Goldman Sachs Downgrades Consol Energy (CNX)


Goldman Sachs reported on Monday that they have lowered their rating for coal and natural gas producer, CONSOL Energy Inc.(CNX).

The firm has downgraded CNX from “Buy” to “Neutral,” and has raised the company’s price target from $34 to $36. This price target suggests a 16% increase from the stock’s current price of $30.19.
