What are Wall Street analysts saying about A. O. Smith stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about A. O. Smith stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past year, A.O. Smith has underperformed the industry. Also, it looks significantly overvalued compared with the industry over the same time frame. Going forward, the company projects weaker performance in the Rest of World segment, primarily due to lower growth forecasts in China. Higher advertising costs related to brand building, coupled with developmental and engineering costs associated with new products are concerning. We believe, if unchecked, higher costs and operating expenses will prove detrimental to the company’s margins and profitability. Further, given the company's extensive geographic presence, its financial performance is subject to various risks like foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, interest rates and hyperinflation in foreign countries." (3/18/2019)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We maintain our Outperform rating for AOS, which has essentially morphed from a growth stock to a value stock over the last 12 months. Our $54 target (down from $60) reflects a P/E of 19.7 times, a 20% discount to the water infrastructure peer group average of 24.7 times. Also, of note in gauging reward/risk, AOS represents a call option on a potential U.S./China trade deal." (1/29/2019)
