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, "Diamondback's strategic acreage position in the low-cost high-margin Permian Basin bodes well for the Texas-based explorer and is responsible for its robust production growth. Diamondback has been strategically working to further boost its presence in the shale play. In this regard, it has entered into two deals to buy Ajax Resources and Energen Corporation. The deals will be immediately accretive to Diamondback’s production, earnings and cash flows and bring about various financial and operational synergies. FANG has also raised its full year production outlook and expects a 45% increase from the output levels of 2017. However, there are worries about the pipeline capacity constraints in the Permian, which compels FANG to sell its products at a discounted rate. Lack of geographical diversification aggravates the concern. This accounts for the company's 'Hold' rating." (11/13/2018) 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.
