What are Wall Street analysts saying about Gentex stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gentex stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gentex aims to attain long-term growth, driven by robust product launches, better mix and unique technology platforms. Further, Gentex's sales improved backed by rising auto-dimming mirror shipments in the North American market. It remains steadfast in its efforts to provide unique, value-added solutions for its customers. The company pursues an aggressive capital-deployment strategy. Moreover, the company is focused on developing dimmable devices that are enabled with new technologies to cater to the increasing demand for technically-advanced auto parts. However, decline in global light-vehicle production and adverse impacts of tariff on gross margin is pressurizing Gentex. Further, high operating expenses and pricing pressure from automotive customers and competitors are concerns for Gentex. Hence, the stock warrants a cautious stance." (10/17/2019)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "GNTX reported Q4 sales and EPS of $453M and $0.41, vs. our ests. of $482M and $0.43 while GNTX announced 2019 revenue and gross margin guidance below expectations. We expect continued EBIT choppiness in 1H’19 as lower yr/yr production, expected gross margin headwinds, and sustained R&D levels (to support growth initiatives) weigh on earnings. We lower our PT to $23 – maintain Hold." (2/4/2019)
