- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Resilience and pricing power in the Refinishing segment provide relative stability, but innovation-lead share gains and M&A in all segments will be needed to deliver an 11% sales CAGR from 2016-2020E. Acquisitions will be the first use of cash, but a dividend or share repurchases by the end of 2017E appears likely' Since the IPO, debt reduction has been the first use of cash, but with net debt 3.0x 2016 EBITDA, cash priorities will likely shift. Axalta expects M&A to account for half of the 11% 2016-2020E sales." (2/23/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Axalta Coating Systems Ltd (NASDAQ:AXTA) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)

Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
