Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Badger Meter stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Badger Meter has underperformed the industry on an average in the past year. Increased copper prices will continue to dent the company’s margins in the near term. This apart, the company will likely incur charges related to the termination of its frozen pension plan in 2018, which might affect earnings. Badger Meter‘s stretched valuation is a concern. The company’s trailing 12-month price earnings ratio is higher than that of its industry. Earnings estimates have reduced by 14.4% in the last three months from $1.60 per share to $1.37 on negative investor sentiments. However, Badger Meter remains optimistic about earnings potential in 2018 due to significant rise in backlog and increased order rates. The company is further expected to gain from growing demand for E-Series meters and ORION cellular endpoints." (7/14/2018) 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) Who are some of Badger Meter's key competitors?
