What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sabre stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sabre stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sabre's second-quarter results benefitted from strong adoption of its solutions at its Travel Network and Hospitality Solutions business segments. The company has a diversified clientele, which includes online and offline travel agencies, airlines as well as hotel companies. This improves visibility into the company’s revenue growth trajectory. Moreover, Sabre’s collaboration with Microsoft and Amazon Web Services for the cloud infrastructure of its SaaS based solutions is positive. However, seasonality in the travel industry and stiff competition in the travel distribution market are headwinds. Sabre’s Travel Network segment is prone to pricing pressure from travel suppliers. Additionally, the company has to comply with the new regulations of the industry as well like the new distribution capability standard introduced by The International Air Transport Association. These tend to increase costs." (8/7/2018)
  • 2. Imperial Capital analysts commented, "We are maintaining our Outperform rating and raising our one-year price target of $31 on SABR shares. Our price target is about 26% above the recent share price. We are also maintaining our full-year EPS estimates; see Figure 1. Our positive outlook on SABR shares is predicated on: 1) revenues stabilizing in the Airline Solutions business as SABR laps losing Southwest (LUV); 2) SABR further expanding its footprint in the fast-growing Hospitality Solutions industry, with revenue growth expected in the low-teens; 3) healthy growth in the GDS with strong global travel demand, market share gains in Asia-Pacific, and improved pricing due to modest competition; 4) SABR generating strong free cash flow through FY19, with FY18 capital expenditures expected at or below the low end of the guidance range; and 5) attractive valuations relative to historical valuation ranges."
