What are Wall Street analysts saying about Quanta Services stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Quanta Services stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Quanta Services have underperformed the industry in past one-year time frame. Softer-than-expected margin performance of the oil and gas segment (down 350 bps in the second quarter) due to harsh weather conditions raises concern. Also, lower contribution of a larger project also added to the woes. That said, the company remains optimistic about the second half of 2018 as base business activity seasonally increases and larger pipeline projects speed up the pace. Again, its communications infrastructure services business is also anticipated to benefit from present industry trends. Quanta Services is actively pursuing opportunities with various U.S. telecom and cable MSOs. Moreover, Quanta Services is experiencing solid prospects in its electric power segment. Earnings estimates for 2018 have remained unchanged over the past 60 days, but increased for 2019." (10/23/2018)
  • 2. Cfra analysts commented, "Revenues increased 24% in 2017, due to large projects and acquisitions. In 2018, we see 10.5%-11.0% growth, supported by increased seasonal activity in the second half of 2018, record backlog and a robust project pipeline continuing into 2019. Backlog was $11.5 billion as of 1.4% sequentially. In Q2, revenue increased 20.7%. Electronic Power revenue increased 20.7% due to consumer spending on electric transmission projects." (9/6/2018)
