What are analysts saying about Costamare stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Costamare stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Costamare Inc. operates as a containership owner chartering its vessels to liner companies. The Company deploys its containership fleet principally under multi-year time charters with leading liner companies that operate regularly scheduled routes between large commercial ports. It also provides a range of shipping services, such as technical support and maintenance, insurance consulting, financial and accounting services. Costamare Inc. is headquartered in Athens, Greece. " (4/27/2017)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are upgrading CMRE to Outperform (from Market Perform) as we believe its risk-reward profile is skewed to the positive, with CMRE well positioned for valuation uplift from the Container market trough, in our view. CMRE is off 63% (vs. the S&P 500 up 0.2%) over the past 18 months as the stock has faced significant downward pressure from liquidity risk, rechartering risk, counterparty risk, a dividend cut, and a soft rechartering outlook amid the containership trough. Given that significant equity downside (to 0.4x NAV), we believe CMRE is an attractive container recovery play, while we also believe the severity of its headwinds should gradually ease over time, with CMRE making a number of recent moves to reposition its intermediate-term liquidity and stabilize its balance sheet. While we remain broadly cautious around global containerized trade, we think Street expectations have generally fallen to match that outlook, with the risk/reward associated with a bottoming outlook potentially skewed to the upside, at least longer-term. We effectively think CMRE has most of its bad news priced into it at this point, and while continued pressure within its peer group or a more substantive outline for a border tax regime still linger as potential headwinds (particularly the latter), we think the longer-term recover potential outweighs them, and we reiterate our Outperform rating with a valuation range of $8-9/share."
