What are Wall Street analysts saying about AMC Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AMC Entertainment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc., operates as a theatrical exhibition company primarily in the United States and internationally. It owned or interests in theatres and screens. AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. is based in Leawood, Kansas. " (3/7/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We believe that approximately 80% of BPM services are currently done in‐ house. While many large enterprises are in the early stages of outsourcing back‐office and front‐office activities, they are becoming increasingly comfortable with WNS. The firm is experiencing an increased appetite to move up the value chain to more complex and in some cases core activities, which reflects growing levels of trust." (3/1/2019)
  • 3. Cfra analysts commented, "We expect consolidated revenues to increase 6.9% in 2018 to about $5.43 billion (with some currency tailwinds), after 57% growth in 2017, which included some notable recent acquisitions in the U.S., U.K. and Nordic markets. We expect some improvement in attendance per screen in the U.S. and international markets, aided by the customer loyalty program." (6/27/2018)
  • 4. Wedbush analysts commented, "We estimate PA ARPA was up 35% y/y in the quarter, 2% better than our expectations, while both Rental (+35%) and traffic (+6% on average) also came in ahead of forecasts. Mortgage was admittedly a damper on results, however, falling 6% y/y in the quarter, and with the full-year outlook now calling for down mid-single digits. We continue to view Mortgage as a nice ancillary product, but less relevant to overall growth story, which continues to feature PA growth north of 20%. Projections for the Home segment continue to vary wildly, with consensus seemingly not even factoring it in on a large scale basis in 2019. Our prior $217.5 million forecast for 2018 remains unchanged, and falls at the higher end of the revenue range. At this point, with so much uncertainty, we see no reason to adjust our estimates, with the assumption that Zillow will also continue to invest heavily in the product both this year and next, weighing on adjusted EBITDA."
