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 has outperformed the industry in past one-year time frame. The company expects a strong rebound in its end markets as it enters a renewed multiyear up-cycle for businesses. Also, its communications infrastructure services business is 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 and 2019 have remained unchanged over the past 30 days. However, 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." (11/14/2018)
  • 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)
