What are Wall Street analysts saying about Golar LNG stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Golar LNG stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Golar LNG's fourth-quarter results are likely to get a boost on the back of improved shipping activity. Fourth-quarter TCE (Time Charter Equivalent) is expected in the band of $70,000 - $80,000, almost double the third quarter figure of $41,200. The company is already seeing a significant increase in free cash flow from the onset of Hilli Episeyo operation as well as other positive factors. We are also encouraged by the company's efforts to reward shareholders in the form of dividend payments. Recently, Golar LNG raised its dividend payment to 15 cents per share from the previous 12.5 cents. However, the company's high operating expenses are expected to dent bottom-line growth in the fourth quarter. Moreover, the shipping space is highly competitive and it can become a hindrance to growth. In fact, shares of the company have underperformed the industry it belongs to in the past six months." (11/29/2018)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We are updating our forward estimates based on management’s recent guidance for 7(a) loan originations in 2018 and that factor’s impact on our expectations for timing/size of a secondary offering, as well as modest adjustments to cost of capital from the recent securitization. We are maintaining our rating of NEWT shares at Outperform and raising our target price to $20/share (previously $19) based on what we expect to be a well-covered dividend in 2017 ($1.64/share) and expectations of dividend growth in 2018 (current projection of $1.76/share, though management guidance is only $1.69/share). Risk/reward: We believe the primary risk is a reduction in the gross premium paid for the SBA 7(a) guaranteed loans – though this premium has been very stable over the last 5 years. We believe the downside risk in NEWT shares is (28)%, with upside price return potential of +35%. See page 2 for our risk/reward analysis." (12/12/2017)
