What are Wall Street analysts saying about Crane stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Crane stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In a year’s time, Crane's shares have outperformed the industry by a huge margin. The company is also enjoying bullish analyst attention, as the company’s Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2018 has moved north over the past couple of months. Crane's emerging track record, robust earnings growth profile and cash generation indicate a bright future for the company. Going forward, the company expects to gain from solid organic growth potential, tax cuts and its repositioning initiatives. The Crane Currency buyout will strengthen the company’s foothold in the currency and payments market, and will be accretive to earnings this year itself. However, the company faces a complex and competitive environment, and is thus vulnerable to adverse trade regulations and uncertain economic conditions." (6/6/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We recently spent a day on the road with Crane management. While the company’s message remains consistent with the outlook provided at the recent investor day, we are confident in the potential upside from the Crane Currency acquisition, and believe the expected mid-teens EPS growth through 2021 will be a positive catalyst for the stock. Crane remains vulnerable to broader economic factors, but there appears to be little near-term risk associated with the steel and aluminum tariffs, based on what we know about the implementation, and the macro assumptions embedded in the 2018 guidance appear conservative. We like the Crane Currency acquisition, and believe that as management delivers on the earnings contribution from the acquisition (as well as the repositioning), we will see a steady improvement in investor sentiment. Much of the focus was on the timing of the Crane Currency integration." (3/12/2018)
