What are analysts saying about Ameren Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ameren Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ameren Corp.'s aging infrastructure may pose risks to system reliability and force it to incur unplanned capital expenditures and operating costs. Stringent environmental regulations and operational risks might be potential growth deterrents. Also its stock is overvalued compared to its historical levels in terms of EV/EBITDA ratio. On the brighter note, the company follows a systematic investment strategy, primarily for growth projects and infrastructure upgrade, which enables it to provide reliable services to customers, besides meeting increasing demand." (10/10/2017)
  • 2. UBS AG analysts commented, "Legislative prospects remain a near-term story (specifically March-April) as the key window for developments on SB190 proposed in Missouri. This could improve investment outlook, in conjunction with construction accounting to limit the drag on earnings from further spend (largely limits lag on related spend). We estimate this could add ~$0.04/sh/yr to 2018E+ as proposed. Bottom line, while Street estimates are already robust, shares could still react well into any positive updates. As such, despite improving sentiment, we see limited positive skew to shares." (2/21/2017)
