What are analysts saying about FLIR Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FLIR Systems stock:

  • Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Needham & Company hosted FLIR on Friday in Boston. As expected, discussion centered on the unexpected retirement announcement from Andy Teich, which caught investors and, we believe, FLIR colleagues off guard. The other topic that investors returned to following the Q4 call was the erosion in gross margins, perhaps as high on the list of concerns as the CEO transition. Despite the 170 bps decline in adj. gross margins in 2016, mgmt is optimistic about a recovery in gross margins in 2017. FLIR's Gov't business remains solid, with backlog healthy, and we expect the Commercial business to benefit from an improving industrial environment. While FLIR shares could be range-bound given the CEO transition and short-term margin issues, we maintain our Buy based on the long-term value we see in the shares." (2/21/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "FLIR Systems’ fourth-quarter 2016 earnings rose 4% year over year, but missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. A rise in certain operating costs and higher interest outlay more than offset the top line growth. Nevertheless, the company is seeing robust momentum in its commercial products, and saw positive growth in four of its six reporting segments. Also, the company’s solid bookings and backlog are bullish indicators of its future growth. Its effective restructuring initiatives and solid prospects of the thermal imaging market signal at bright prospects ahead. Moreover, FLIR Systems’ focus on developing new products, its strategic acquisitions and the resiliency of the CDMQ model are expected to propel growth. In addition, FLIR Systems’ strong liquidity position, improved working capital utilization and robust cash flow add to its strength. " (2/16/2017)
