What are analysts saying about ConocoPhillips stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ConocoPhillips stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Being a firm in the exploration and production industry, ConocoPhillips’ profitability has expectedly been hit by this weakly priced oil and gas market. As a result, the company’s revenue has been decreasing at a CAGR of 33.8% over the last three years. We are concerned about the company’s escalating debt levels. It is to be noted that at the end of first-quarter 2017, ConocoPhillips had only $3.1 billion in cash and cash equivalents, while its debt had climbed to $26.4 billion. Moreover, the company’s cash flow is expected to remain tight even after the capital-expenditure reductions. Hence, we do not see any improvement in the company’s upstream operations unless there’s a recovery in commodity prices." (7/17/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "However, there are pure plays delivering 15+ percent pa multiyear cash flow growth from a deep shale inventory that [has] also sold off unfairly. The competition is fierce," (3/30/2017)
