What are analysts saying about CONSOL Energy stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CONSOL Energy stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CONSOL Energy’s focus on E&P assets is reaping benefits and the company is gaining from record natural gas production levels as well as the drop in production costs per Mcfe. The company is also working on lowering costs and it expects more cost savings in the future. The company also boasts a strong liquidity position, which allowed it to pay down its revolving credit facility and facilitated development of its core assets. CONSOL continues to pursue its strategy of separating the coal and E&P business. Besides, the company continues to implement its hedge program and some volume of natural gas production is hedged through 2020, to protect against fluctuating prices. On the flip side, dependence on a limited group of customers for bulk sales of coal and operation of traditionally risky underground mines are headwinds. Shares of the company underperformed the broader industry in the last one year." (3/21/2017)
  • 2. KLR Group analysts commented, "We are decreasing our CNX target price $1 to $24 per share due to higher cash G&A expense. Our composite weighted average cost-of-capital values the coal business at ~6x next year's cash generation (CNX Coal Resources (CNXC, $18.95, NR) market valuation)." (2/1/2017)
