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 will gain from robust backlog and new contracts reflecting strong industry demand for new technologies. Its Silver Spring acquisition will also aid backlog strength. The integration of Silver Spring is progressing well and the company confirmed $50 million of run rate cost synergies by the end of 2020. The new restructuring plan will also optimize manufacturing operations and product development. However, industry supply chain headwinds and pricing issues will hurt margin performance in second-quarter 2018. Further, the effective tax rate in each quarter will vary from the annual guidance, which might impact the company's earnings. Further, elevated costs related to supply-chain transitions will mar earnings. Itron's results will also be hurt by elevated restructuring expense, fluctuation in currency rates and intense competition. Moreover, the stock has underperformed the industry, over the past year." (6/12/2018)
- 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)
