What are Wall Street 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."
