What are Wall Street analysts saying about Autoliv stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Autoliv stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In second-quarter 2018, Autoliv adjusted earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate while revenues missed the same. However, both earnings per share and revenues were higher compared with the year-ago quarter. During the quarter, the company witnessed an organic growth of 7.3% primarily driven by sales growth in China, India, ASEAN and South America. Further, it aims to achieve a sales target of more than $10 billion and approximately 13% adjusted operating margin by 2020 on the back of product launches and improving demand for light vehicles. However, with the European Union’s adoption of a new emission test known as WLTP, the company anticipates the volume sales to decline in Europe. Further, new tariffs and rise in commodity prices might hurt Autoliv’s profit margin. In the last three months, shares of the company have underperformed the industry it belongs to." (7/31/2018)
