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 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, it recently hiked its dividend to 12.5 cents per share from the previous 5 cents. However, the company reported lower-than-expected results in the second quarter of 2018. Results were hurt by softness in shipping activity. The massive increase in operating expenses is another cause for concern. Operating expenses soared 50.3% in the second quarter. Such high costs might limit Golar LNG's bottom line in the third quarter as well. Moreover, shares of the company have underperformed its industry in the last six months." (8/28/2018) 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) Are investors shorting Golar LNG?
