What are analysts saying about ONEOK stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In last three months shares of ONEOK Inc. have gained more than the industry it belongs to. ONEOK is poised to gain from increased drilling activities in the basin where this company has well placed assets. The increase in fee-based earnings, acquisition of ONEOK Partners, capital-growth projects and increasing drilling activities from the producers will further boost the performance of the company. However, strict regulations and intensifying competition in midstream energy services are the major concerns for the company." (10/17/2017)
  • 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."
