Northwest Natural Gas backs FY18 EPS view $2.10-$2.30, consensus $2.26

"The company reaffirmed 2018 guidance in the range of $2.10 to $2.30 per share. This guidance assumes continued customer growth from our utility segment, average weather conditions, and no significant changes in prevailing regulatory policies, mechanisms, or outcomes, or significant laws or regulations. We continue to expect capital expenditures for 2018 to be in the range of $190 to $220 million to support core gas utility customer growth and safety and reliability, as well as the completion of the North Mist Expansion Project. We expect to finance our capital needs in 2018 using a combination of cash flow from operations and debt. Our total capital investment plan for the five-year period from 2018 to 2022 is approximately $750 to $850 million, with a majority supporting continued customer growth, distribution system maintenance and improvements, technology investments, and utility gas storage facility."

UPGRADE

Neutral
Northwest Natural Gas upgraded to Neutral at Hilliard Lyons
As previously reported, Hilliard Lyons analyst Spencer Joyce upgraded Northwest Natural Gas to Neutral from Underperform, stating that his view toward its near-term risk/reward is "as positive as it has been in some time." However, he still thinks Northwest faces one of the more challenged long-term growth outlooks in the gas utility industry and continues to view the stock as a "potential source of funds" for investors in the sector.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Monster Beverage (MNST) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Steve Power saying the selloff since the company's "weak" results on March 1 is an "overly negative reaction," presenting a buying opportunity. 2. Northwest Natural Gas (NWN) upgraded to Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Sarah Akers citing valuation. 3. Valeant (VRX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Gregg Gilbert saying with the shares down 20% since the company reported "solid" fourth quarter results and a "decent" 2018 outlook, the price target suggests "significant upside" over the next year if Valeant continues to execute. 4. Newpark Resources (NR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Johnson Rice with analyst George Venturatos citing its improving market share in the core Fluids segment, leverage to recent rig count gains and its strong free cash flow profile. 5.
