What are analysts saying about VWR Corporation stock?

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

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We continue to like VWR's competitive position in the highly fragmented research distribution landscape & see scope for improved core growth over the coming years on stronger market share gains, particularly in the Industrial arena. Sentiment remains weak, in our view, with much of the debate still stuck on Merck KGaA what-ifs. Greater clarity on that front would be cause for rerating, in our view... Qualitative commentary on the call pointed to robust trends in EMEA across the Industrial channel (>+10%) entering the year. The timing of Easter will benefit EMEA in 1Q17 (+2 extra days / ~+4% impact), which will go the other way in 2Q17. In the Americas region, 1Q17 core growth should improve from 4Q (-1%), but still faces a tough year-ago comparison (+7.6% in 1Q16)." (2/27/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "VWR posted a moderate second-quarter with earnings in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate and revenues ahead of the mark. Segment-wise, management witnessed strong sales growth in both Americas as well as the EMEA-APAC region, accompanied by strong growth in equipment and instrumentation. American business in particular, is riding high, backed by several strategic initiatives implemented in recent times. This includes   series  of  initiatives  to  significantly  upgrade  its information  technology  infrastructure,  optimize  its U.S. distribution network  and  modify  its  marketing strategy. Encouragingly, the extent of currency fluctuations on the company’s EMEA-APAC sales was low in the second quarter which contributed to the overall performance of VWR. On the profitability front, VWR posted improved margin figures in spite of the competitive landscape." (8/8/2016)
