What are Wall Street analysts saying about Itron stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Itron stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Itron is witnessing strong bookings and improvement in its backlogs. It is benefiting from growing customer demand, owing to its robust product portfolio. Further, its well-performing gas and network segments are driving its top-line growth. Additionally, buyout of Silver Spring Networks is contributing well to the network segment’s growth. However, component shortages and extended lead times remain major concerns for the company. Also, it is currently suffering from inefficiencies in the global supply chain. Moreover, the elevated costs related to this poses serious risk to the company’s margin expansion. Further, sluggish industrial and commercial shipments in Latin America and Asia Pacific regions are headwinds. Notably, shares of Itron have underperformed the industry in the past one year." (2/4/2019) 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "With integration of a major competitor (Silver Spring Networks) now underway, we find conditions in place (conservative synergy assumptions, combined competitive positioning, attractive valuation, etc.) to once again become constructive on Itron. Investment highlights We recently hosted European investor meetings with CFO Joan Hooper and VP of Investor Relations Barbara Doyle. In sum, we come away with increased confidence in underlying demand trends, current integration/restructuring efforts, and the prospects for out-year earnings acceleration (i.e. towards $5+ in ’20 without aggressive assumptions). We reiterate our BUY rating." (6/6/2018) Has Itron been receiving favorable news coverage?
