What are analysts saying about Liberty Global PLC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Liberty Global PLC stock:

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "SFM will report Q4 results on 2/23. Taking into account recent competitive developments, a more difficult deflationary backdrop, and the adverse impact from greater fixed cost deleverage, we expect another Street reset for SFM similar to what we have seen for other grocers in recent months. Our updated forecasts suggest a FY17 EPS figure closer to $0.80, down from $0.90, and below a Street figure of $0.92. With the rally in SFM shares post WFM’s report, we see downside risk to the $17- ish level. The market has been very kind to grocery reports lately such as KR, WFM, and others." (2/14/2017)

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "The launch of DOCSIS 3.1 network services, the joint venture with Vodafone in the Netherlands, the acquisition of UTV Ireland TV stations from ITV, the takeover of Cable & Wireless are expected to drive growth at Liberty Global. These merger and acquisitions plans of the company look impressive. However, shares of Liberty Global  have underperformed the Zacks categorized ‘Cable TV' growth in the past one year, due to multiple headwinds that have hurt the stock this year. Moreover, Liberty Global’s predominant operation in Europe is a major concern because of the prevalence of recessionary pressure, debt crisis and low per capita income in several European countries. Further, stiff competition in the video, broadband, fixed-line telephony and mobile services business, foreign exchange rate risks and integration risks remain major dampeners." (1/10/2017)
