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 is expected to benefit from commencement of the Hilli Episeyo. The company's third-quarter results, scheduled to be announced on Nov 5, are likely to get a boost from the operation of Hilli Episeyo as well as an improving shipping market. Third-quarter TCE (Time Charter Equivalent) is expected to at least double the second-quarter figure of $19,600. The company's measures to reward shareholders through dividends are also encouraging. To this end, Golar LNG hiked its dividend to 12.5 cents per share from the previous 5 cents. Despite such tailwinds, the massive increase in operating expenses is another cause for concern.  Such high costs might limit Golar LNG's bottom line in the third quarter as well. Its high debt levels are concerning too. In fact, shares of the company have underperformed its industry in the last six months due to the headwinds." (11/13/2018)
  • 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)
