Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Diamondback Energy stock:
  • 1. 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)
