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, "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)

Consensus Ratings for Ameren Corporation (NYSE:AEE) (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.
