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. Its acreage in Marcellus shale play poise it for major growth potential. Cabot continues to improve upon its industry-leading cost structure. Driven by operational efficiencies, the company was able to reduce its 2019 finding and development costs by 5.13%. It is committed to returning more than half of its free cash flow to shareholders through share buybacks and dividends. However, being a natural gas-weighted company, Cabot continues to reel under the effects of the commodity price struggles. Cabot’s average realized natural gas price fell 36.3% y/y to $2.05 per Mcf in Q4. Struggling with lawsuits & denied a water permit, Cabot’s Constitution Pipeline Company is likely to be delayed substantially or cancelled. Hence, the stock warrants a cautious stance." (3/11/2020)
