What are analysts saying about Energy Recovery stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Energy Recovery stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Based in San Leandro, California, ENERGY RECOVERY, INC. is a leading global developer and manufacturer of highly efficient energy recovery devices utilized in the water desalination industry. Energy Recovery, Inc. operates primarily in the sea water reverse osmosis segment of the desalination industry.ERI manufactures ultra-high efficiency recovery products and technology, specifically the ERI PX Pressure Exchanger, that are among the enabling technologies driving the rapid growth in seawater reverse osmosis desalination, and are helping to make desalination affordable worldwide. " (7/10/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Last week, we hosted President and CEO Joel Gay, CFO Chris Gannon, and Managing Director, IR and Corporate Development Brian Uhlmer in meetings with clients. We heard encouraging updates across all three of the oil & gas division's current initiatives: design finalization and construction of the Gen-II missile in time for the VorTeq system to attempt its delayed first milestone (M1) in 3Q17; introduction this year of the second PX-derivative product for the oil & gas sector; and monetization traction in the GCC Middle East for the IsoBoost/IsoGen lines. At its present level, the stock is valuing these oil & gas opportunities, in aggregate, at ~$1/share and thus proffering a very attractive risk/reward entry point, in our view. ERII's water division and net cash position are worth $4.50 and $1.83, by our estimates." (3/28/2017)
  • 3. Evercore ISI analysts commented, " A relatively new entrant to the OFS space, Energy Recovery is an energy solutions provider who leverages its expertise in fluid dynamics and advanced material sciences to arbitrage pressure energy. Through its IP-protected Pressure Exchanger (PX) technology, along with its various derivatives, Energy Recovery aims to create markets to preserve or eliminate pumps that are subject to, and destroyed by, hostile process fluids, and to convert wasted pressure energy into a reusable asset. In doing so, ERII seeks to reduce customer opex, capex, and downtime, allowing for quicker customer payback periods and significant margins and returns for ERII. While the company looks to diversify its story and investment case, investors will likely continue to focus on the VorTeq's path to commercialization, given the large potential NPV impact. According to our math, the current share price appraises a minimal likelihood of success, which we deem overly pessimistic, while acknowledging that many investors are likely willing to sacrifice initial upside and wait until M1 is achieved in 2H17 and more clarity is provided as to M2 and the commercialization timeline. We remain confident in commercialization and rate the shares Outperform with a $20 PT." (3/15/2017)
