  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "j2 Global posted strong financial results in the fourth quarter of 2016. Moreover, shares of j2 Global have outperformed the Zacks classified 'Internet Software' industry over the last three months. Further, the company expects earnings (on an adjusted basis) in the band of $5.60 to $6.00 per share for full-year 2017. The top line is projected in the range of $1.13 billion to $1.17 billion. In a shareholder friendly move, the company hiked its quarterly dividend by 2.8% to $0.365 per share. Moreover, the company completed six acquisitions in the fourth quarter of 2016. We are however 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 level. Another risk for the company is its heavy reliance on select telecommunication carriers in each geographical segment." (2/17/2017)

  • Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "Last week JCOM participated at an investor conference, and appeared positive on the early Everyday Health integration and opportunities. We also hosted an investor meeting that focused on the Everyday Health acquisition. Overall, we remain positive on that opportunity and the broader business prospects, headlined by continued strong free cash flow generation. We are raising our Q4 estimates to include the Everyday Health acquisition for the first time, though our 2017 estimates do not yet include it." (1/17/2017)
