What are analysts saying about FirstEnergy Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FirstEnergy Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of FirstEnergy's have declined compared with the industry’s gain in the last twelve months. FirstEnergy’s higher debt/capital ratio compared with peers may further drive up its cost of capital in the rising interest rate environment. In addition, stringent regulatory norms, mild weather and intensifying competition are some of the headwinds. The company’s modernization drive and new generation asset additions will further strengthen its service reliability and lead to customer retention. This has led to its ambitious “Energizing the Future” plan aimed at upgrading and expanding its transmission capabilities. The company is working to transform itself into a regulated company by mid of 2018." (8/8/2017)
  • 2. Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (The) analysts commented, "Following significant underperformance, with FE ' versus the XLU ' down 10%/19%/27% over the last 6, 12 and 24 months, we upgrade FE to Buy given (1) an attractive relative valuation on a sum of the parts basis ' even after assuming a drag related to the non-regulated or competitive segment, and (2) potential positive catalysts which highlight the value of the core regulated segments. We recognize challenges exist for FE's merchant power segment. But with FE discussing restructuring options, based on EIX's experience in 2012-2014, we view a potential resolution as a positive catalyst, driving an SOTP implied total return of 14% vs. 2% for peers under coverage." (3/23/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "FE reported in-line quarterly estimates and, keeping with their plan to become a regulated utility, took a $9.2B charge associated with the write-down of their competitive assets. While we believe management will be successful in transitioning the company we struggle to see the stock achieving a "regulatedtype" valuation during this period and maintain our Hold rating."
