Analysts are estimating as low as 80 cents per share, up to 91 cents per share.

Real Money's Dan Fitzpatrick writes about Baker Hughes in Fitz Bits: Looking for a Phillips Breakout .

Analyst opinion is mixed with this company. Most of the analysts surveyed don't believe a buy or a sell is currently warranted. Baker Hughes has 16 buy recommendations out of 31 analysts covering the company, along with 14 holds, and 1 sell recommendation. The stock fell 11% in the last year, and the average analyst target price for Baker Hughes is $54.17, a price not seen yet in 2012.

Shareholders receive 60 cents annually in dividend payments, for a yield of 1.4%.

The short interest is slightly elevated, although, not yet enough to make me want to worry about it. As long as it stays under 4%, I won't give it much thought. Short interest is 3.5%, and if it starts to increase past 5%, I recommend monitoring for a possible exit.
