The stock lost 11.9% as compared to the industry, which gained 17% over the same period. High costs from investments have been hurting j2 Global for quite some time. This is likely to hurt the bottom line in the third quarter quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the third quarter has been revised downward to the tune of 4.2% in the last 90 days. Detailed results will be out on Nov 2. We are also concerned about the company's high exposure to economic downturn as it has a vast majority of credit-sensitive customers. We are also cautious about the company's high debt levels. However, the company's growth-by-acquisition policy holds promise. We are also impressed by the company's decision announced in August 2017 to hike its quarterly dividend payout by 2.7%. " (10/20/2017)

Consensus Ratings for j2 Global (NASDAQ:JCOM) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
