What are analysts saying about SCANA stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Westinghouse Electric Co., which is presently constructing a nuclear plant for SCANA, has filed for bankruptcy. Although Westinghouse is anticipated to finish the construction of nuclear reactors, the possibility of its bankruptcy has raised questions about SCANA’s likelihood of abandoning the nuclear plant. Even if SCANA manages to complete the construction of the nuclear unit, there might be delays and a significant increase in cost. Thus, the future earnings growth of the company looks uncertain. In fact, the uncertainty of the company’s nuclear development has already been reflected in its unimpressive stock price performance. During the last three months, SCANA’s stock lost almost 5%, whereas the Zacks categorized Utility-Electric Power industry gained 6.4%. SCANA’s high leverage position also raises concerns." (4/19/2017)
  • 2. 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)
