What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cabot Oil & Gas stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cabot Oil & Gas stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation is an independent gas exploration company with producing properties mainly in the continental U.S. Cabot have lost 24.3% over the past year, underperforming the Zacks Oil & Gas U.S Exploration and Production industry, which has decreased 19.7% over the same period. Being a natural gas-weighted company, Cabot continues to reel under the effects of the commodity's price struggles. The company has cut its annual production growth guidance to 17% from 20% previously.  At the same time, it raised full-year 2019 capex view at the mid-point to $810 million, from a prior view of $800 million. Struggling with lawsuits & denied a water permit, Cabot’s Constitution Pipeline Company is likely to be delayed substantially or cancelled. Considering these factors, Cabot is unlikely to return to favor anytime soon." (1/3/2020)
