What are Wall Street analysts saying about Diamondback Energy stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Diamondback Energy stock: 1. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We believe FANG is an underappreciated return of capital story with significant potential to ramp up return of capital to shareholders in 2020. We see a likely scenario of the compan y increasing its dividend and establishing a share buyback as our 2020 FCF outlook crystallizes. We estimate FANG trades at a 2020 FCF yield of 5.4% at $60/BBL WTI, above the peer group average of ~4.6% while FANG is expected to record stronger production growth and at a cheaper valuation than peers. FANG’s FCF Profile: We estimate FANG will generate ~ $908MM of FCF in 2020, providing significant potential to accelerate return of capital to shareholders. Recall, FANG established a $0.50/Year dividend in 1Q18 and increased the dividend to $0.75/Year in 1Q19 as it begins to establish a track record of dividend growth." (3/29/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Diamondback Energy focuses on growth through a combination of acquisitions and active drilling in the lucrative Permian Basin spread over west Texas and New Mexico. Since the 2012 IPO, the Permian pure play’s annual production and cash flow per share have witnessed CAGRs of 76% and 30%, respectively. Diamondback's twin acquisitions of Energen Corporation and Ajax Resources – totaling more than $10 billion – are expected to further strengthen its Permian position, with multi-year production growth prospects, a wide inventory of drill-ready locations and the promise of billions worth of synergies. However, service cost inflation and takeaway capacity constraints in the Permian have emerged as concerns. Hence, investors are advised to wait for a better entry point before buying shares in Diamondback." (2/8/2019) 3. Williams Capital analysts commented, "We raise our PT to $162 (from $156) on our increased RNAV and revised esmates. Despite the upside poten al to our PT and our posive view on the assets, management and upcoming cat alysts, we reaﬃrm our Hold rang. We believe it is prudent to wait for a beer entry point given the current valuaon and risk/reward proﬁle. Never theless, we expect shares to outperform in today’s trading on the solid 2Q18 results/update and accreve acquision." (8/9/2018) Has Diamondback Energy been receiving favorable news coverage?
