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 remains optimistic about second-quarter 2018 and for the full-year 2018 due to significant rise in backlog and increased order rates. Increased shipments for FIN, a joint venture between Balkan and Upinar — which utilizes Badger Meter’s D-Flow ultrasonic technology and continued strength in Flow Instrumentation orders are likely to drive growth. Also, the company is poised to gain from growing demand for E-Series meters and ORION cellular endpoints, as well as BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics managed solution. However, in a year’s time, Badger Meter has underperformed the industry average. Also, its estimates have been going down over the past couple of months. Moreover, elevated copper prices are likely to impact the company’s margins in the near future. This apart, the company will incur charges related to the termination of its frozen pension plan in 2018, which might affect earnings." (6/19/2018)
  • 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)
