Ferro produces a variety of specialty coatings, colors, ceramics, plastics, chemicals, and related products and services. 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. " (8/17/2017)
  • 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)
