CEIX Price Forecast Based on DCF Valuation
DCF Fair Value Target:
We started the process of determining a valid price forecast for CONSOL Energy Inc with a discounted cash flow analysis -- the results of which can be found in the table below. To summarize, we found that CONSOL Energy Inc ranked in the 14th percentile in terms of potential gain offered. We should note, though, that the most conservative analysis suggests this stock will yield negative results -- and thus may be a potential short opportunity. The most interesting components of our discounted cash flow analysis for CONSOL Energy Inc ended up being:
