What are analysts saying about Spark Energy stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Spark Energy stock:
FBR & Co analysts commented, "Solid 2017 guidance. SPKE provided 2017 adjusted EBITDA guidance of $90M– $100M (versus $80M–$85M for 2016), implying 15% YOY growth at the midpoint of the range. The lower end of guidance is modestly ahead of the Street consensus of $89M. The guidance assumes customer acquisition costs of $27M–$33M, higher than our prior forecast of $21.7M, implying slightly better revenues and/or margins than we had forecasted. In addition, the guidance does not include any potential contribution from drop-downs or acquisitions. Management has discussed its intention to pursue at least one acquisition in 2017, but whether that manifests from buying a customer book or an entire company remains to be seen. We believe the latter would have the potential to move the stock if similar in size to either the recent Major or Provider acquisitions, obviously partly depending on multiple, geography, and cost structure."
