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 continues to benefit from growing customer demand, owing to its robust product portfolio. Further, contributions from Riva projects and Silver Spring Networks remain positive for the company’s top-line growth. Additionally, the company’s strong position in North America’s water communication space will continue to aid its business growth. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q3 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. 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 on a year-to-date basis." (11/13/2018) 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) Has Itron been receiving favorable news coverage? News headlines about ITRI stock have trended positive recently, InfoTrie Sentiment reports.
