What are analysts saying about Targa Resources stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Targa Resources stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Targa Resources Corp owns general and limited partner interests in Targa Resources Partners LP, engaged in providing midstream natural gas and natural gas liquid services in the United States. The Company operates its business through two business segments: Natural Gas Gathering and Processing and NGL Logistics and Marketing. The Natural Gas Gathering and Processing segment includes assets used in the gathering of natural gas produced from oil and gas wells and processing this raw natural gas into merchantable natural gas by extracting natural gas liquids and removing impurities. NGL Logistics and Marketing segment is engaged in gathering and storing; fractionating, storing, and transporting of finished NGLs. Targa also markets the natural gas liquids produced and purchased in selected United States markets. The Company also offers refinery services and wholesale propane marketing operations. Targa Resources Corp is headquartered in Houston, Texas. " (10/19/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, " In our view, Targa's acquisition of Outrigger's Midland and Delaware assets checks all the requisite boxes including price, location and connectivity with the added bonus of flexible earn-out provisions. By our math (Figure 2 in the full report) the acquisition entails an effective (including the first earn-out payment) 2017 EBITDA multiple of 12.0x, falling to ~7.6x by 2020. Locking the earn-out provisions to pre-determined multiples means the deal only gets more accretive for TRGP as it approaches the $1.5B total consideration ceiling. Utilizing relatively conservative performance and margin assumptions, our analysis suggests a total consideration of $824mm and ~2-4% DCF accretion through 2020. We also liked the almost exclusive equity financing of the deal which not only protects the balance sheet but lowers our leverage forecast post-2017 (2017-2019 consolidated leverage goes to 4.0x, 3.8x, 3.6x from 3.9x, 3.8x, 3.9x)."
