What are Wall Street analysts saying about Eastman Chemical Company stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Eastman Chemical Company stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Eastman Chemical remains focused on cost-cutting and productivity actions amid a challenging operating environment. The company should also gain from its strategic acquisitions. It also remains committed to reduce debt. However, Eastman Chemical continues to face pricing pressure. Prices of acetate tow remain weak. The company is also exposed to weakness in its Fibers unit and raw material price volatility. Eastman Chemical has also underperformed the industry it belongs to over the past six months." (10/26/2017)
- 2. Instinet analysts commented, "We reiterate Buy on EMN and raise our target from $77 to $87. We continue to view EMN as a rare value stock after valuations elsewhere in the sector expanded more dramatically. EMN appears to alternate between "solid" and "soft" quarters recently. We consider 4Q16 to be in the latter category and expect more convincing performance in 1H17 due to a) commodity spreads improving; b) pricing catching up with raw materials in more differentiated businesses; c) progress with new products that starts to moderately help earnings. Filter tow, while a source of risk, now represents only 13% of EBITDA, and will see more stable pricing over next 2-3 years, in our view. FY17E EPS at $7.35; FY18E EPS at $7.84." (2/1/2017)

Analysts' Consensus Ratings for Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE:EMN) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
