What are Wall Street analysts saying about Diamondback Energy stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Diamondback Energy stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Taking into account multiple headwinds, Diamondback's rating is downgraded to 'Strong Sell'. Over the last three months, shares of Diamondback Energy declined more than 15% as a renewed slump in crude prices due to a persistent global supply glut sent a shockwave through the industry. As it is, the Permian pure play has been grappling with pipeline crisis in the region. Diamondback is bearing the brunt of discounted oil prices due to infrastructure bottlenecks in Permian play. In addition, the region's oilfield service cost inflation may affect returns as well. Needless to say, the company faces huge geographic concentration risk. Consequently, Diamondback is viewed as a risky bet as of now. " (1/11/2019)
  • 2. 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)
