What are analysts saying about Autoliv stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Autoliv stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Autoliv's electronics segment is gaining in strength following the launch of the Zenuity joint venture in April. Also, innovative product launches, acquisitions and JVs are likely to boost its sales. Moreover, Autoliv has been witnessing a strong order intake. The company has hired a number of engineers to cater to the demand, of which a majority have been employed in the Passive Safety segment. However, Autoliv has lowered its outlook for 2017.  Moreover, stiff competition in passive safety products is a concern before it. Year to date, Autoliv has underperformed the industry it belongs to." (10/17/2017)
  • 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We believe the recent sell-off in ALV shares has created a more opportunistic buying opportunity. The growth outlook remains robust following two years of very strong bookings, although 2017 results will be negatively affected by the need for increased investment spending, setting 2018 (and likely 2019) up for double-digit EPS growth. We reiterate our Outperform rating." (2/6/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We lower ALV to Hold as we now see limited upside to valuation and estimates. With the exception of tyre profits for 2017, we make only minor changes to our estimates, largely updating for the FX moves." (1/19/2017)
