What are Wall Street analysts saying about Clean Harbors stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Clean Harbors stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Clean Harbors’ first-quarter 2018 adjusted loss was narrower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Revenues surpassed the consensus mark and improved year over year. We appreciate the company's focus on improving its efficiency and lowering operating costs through enhanced technology, process efficiencies and stringent cost management. Further, the company continues to make capital investments to enhance its quality and comply with government and local regulations. It also offers a broad range of services such as end-to-end hazardous waste management, emergency spill response, industrial cleaning and maintenance, and recycling services. Despite such positives, shares of Clean Harbor underperformed the industry in the past six months. Moreover, the company remains highly exposed to foreign currency exchange rate risks. The company’s seasonal demand cycle is likely to hurt its earnings." (5/4/2018)

Investment highlights We remain positive on macro drivers and beneficial market trends for each of CLH’s businesses and believe that the company is poised for a rebound year in 2018. Nevertheless, optics of below-consensus guidance could make the stock range-bound in the near term." (1/18/2018)
