What are analysts saying about MasTec stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MasTec’s first-quarter revenues and record earnings per share delivered year-over-year improvement and also beat the Zacks Consensus Estimates on both counts. Further, the company’s record 18-month backlog as of Mar 31, 2017 increased approximately 5% compared with Dec 31, 2016 to $5.7 billion. MasTec acquired SEFNCO Communications, Inc., that will help expand its geographic and customer capacity in the wireline/fiber deployment market. The company will gain from solid prospects for its communications business. large industry awards and solid backlog. It also outperformed the Zacks categorized Building-Heavy Construction industry in the past one year. However, MasTec's results will be hurt by lower commodity prices, general oil and gas environment in Canada and delay of large transmission projects. Fluctuations in foreign currency and strong competition also remain headwinds." (5/11/2017)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We reiterate a BUY rating for MTZ following upside for Q4 and 2017 guidance above expectations. Oil and Gas looks to be the primary driver of growth again in 2017, but with a cessation of the EBITDA headwinds in Electrical Transmission enhancing the profitability outlook as well. Importantly the long term view for Communications looks constructive especially for gigabit fiber and 5G deployments. While management was cautious with its commentary on Oil and Gas margins in 2H17, we believe upside could materialize in this segment if MTZ can execute at a level similar to 2016. We are increasing our estimates and our price target is raised to $48 from $42. Investment highlights MTZ reported Q4/16 earnings results of $1341.9M in revenues and adjusted EPS of $0.70, ahead of our estimates and consensus of $1302.8M/$0.54 and $1310M/ $0.54 respectively and guidance of $1.3B in revenues and EPS of $0.54. Upside was from strength in Oil and Gas and a return to profitability for the Electrical Transmission segment, which was EBITDA positive for the first time in eight quarters." (2/24/2017)
  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On Thursday, February 23 after the close, MasTec announced 4Q16 results that were well ahead of our and consensus expectations and provided 2017 EPS guidance that is 12% above consensus estimates. In summary, the strong quarter and outlook were principally driven by the outstanding performance within the company's oil and gas segment, where the company has mostly completed the Dakota Access pipeline and just recently started construction on the Rover pipeline. MTZ has a high level of visibility into 2017, and specifically within the O&G segment, could become a major beneficiary of a pro-energy infrastructure Administration in Washington over the next few years. We will have more details following the company's conference call this morning." (2/24/2017)
