  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "A.O. Smith's fourth-quarter 2018 revenues missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 1.6%. Over the past six months, the stock has underperformed the industry. 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. 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."

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)
