basis. The Company is a world-wide deep water driller that serves markets that include the deep water, harsh environment, conventional semisubmersible and jack-up markets.
Diamond's stock range is defined by its calculated support defined at $63.70 and by the resistance level at $70.30; the stock is clearly over-extended from support, making it harder for participants to establish fresh longs.
