Ferro's most important product is frit produced for use in porcelain enamels and ceramic glazes. Ferro specialty materials require a high degree of technical service on an individual customer basis. " (5/9/2017)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are reiterating our Overweight rating on FOE given it can leverage its strong acquisition pipeline to generate solid earnings growth. The Company is also pivoting to a growth phase, during which improved mix should drive earnings growth as FOE looks to shed lower-margin products for higher-quality products organically and from acquisitions. We are reducing our 2017 EPS outlook from $1.25 to $1.15 largely to account for a more negative currency outlook as well as more modest gross margin expansion. We are raising our 12-month price target to $18.00 to reflect FOE's higher-quality portfolio, now with operating margins firmly in the low teens." (3/6/2017)
