  • 7/27/2017 – CONSOL Energy was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “CONSOL Energy’s increasing focus on E&P business is yielding positive results. Thanks to its solid asset base, the company is well poised to achieve the new E&P production targets. The company sold non-core E&P assets in the reported quarter and continues to pursue its strategy of separating the coal and E&P business. Besides, it continues to implement its hedge program and some volume of natural gas production is hedged through 2020 to protect against fluctuating prices. The company has taken steps to separate its mining and E&P division. CONSOL Energy’s shares returned higher than the broader industry in the last three months. CONSOL’s dependence on a limited group of customers for bulk sales of coal and operation of traditionally risky underground mines are headwinds.”
