What are analysts saying about Advanced Disposal Services stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Advanced Disposal Services stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Advanced Disposal Services, Inc. is a waste management company. It offers waste collection, transfer, recycling and disposal services for residential, commercial and industrial customers. The company serves primarily in United States. Advanced Disposal Services, Inc. is based in Ponte Vedra, FL. " (10/6/2017)
  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "We believe Advanced Disposal Services' (ADSW) regional presence positions it to benefit from favorable demographic trends in the majority of markets it serves, volume growth from municipal contract wins in mid-2017 and small, strategic acquisitions to leverage its operating network. However, with the net debt/adjusted EBITDA (AEBITDA) ratio ~4.7x, the majority of free cash flow generation is expected to repay debt implying that inorganic growth is likely limited to small collection-oriented transactions. Absent a large acquisition or reported volumes accelerating and turning positive, we see limited upside surprise to CY17 guidance for AEBITDA and FCF and view the risk/reward profile as neutral." (2/27/2017)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We reiterate our Buy rating and raise the target price to $25 on Advanced Disposal (ADSW, Buy, $22.02). The 4Q16 results should bring focus to both the improving operating leverage of the income statement and the meaningful upgrading of the balance sheet following the IPO and debt refinancing completed in October and November. Recall ADSW has not fully anniversaried a negative sales impact from contract turnover, asset sales, conclusion of special waste projects that would account for a probable reported negative volume. Reported price is expected to be over 2%. We look for FY17 guidance of organic growth of 2% plus price and 1% volume, acknowledging the sales headwinds anniversary by 2Q17." (2/21/2017)
