What are Wall Street analysts saying about Fastenal stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Fastenal stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Fastenal reported a stellar second quarter with earnings and revenues beating the consensus mark. Earnings grew 13.4% and sales rose 10.6% year over year driven by higher units sales on improvement in underlying market demand and growth in industrial vending business and existing Onsite locations. After a soft 2013, vending trends improved through 2014, 2015 and 2016 as management’s efforts to enhance the quality of signings/installs paid off. As of Jun 30, 2017, Fastenal operated 66,577 vending machines, up 14.1% year over year. Gross margin rose 30 bps in the quarter due to improvement in supply chain initiatives, increased discipline in purchasing and efficient utilization of fleet. Meanwhile, in spite of the improvement in gross margin in the quarter, changes in product and customer mix continued to affect gross profit, as did the addition of Mansco." (8/3/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "FAST put up a good operational Q4 beat and exceeded GM expectations which were helped by cost initiatives. However, Q4 felt fairly similar to Q3 from a demand perspective - in fact, December ADS was even shy of expectations (and so were Oct-Nov). There were areas of improvement, particularly with oil/processing customers, yet core industrial customers were largely unchanged. FAST traded up 6% on just a modest $0.02 beat which continues to reflect how the market is discounting current trends in favor of distributors' early/short cycle leverage in out years. The play here is less about fundamental EPS upside and more so where the multiple goes, in our view. In fact, our EPS est's are only increasing 2.8% and 4.7% for 2017 and 2018, respectively. Expectations are soaring, and sooner or later FAST's ADS will need to accelerate to justify its multiple. At current levels, we don't see a favorable enough risk/reward, keeping us sidelined. Our $49 TP (from $41) assumes 27x our 2018 EPS of $2.00, discounted back, and we reiterate our Neutral rating. We are raising 2017 and 2017 EPS estimates to $1.83 and $2 (from $1.78 and $1.91)."
