The lowest analyst estimate for this report is 60 cents per share, and the highest is 75 cents per share.

Real Money's Dick Arms writes about Halliburton in Don't Believe the Hype .

Halliburton usually reminds me of a great trader named James Saraceno, in's chat room. Every successful trader I know has something unique about their personality. Saraceno's quirk is a rhyme for stocks with a bullish or bearish view. I must have heard Saraceno say "Hal is your pal" 5 gazillion times, and now it's burned into my brain.

Halliburton has 25 buy recommendations out of 32 analysts covering the company, along with five holds, and one sell rating. The stock is about even for the year with a 1 % gain, and the average analyst target price for Halliburton is $43.33.

This stock currently has an annualized dividend of $0.36, yielding 1.07%.

Currently, the short interest based on the float is inconsequential and not a big concern. Short interest is 2.9%.
