What are analysts saying about Shenandoah Telecommunications Co stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Shenandoah Telecommunications Co stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shenandoah Telecommunications Company is a holding company which provides a broad range of telecommunications services through its operating subsidiaries. The Company's operating subsidiaries provide local telephone, cable, Internet access, interexchange facilities, cellular and PCS services, along with many other associated services. " (10/4/2017)
- 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "SHEN has traded down 37% since peak last year, we believe due to temporarily weak NTLS subscriber metrics post acquisition and acquisition-related accounting confusion. We believe the worst of the integration is behind SHEN. Shares trade at a significant discount to the low end of our SOTP valuation, and we think provide an attractive entry point ahead of positive catalysts. Led by a strong mgmt team, SHEN should benefit from improving organic performance, accretive wireless, and possible cable acquisitions." (2/3/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Shenandoah Telecommunications Co (NASDAQ:SHEN) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings 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). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus 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.
