Draghi said in his remarks that declining oil prices are "unambiguously positive."

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates ENSCO PLC as a "hold" with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate ENSCO PLC (ESV) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed - some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its growth in earnings per share, revenue growth and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself."
