  • Brean Capital Upgrades WGL Holdings to "Buy" (WGL)

    Brean Capital reported on Friday that it has upgraded natural gas utility company WGL Holdings Inc (WGL) . The firm has raised its rating on WGL from "Hold" to "Buy," and has given the company a $46 price target. This price target suggests a 12% increase from the stock's current price of $40.62. The upgrade was primarily based on valuation and future investment opportunities. "Like many utilities in the gas LDC space, the shares of WGL Holdings have come off recent highs and are now trading at a level we consider attractive," analyst Michael Gaugler comments. "Beyond valuation, we consider the recent announcement of conditional approval of Dominion's Cove Point facility for LNG export as a positive development in terms of future investment opportunities, given the company's one-third interest in the Commonwealth Pipeline project, which we believe will be revisited due to future increased demand." WGL Holdings shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock has been mostly flat YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of WGL Holdings Inc (WGL) have a 4.14% yield based on Thursday's closing price of $40.62. WGL Holdings Inc (WGL) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
