  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Management's 25% EBITDA goal is getting harder to achieve and 2017 organic growth guidance requires an uptick in 90%+ of WLTW's businesses. However, against that backdrop, sentiment has been and remains low. Downside is limited, in our view, while the bull case calls for upside to 2018 consensus EPS and multiple expansion. We reduce our EPS and PT, but maintain our Buy on risk/reward skewed to the positive." (2/9/2017)
