What are Wall Street analysts saying about LKQ stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about LKQ stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "LKQ’s strategic acquisitions has helped it to expand geographic footprint, improve customer offering and adopt new technologies. The $1.8 billion buyout of Stahlgruber in 2018 is significantly aiding the prospects of LKQ. Further, LKQ’s progress toward jettisoning the non-core businesses to simplify its operating model and improve margins also bode well. The company’s increased cash flow guidance for 2019 and buyback program lifts investors’ confidence. However, amid the macroeconomic headwinds and softness in the European markets, the full year EPS and sales forecast has been cut, which is a major headwind, going forward. Moreover, the company is bearing the brunt of rising SG&A costs, which may increase its overall costs and clip its profits. As such, the sock warrants a cautious stance from the investors." (9/10/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We believe the quarter will be within the range of guidance." (2/26/2019)
