What are analysts saying about Union Pacific Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Union Pacific Corporation stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "The improvement in the coal scenario is very encouraging as headwinds pertaining to the commodity were largely responsible for Union Pacific underperforming industry to which it belongs, for the last one year. Overall volumes improved in the second quarter of 2017 driven by a 17% rise in coal volumes. Coal revenues also rose 25%, aiding the overall top line as the company reported better-than-expected earnings per share and revenues in the second quarter. Union Pacific expects the scenario regarding business volumes to improve further in the second half of the year. Additionally, its 2017 capital plan worth $3.1 billion is also encouraging. However, the company's high debt levels remain a major concern. The company’s outlook on its automotive unit is also concerning. Notably, sluggish auto production is likely to hurt results, going forward." (7/24/2017)
- 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Our 2017 and 2018 EPS estimates have been increased from $5.50 and $6.10 to $5.55 and $6.15, respectively. We are introducing our 2019 EPS estimate at $6.80. Our 12-month target price increases from $98 to $102 or 15.0x our 2019 EPS estimate of $6.80, and our rating remains hold." (1/20/2017)
- 3. Aegis analysts commented, "We are raising our price target for UNP shares from $115 to $120 per share, and adjusting our EPS estimates for a later timing on corporate tax reform and improving railroad fundamentals. Underlying our price target change are stronger underlying volumes and yields for 2017 for UNP's core business, offset by a change in our tax reform assumption, moving much that benefit to our 2018 EPS outlook, so our 2017 EPS estimate declines from $6.65 to $6.10, as we take back 550 of the 700bp of tax rate relief we had previous modeled in 2017, while our 2018 EPS is raised to $7.60 on 700bp lower tax rates."

Consensus Ratings for Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
