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 beat earnings expectations in its Q1 report. The company benefitted from its large acreage holdings in the fast-growing Marcellus Shale. Production from the region grew 25% during the quarter and Cabot expects to increase output by 20% in 2019 on the back of its impressive portfolio. Cabot's manageable leverage and investor-friendly moves are other positives. The company is committed to returning more than half of its free cash flow to stock holders through share buybacks and dividends. Bringing good news for investors, the natural gas explorer raised quarterly dividend by 29%. However, being a natural gas-weighted company, Cabot continues to reel under the effects of the commodity's price struggles. Lowering of annual production guidance keep us worried. Considering these factors, upside from current levels appear limited." (5/20/2019)
