Carlyle on the Street: Understanding the Analysts’ Shifting Ratings
Analyst ratings for CG
Carlyle Group’s (CG) performance expectations in 2H17 have caused analysts to shift their ratings to “strong buy,” mainly due to the higher amount of fundraising expected of the company in 2H17. Analysts have given a price target of $21.12, which implies a 20% rise from the stock’s current price level.
Carlyle’s improved performance in its GMS (Global Market tSrategies) segment—despite the expectation of a Fed rate hike—has pushed its ratings more toward the “strong buy” zone. In May 2017, of the 12 analysts covering the stock, four analysts have given the stock a “strong buy” rating, while three analysts have given a “buy,” and five have given a “hold.”
