What are analysts saying about Chesapeake Energy stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chesapeake Energy stock:
- 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Chesapeake has made great strides to improve its balance sheet/leverage through asset sales, debt exchanges, and other transactions. However, leverage remains higher than peers and a heavy fixed cost burden weighs on cash flow. Additionally, we find CHK's asset portfolio light for a company of its size and assume coverage at Hold, as CHK shares trade near our $6 NAV." (3/22/2017)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Natural gas prices have improved significantly from the level it was trading during early 2016. As one of the most gas weighted company, improvement in the price of the commodity should favour Chesapeake Energy. We appreciate the company’s focus on maintaining a disciplined cost structure. Moreover, the company foresees efficiency gains in its core operating areas. These positives are reflected in its price history. Year-to-date, Chesapeake has comfortably outperformed the Zacks Oil and Gas – U.S Exploration and Production market. However, we believe billions in asset sales are required to fund its program. Also, an anticipated decline in rig activity is likely to hamper production for the firm." (12/27/2016)
