What are analysts saying about Scana Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Scana Corporation stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "SCANA Corp.’s fourth quarter 2016 earnings missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate owing to higher operating expenses.  Moreover, SCANA Corp.’s price chart shows that it has lagged the Zacks categorized Utility-Electric power industry over the last three months. Construction costs and delays could impact the timing of rate base growth, earnings, cash flow and the quality of the balance sheet. However, SCANA is well positioned in a positive regulatory environment, having a low risk business with outstanding customer growth and operational efficiency. The company also has an attractive and consistent dividend payout. This is noteworthy amidst the macro risks wherein most oil giants are cutting their dividends. Going forward, we expect modest growth to continue thanks to the utility’s improving electric margins and rate increases." (2/20/2017)

  • Mizuho analysts commented, "We're downgrading SCG to Neutral from Buy and resetting our target price to $68 per share (vs. $80 previously).Our investment thesis on Scana is changing for the worse following news that its construction consortium, spearheaded by Westinghouse and financially backed by Toshiba, may no longer be economically viable and that the onus for completing its two new nuclear units could now fall on Scana. Consequently, we think its time to step aside until there is much better clarity about ultimate costs and earnings power." (2/14/2017)
