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, "Shares of CONSOL Energy have gained lower than the industry in the last six months. CONSOL's dependence on a limited group of customers for bulk sales of coal and operation of traditionally risky underground mines are headwinds. Dependence on third party assets for natural gas transportation and highly competitive natural space also remain risks. CONSOL’s focus on Exploration and Production(E&P) business continues to yield positive results. CONSOL has taken initiatives to separate its mining and E&P divisions. Thanks to its solid asset base, it is well poised to achieve the E&P production targets. CONSOL continues to lower its debt level, thanks to its free cash flow generation capability." (10/10/2017)
  • 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)
