Equities Research Analysts’ Updated EPS Estimates for December, 6th (AQN, ATNM, ATU, BNS, CAS, CASY, CWB, CXO, DVA, INST)

Equities Research Analysts’ updated eps estimates for Wednesday, December 6th:

Algonquin Power & Utilities (TSE:AQN) had its outperform rating reiterated by analysts at BMO Capital Markets. BMO Capital Markets currently has a C$16.00 price target on the stock.

B. Riley began coverage on shares of Actinium Pharmaceuticals (NYSEAMERICAN:ATNM). The firm issued a buy rating and a $2.75 price target on the stock.

Actuant (NYSE:ATU) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Over the last three months, Actuant’s shares have underperformed and look overvalued compared to the industry. The company’s fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 earnings of 19 cents per share missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 9.5%. It also came in 36.7% lower than the year-ago tally. The downside was stemmed by significant operating loss incurred by the company’s Energy business. Actuant believes tepid upstream energy market conditions will continue to hurt its near-term results. However, Actuant expects that the solid Industrial and Engineered Solutions businesses will drive its near-term results. Moreover, the company’s ongoing portfolio reshaping initiatives, acquisitions and strategic business divestitures are anticipated to bolster its near-term results. Earnings estimates on the stock remained stable for both fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019 in the last 60 days.”

Bank of Nova Scotia (TSE:BNS) (NYSE:BNS) had its outperform rating reiterated by analysts at BMO Capital Markets. BMO Capital Markets currently has a C$86.00 price target on the stock.

Cascades (TSE:CAS) was upgraded by analysts at Desjardins from a hold rating to a buy rating. The firm currently has C$15.50 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of C$15.00.

Caseys General Stores (NASDAQ:CASY) had its buy rating reiterated by analysts at Raymond James Financial, Inc..

Canadian Western Bank (TSE:CWB) had its buy rating reiterated by analysts at Eight Capital. The firm currently has a C$41.00 price target on the stock.

Concho Resources (NYSE:CXO) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Concho Resources' core operations are focused in the prolific Permian basin, providing this large-cap E&P with an enviable acreage of low-risk top-tier assets and a multiyear drilling inventory. While Concho's track record of production growth remains strong, it has been achieved at a competitive cost structure. CXO also maintains a robust balance sheet, while following a prudent investment approach. However, we remain concerned of the service cost inflation and the company’s lack of geographical diversification. Further, until the commodity prices rebound sufficiently, we believe investors should exhibit caution before accumulating shares.”
