The company is a diversified energy company consisting of the following six reportable business segments: Utility; Pipeline and Storage; Exploration and Production; International; Energy Marketing; and Timber. " (2/15/2017)

  • Argus analysts commented, "We believe that NFG provides a unique long-term investment opportunity, as it combines the stability of a regulated gas utility with the growth potential of an E&P and midstream business. However, losses in upstream E&P operations, driven by low commodity prices, are currently outweighing steady performance in the company’s gas utility, distribution and transmission businesses. Along with its first-quarter report, the company narrowed its FY16 EPS guidance range, excluding past and projected reserve impairment charges, to $2.75-$3.00 from $2.70-$3.15 per share. We are raising our FY16 non-GAAP EPS estimate to $2.97 from $2.85. Our estimate is near the top of management’s revised $2.75-$3.00 guidance range. Our non-GAAP EPS forecast for FY17 is $3.20. NFG will report fiscal 2Q16 results on April 28." (4/10/2016)
