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 positive about the second half of the year attributable to sizable backlog, continued interest in flagship products and moderating of copper prices. 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. It is going to release the next version of the E-series residential meters, which will be available by the year-end. Strategic buyouts will likely help improve its product and technology portfolio, and increase global footprint. Inclusion in AT&T’s Smart City Alliance 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, any possible rise in copper prices will likely hurt the company’s financial performance going forward." (10/9/2018) 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) Has Badger Meter been receiving favorable news coverage?
