What are analysts saying about ONEOK stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ONEOK’s primary growth vehicle is ONEOK Partners, given the steady rise in distribution at the partnership. Further, the company expects to benefit from its efforts to develop new projects through ONEOK Partners. This offers opportunities to the company to grow its long-term fee-based earnings. ONEOK’s proactive approach to reduce capital spending and operating costs will strengthen its financial health and boost performance. Thanks to the positive developments, the current rate of return from the company’s share is higher compared with the return from the broader industry in the last one year. However, apart from the persistent softness in commodity prices, strict regulations and intensifying competition in midstream energy services are the major concerns for the company. Further, rising debt levels pose risks to the company." (4/4/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We have updated our OKE model to reflect the pending OKS acquisition; the deal will create a ~$14B basis step-up, shielding OKE from Fed cash taxes through ~2021 & permitting accelerated dividend growth. These have positive valuation effects & shares have lagged the AMZ by ~10% since our Jan downgrade so we lift our PT to $51 & upgrade to Hold; however, we note OKE's lofty EBITDA multiple & remain below the mid-point of mgmt's 2017 guidance." (2/23/2017)
