Best Canadian Stocks For 2021

What happened

Shares of Uniti Group (NASDAQ:UNIT) fell as much as 17.9% on Thursday due to a bearish analyst note on the former Windstream Holdings (NASDAQ:WIN) unit. By 3:30 p.m. EST, the telecommunications infrastructure manager had recovered somewhat to a 16.7% drop.

So what

Citigroup analyst Michael Rollins cut his price target on Uniti from $15 to $11 per share, based on a recent court decision finding some of Windstream’s debts in default. Rollins also slashed Windstream’s price target from $2.00 to $0.50 per share and tagged both stocks with a sell rating. For the record, Windstream’s stock is trading 23% lower as the closing bell approaches.

Now what

Citi’s analyst note didn’t really add anything to the conversation around Windstream and Uniti, apart from some firm price targets and another bearish voice. I continue to expect Windstream to go bankrupt while Uniti struggles to free itself from that unfortunate relationship to serve a fresher and healthier customer portfolio.

    It starts in 2007 when the Oracle of Omaha began purchasing shares of ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP). By the end of 2007, Buffett had spent just over $1 billion.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.
