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. 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. The company’s strong financial position enables it to take such strong investment initiatives. Ameren Corp. has outperformed the industry it belongs to, in the last one year. It also has a handful of projects in the pipeline that are expected to boost its growth trajectory. However, the company's aging infrastructure may pose risks to system reliability and force it to incur unplanned capital expenditures and operating costs. Also its stock is overvalued compared to its historical levels in terms of EV/EBITDA ratio." (9/11/2017)
  • 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)
