What are Wall Street analysts saying about GP Strategies stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about GP Strategies stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "GP Strategies Corporation, whose operating subsidiary is General Physics Corporation, is a NYSE listed company. General Physics is a global provider of training and e-Learning solutions, management consulting, and engineering services, improving the effectiveness of organizations by customizing solutions that enhance an organization's people, processes or technology. " (3/6/2018)
- 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are cautiously optimistic about the reorganization, restructuring and recent changes in management. Given its improving organic growth prospects, a resumption of tuck‐in acquisition activity (GPX is targeting acquisitions with combined annual revenues of $50 million over the next 12 months, up from $25 million in 2017) and an expanded share repurchase program (recently increased by $10 million), we are reiterating our OUTPERFORM investment rating and our 12‐month price target of $30." (2/26/2018)
- 3. B. Riley analysts commented, "We remain comfortable with our estimates for revenues, adjusted EBITDA and EPS, all of which are approximately in line with Street expectations. Our projections assume Y/Y growth across all segments save for Sandy, which faces a difficult compare for both training and publication revenues. In Learning Solutions (LS), we model mid-single digit Y/Y growth driven by the initial ramp of key wins in Europe with a large pharmaceutical customer and more recently, ABB. We anticipate a return to positive growth in Professional & Technical Services (PTS) on increasing contribution from oil and gas customers." (10/31/2017)

GP Strategies (NYSE:GPX) Analysts' Consensus Rating (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.
