What are analysts saying about Actuant Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Actuant Corporation stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the last three months, Actuant’s shares underperformed the Zacks categorized Machine-Tools & Related Products industry. Lower energy market investments, a stronger U.S. dollar and sudden fall in market demand share due to industry rivalry might hurt revenues and profitability in the quarters ahead. However, the company is poised to grow on the back of meaningful acquisitions, lucrative restructuring actions and greater innovation investments. Notably, the company has also raised its adjusted earnings guidance for fiscal 2017. Over the last 60 days, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the stock has remained unchanged for both fiscal 2017 and 2018." (2/21/2017)

  • Wells Fargo & Company analysts commented, "Reaching this goal is contingent on bolt-on acquisitions, core growth above the market, and end market support. Core growth above the market is our primary concern," senior analyst Allison Poliniak-Cusic wrote in a note.Related Link: Wells Fargo Downgrades Actuant To Market PerformDespite acknowledging Actuant's good fundamentals, Poliniak-Cusic said the company's investment in organic growth will take time to show meaningful progress amid significant end-market headwinds. The company's end markets include oil and gas (mainly offshore), agriculture and industrial.Further, the tepid end-markets could also delay results of the company's efforts to drive long-term revenue growth via expansions in product and service, end market, geographic penetration and increased channel effectiveness."Therefore, we are moving to the sidelines and could become more constructive on the name should we see sustained progress in regards to the company's 5-year plan, all else equal," Poliniak-Cusic continued.It's Not All NegativeThe analyst is also encouraged by CEO Randal Baker's greater emphasis on operational excellence to achieve 100bps of annual margin improvement target, which implies a return to mid-teens EBIT percent.Poliniak-Cusic noted that the company is well poised for a potential recovery in macro-environment, driven by new products, greater penetration and operating leverage.The analyst, who has a valuation range of $26-$28, noted that management needs to regain investor confidence on the M&A front due to its past missteps."An assembler (hence low capital user), ATU is a superb cash flow generator, in our opinion, that uses its cash to deleverage and acquire 'good fit, low risk' bolt-ons," (10/7/2016)
