  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "1Q19 EBIT beat our and consensus estimate by 12% & 7%, albeit from a low base. Improved pricing and manufacturing efficiencies drove the beat. Organic sales growth of ~2% is still below historical levels and was aided ~150 bps by certain non-recurring events. Until we see a pathway to sustainable 3-5% sales growth and consistent margins expansion, we prefer to remain on the sidelines especially given the stock’s premium valuation." (1/31/2019)
