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 reported mixed second quarter results wherein revenues improved but earnings were down year over year. The company witnessed strong bookings and improvement in its backlogs. Itron continued to benefit from growing customer demand, owing to its robust product portfolio. Further, positive contributions from Riva projects drove the top-line growth. Nevertheless, strong position in North America’s water communication space remained positive throughout the quarter. Additionally, buyout of Silver Spring Networks contributed well to the network segment’s growth, which remains a significant growth factor for the company. However, inefficiencies related to global supply chain and elevated costs related to this are major concerns as it poses risk to margin expansion. Moreover, shares of Itron have underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year." (8/9/2018)
  • 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)
