What are Wall Street analysts saying about Edgewell Personal Care stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Edgewell Personal Care stock:
  • 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "Wet Shave category improved to +1-2%, but EPC continues to lose share in the U.S. and globally; and (3) FQ4 EPS is expected to be down -25% y/y at the mid-point, with gross margin down (~300bps) & higher A&P spending. Importantly, the Harry’s acq. remains on track to close in and while it will likely be materially dilutive in FY20, it should set up a better trajectory for long-term growth. Looking forward, we believe a combination of continued underlying improvement, a stabilization of the Wet Shave category and better visibility/closing of Harry’s will be needed in order for shares to move higher. All of these potential catalysts will take time to develop and therefore we maintain our $30 price target." (8/7/2019)
