What are analysts saying about Blackhawk Network Holdings stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Blackhawk Network Holdings stock:
- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Q4 results missed due in large part to EMV with revs 4.3% below Street and EPS at $1.00 (vs. Street at $1.10). F17 EPS guidance also fell short at $1.63 at midpoint vs. the Street's $1.89 (with EMV not yet fully resolved in '17). The stock will likely pull back as investors were expecting EMV-related upside in 2017 rather than a shortfall. At the same time, plenty of non-recurring factors in '17 as well as the new Target deal may point to a healthier 2018." (2/16/2017)
- Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We had been optimistic that 2017 EPS guidance would be in the range of $1.80-$2.00 (we were at $1.94 and Consensus was at $1.88), which we viewed as necessary to keep the stock stable. Actual guidance of $1.56-$1.70 was well short of our expectations, and we expect the stock will be under pressure in the $32-$34 range. While the revenue guidance of $1.09b at the midpoint was above our and Consensus $1.07b, we believe margin expansion, or the lack thereof, will be a critical overhang to the story, particularly in what should have been a relatively strong margin year as open-loop card sales resume. While we by no means believe this business is broken, and there may be conservatism in the outlook, our downgrade reflects our view that HAWK remains a low visibility business with many moving parts and a history of disappointing results. The announcement with Target is definitely a big deal, but at this point we prefer to step aside and wait for a better entry point, stronger signs of reliable execution or simply more faith in our forecasting ability. HAWK was a $46 stock when we initiated Outperform in December 2015, and while it still represents a unique and differentiated story, it has been a decidedly bad call. Management plans to hold an analyst day this Thursday." (2/16/2017)
- Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "We are downgrading HAWK to Neutral from Buy as its post-3Q16 +17% move (vs. 6% for the S&P 500) already reflects a 'post-EMV' rebound and optimism regarding the FY17 outlook. At this level, upside seems capped and valuation (~15x 2018 EPS, ex cash tax benefits) and other risks (slower U.S. retail segment; heightened competition; mix shift to lower-margin segments) are more important. We prefer to wait for a more attractive entry point." (1/17/2017)

The company distributes gift cards, prepaid handsets and prepaid financial services products. Blackhawk Network Holdings, Inc. is headquartered in Pleasanton, California. " (12/14/2016)
Bank of America Corp analysts commented, "The EMV mandate requires merchants to implement chip-enabled point-of-sale systems or accept liability of fraud (previously assumed by card networks/banks). Implementation delays have led to some of HAWK's partners taking action to limit open loop card fraud. Actions include pulling cards off shelves, cash/debit only purchases, & removal of high value products," (10/7/2016)
