What are Wall Street analysts saying about Badger Meter stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Badger Meter stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Badger Meter reported promising results for the second-quarter 2018, representing both record revenues and adjusted earnings. The company remains positive about the second half of the year attributable to sizable backlog, continued interest in flagship products and the recent moderating of copper prices. Inclusion in AT&T’s Smart City Alliance, a framework created by AT&T, will allow Badger Meter to explore new ways for its smart water solutions to join forces with industry-leading cellular networks. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. However, the company faces charges related to termination of its frozen pension plan in 2018, affecting earnings. Any possible rise in copper prices in future is likely to hurt the company’s profitability. Badger Meter’s stretched valuation is a concern. Earnings estimate for the current year has also decreased significantly in the past 4 months." (7/24/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We expect Badger will continue to benefit from favorable demand for water/flow measurement and conservation technologies in the future. While we historically have had no issues paying a premium for shares in general, we believe risk outweighs reward right here." (4/4/2018)
