1. Schlumberger (SLB - Get Report)

Company Profile: Schlumberger supplies technology, project management and information services to the oil and gas industry.

Current Share Price: $84.57 (May 11)

Potential Upside: 89% based on a price target of $160

Morgan Stanley's Take: Analyst Ole Slorer writes that Middle East business looks set to accelerate. Slorer expects two mega-capacity expansion projects in Saudi Arabia and Iraq "to soak up services in the region and help drive Middle East pricing and margins."

"Our broad thesis remains that the pendulum should swing back to international from North America," Slorer writes, "and we view Schlumberger as one of the best services plays on Middle East/international exposure."
