Shares of oilfield services giant Baker Hughes (BHI) were higher Wednesday ahead of its fourth-quarter financial results.
The Street is expecting a loss of 12 cents a share on revenue of $2.4 billion for the period.
Investors will likely focus on the company's North America segment results as exploration and production activity picked up following the historic OPEC agreement in November. That bodes well for oilfield services companies like Baker Hughes, which will get more contracts to set up oil wells.
