Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating restated by Zacks in a research report issued to clients and investors on Wednesday. They currently have a $45.00 target price on the stock. Zacks‘s target price indicates a potential upside of 5.96% from the stock’s previous close.
Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Suncor – Canada’s biggest energy firm and the largest oil sands outfit has substantial growth opportunities, a unique asset base and high return potential for the long run. We expect Suncor to generate significant cash flows in the long run after its Golden Eagle and Hebron projects start operating. Importantly, Suncor’s oil sand production has been increasing at a record rate, with the favorable trend expected to continue. However, we remain concerned about the company’s high debt level and capital expenditure. Consequently, we see the stock performing in line with the broader market and are reiterating our Neutral recommendation.”
