What are analysts saying about Babcock stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Babcock stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. offers energy technology and services primarily for the nuclear, fossil and renewable power markets as well as a premier advanced technology and mission critical defense contractor. Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. is headquartered in Charlotte, N.C. " (8/14/2017)
- 2. UBS AG analysts commented, "BW had a challenging Q4, as previously disclosed execution issues on a renewable plant in Europe worsened and spilled over to other European projects. It is our understanding that BW shifted managers to the troubled project, which then led to weak execution in other areas. New management was brought in, and 2017 guidance now reflects European renewables projects that are expected to be completed at a lower margin/or losses, depending on the project. Looking forward, we see value beyond the 2017 transition, as we forecast earnings to rebound in 2018, driven by expected normalizing execution in renewables, growth in industrial exposure, and a steadying in the coal business."

Consensus Ratings for Babcock (NYSE:BW) (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.
