What are 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 remains focused on improving its efficiency and lowering operating costs through enhanced technology and stringent cost-management initiatives. The company continues to make capital investments to enhance its quality and comply with government and local regulations. At the same time, it is concentrating on strategic acquisitions to expand its business in the oil collection and refinery markets to generate incremental revenues. However, it has a dismal earnings history, woefully missing estimates in each of the trailing four quarters. Fuel price volatility and challenging macroeconomic environment are clouding the global oil picture, thereby lowering activity levels and affecting margins. The company underperformed the industry in the last three months. Clean Harbors is also highly exposed to foreign exchange rate risk, primarily related to Canada, where a large extent of its manufacturing facilities is located." (5/3/2017)
  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "Clean Harbos' 4Q results were disappointing while CY17 outlook for ~14% growth in EBITDA was in-line with our expectations of 15%-18%." (2/28/2017)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We reiterate our Top Pick Buy and raise the target price to $65 on Clean Harbors (CLH, Buy, $56.35). CLH delivered close enough on 4Q16 when accounting for $5.9mm of severance costs. FY17 guidance, in our view, is designed to meet and beat with no need for an incremental improvement in secular trends. The new reporting structure makes sense because CLH reports gross and direct revenue and intra-company reconciliation was getting more confusing. Look for 1Q17 AEBITDA of $76mm up 14% Y/Y. FY17 sales should be up 4% to 4.5% and slightly better gross margins Y/Y." (2/23/2017)
