What are analysts saying about Crane stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Crane stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Since fourth-quarter 2016 results release, shares of Crane Co. outperformed the Zacks categorized Diversified Operations industry. Over the long run, it is well positioned to leverage benefits from its diversified product portfolio, large client base and organic and inorganic initiatives. In the fourth quarter, Crane's earnings were $1.02 per share, above the Zacks Consensus Estimate, but down 8.9% year over year. Asbestos provision (after-tax) adversely impacted earnings by $2.13 per share. Also, the company has extended its asbestos liability estimates through 2059. For 2017, Crane anticipates earnings of $4.30-$4.55 per share range, sales of $2,690 million and core sales growth of 0-2%. Forex woes will adversely impact sales by 3% while divestitures will reduce sales growth by 0.5%. Also, Crane's exposure to near-term risks, like stiff competition and uncertain global economic conditions might impact its financials." (2/2/2017)

  • Seaport Global Securities analysts commented, "CR reported Q4 results above our forecast and issued 2017 guidance that captures our estimate at the low end. While the net asbestos liability increased $125MM, long-term investors should be comforted that CR's visibility has substantially increased, through 2059, and the net annual outflows have remained essentially unchanged. However, at a time when investors have grown accustomed to expecting this balance to be reduced, the increase in debt is a disappointment. While P&M has driven stronger growth in the fourth quarter and stronger expected growth in 2017, the company's EV/EBITDA and FCF valuations appear fairly balanced. Our rating moves to Neutral (previously was Accumulate), while our price target moves to $72 (from $71)." (2/1/2017)
