What are analysts saying about Ameren Corporation stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Despite focusing on expanding its renewable portfolio, increasing stringency of government regulations to ensure clean power generation remains a major concern. Again, the company will have to invest substantially in its generation systems to comply with EPA’s climate policy, which may subsequently impact profitability. Also, operational risks and fluctuations in commodity price might hinder growth in the future. Moreover, the company underperformed the Zacks categorized Utility-Electric Power industry, on a year-to-date basis. 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 its customers, besides meeting increasing demand." (4/18/2017)
  • 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)
