What are analysts saying about Nasdaq stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nasdaq stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nasdaq remains focused on growth through acquisitions and organic initiatives that enable entry and cross-selling opportunities into new markets at a low-cost and highly-flexible platform. It displays prudence by accelerating its non-transaction revenue base. It realigned its reporting segments to better reflect client orientation, rebranded its fixed income business and has decided to end its NLX interest rate futures business as well. It had identified $10-$20 million in additional cost synergies and expects to deploy capital in de-leveraging over the next four quarters, investing in growth initiatives and engaging in shareholders friendly moves. However, its elevated expenses restrict the desired margin expansion. Intense competition and regulatory issues remain key concerns. Shares of Nasdaq have underperformed the industry, year to date. A Zacks Rank #3 combined with Earnings ESP of 0.66% makes us reasonably confident of an earnings beat." (10/17/2017)
- 2. UBS AG analysts commented, "Lowering 1Q17 EPS estimate to $1.06 from $1.09 vs. $1.09 Street consensus. Following NDAQ's February metrics release, we are lowering our 1Q EPS estimate to $1.06 from $1.09. This is now $0.03 below the latest Street consensus. Volumes for February were mixed relative to the prior month but were generally down y/y. QTD volumes are also mostly running down y/y, with US equities and options as well as OMX volumes all running below our prior forecasts. In addition to reducing our 1Q forecasts to reflect lower-than-previously-expected volumes in these areas (with the most downside from European derivatives), lower US FICC expectations add to the downside in our estimate revision. While we wait until next month for 1Q pricing data, we believe slightly disappointing volume trends (read: downside to near-term forecasts) could hold back the shares a bit tomorrow." (3/3/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Nasdaq (NASDAQ:NDAQ) (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.
