What are analysts saying about Weatherford International PLC stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Weatherford International PLC stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Weatherford International Ltd.’s price chart underperformed the broader market indices over the last three months. The company’s debt-heavy balance sheet and inadequate cash balances are other concerns. The debt increased by nearly 30% during 2016 with little sign of reduction during the 2017 so far. Further, cash balance plunged by over 43% so far this year. This reflects the weakness of its balance sheet. Moreover, the credit ratings of the company’s bonds were downgraded by multiple credit rating agencies in 2016. Given high debt load and weak credit ratings we think that Weatherford might face difficulties in generating debt capital for financing future growth projects. Volatile gas prices also remain a drag. Under these headwinds, we expect shares of Weatherford to be under pressure in the near future." (10/17/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "As we now expect a softer non-NAM in 2017 (see below), and we true-up for share dilution in 4Q16, we lower estimates and tweak lower our PT to $6. After we jumped the gun to upgrade (in 2015) on a management change thesis, we believe we still are giving credit for a much better-run company. However, at the very least, the macro constrains the pace of progress and we submit there is relatively greater risk than for peers in how the new WFT climbs out of the downturn (and we see some risk to 4Q16 as well). That said, risks to our more negative view include 1) potential strong recovery in production-oriented (opex) spending (albeit presumably with more competition in the U.S. than during the last downturn), 2) even greater savings from shutting in pumping (although we already estimate $180MM in savings yr./yr. in '17 related to this) and 3) generally low expectations."

Consensus Ratings for Weatherford International PLC (NYSE:WFT) (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.
