What are Wall Street analysts saying about Methanex stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Methanex stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Methanex has outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. Methanex should gain from healthy demand fundamentals for methanol. We are also optimistic about its Louisiana project, which is expected to create significant value for shareholders and meaningfully contribute to cash generation. " (10/3/2017)
- 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We see a significant increase in MEOH share value over the next two years should the company choose to execute, on the suggestion of its largest shareholder, a more aggressive approach toward share repurchase. This would push repurchase to the limits of its FCF until its value per share better reflects methanol replacement costs of about $1,100/mt." (3/28/2017)
- 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Methanol prices settled sharply higher again, in sharp contrast to relatively cautious investor sentiment. Given an expected average FCF yield before dividends of 10% over the next several years, we continue to expect the next fundamental catalysts for Methanex shares to be decisions this summer on the cadence of buybacks and appetite for investing in new capacity... North America methanol prices have settled at $499/t and Asia prices at $500/t. Pricing continues to settle higher than we expected, and supports the argument that Asia demand is coming in stronger than we had initially expected for this year, rather than pricing simply being distorted by inventory dynamics. At current levels, we believe demand destruction is a more significant risk, particularly for 2H17. Prices should retreat into 2018 as new supply enters the market." (2/27/2017)

Methanex (NASDAQ:MEOH) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
