What are analysts saying about Methanex Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Methanex Corporation 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 and Company 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)
