What are analysts saying about Xcel Energy stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Xcel Energy stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Xcel Energy have returned better than the broader industry in the last six months. Despite the adverse impact of warmer winter, the company was able to match the year-ago earnings due to higher electric and natural gas margins and a lower effective tax rate. Xcel Energy’s long-term investment plans will strengthen its operations and the company is also benefiting from improving economic conditions in its service territories. The constructive regulatory orders will also help the company. However, the rising debt level of Xcel Energy is a concern, in an interest hike environment, with its debt/capital ratio presently higher than the industry average." (6/28/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "On 3/21 Xcel announced a proposal to add 1,230 MW of wind investment in Texas and New Mexico, of which the utility proposes to own 1,000 MW at a cost of ~$1.6 billion, and PPA 230 MW. This investment would be the first rate-based wind in either Texas or New Mexico. Additionally, on 3/16 Xcel announced an additional proposed 400 MW of owned wind in the upper Midwest, resulting in owned wind of 1,150 MW out of a total 1,550 MW." (3/23/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Xcel Energy (NYSE:XEL) (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.
