What are Wall Street analysts saying about TriMas Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about TriMas Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "TriMas’ results will be impacted by currency volatility and uncertainty in the broader macroeconomic environment. A stronger dollar makes product exports more difficult and translation impacts hamper sales of the company’s packaging and energy businesses, in Europe and the UK. Lower oil prices have affected the Arrow Engine business, which serves the upstream oil and natural gas markets at the well site, within its Engineered Components segment. In the packaging segment, the company continues to witness softer sales in certain segments of the U.S. market, primarily in health, beauty and home care. This will impact the segment’s sales in second-half 2017. Its estimates have gone down recently." (10/2/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "TRS business model continues to focus on execution in 2017, especially within its Aerospace and Energy oriented businesses. Core sales declined ~8% in the last 2 years, we estimate ~3% y/y growth in 2017e, with 3 of the 4 segments estimated to show growth. Our earnings estimates are 2H17 weighted as profitability for all 4 segments is expected to improve vs. 1H17. We estimate FCF to focus on improving its 2.6x leverage ratio. Our 2017 estimates are unchanged." (3/27/2017)
