What are analysts saying about Scana Corporation stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "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. However, SCANA Corp.’s price chart shows that it has lagged the industry over the last three months. 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, SCANA might face delays and a significant increase in cost. Thus, the future earnings growth of the company looks uncertain." (9/13/2017)
  • 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)
