  • Should you follow these analysts and buy Chicago Bridge and Iron

    Recent correction in oil prices have taken a toll on Chicago Bridge & Iron Company's (CBI) share prices and the stock has corrected ~50% from 2014 highs. However, according to many analysts, this correction provides a good opportunity to buy the stock. In his recent report, Jefferies analyst Luke Folta reiterated his buy opinion on the company. He considers the stock a bargain at current levels and has a price target of $75 on the stock. He believes divesture of assets and restructuring could generate more that $100 million in cash flow for the company in 2015 and 2016 which could be used towards stock buy backs.


    Another analyst, John B. Rogers of D.A. Davidson, is also bullish on the stock and has a $70 price target. He believes that with sustained earnings and cash flow, let alone growth, the stock can appreciate substaintially from the current level. He is optimistic on the company's backlog growth due to “LNG export facilities, new gas fired power plants, and other energy/downstream infrastructure that could be awarded in 2015.”
