What are analysts saying about Granite Construction Incorporated stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Granite Construction Incorporated stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Granite Construction, Inc. is a diversified heavy civil constractor and construction materials producer. The Company concentrates on ifrastructure projects including roads, bridges, dams, tunnels, canals and rapid transit facilities. The Company also manufactures asphalt, concrete base rock and other construction materials. The Company has offices in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Texas, Georgia and California. " (10/17/2017)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We expect better performance during the balance of 2017, followed by a strong inflection for margins in 2018. With the cessation of tough weather, beneficial work has now commenced that will help offset the negative effects of accelerated Large Project activity as the company works to complete certain challenged jobs. Activity in the Materials segment is also picking up, and we expect steady margin improvement for Materials and the Construction segment throughout the year, accelerating in 2018 as funding from the CA Transportation Act begins to flow through. We continue to view GVA as one of the best positioned infrastructure plays in our coverage universe given meaningful leverage from Materials and strong position to CA and other markets with boosted funding levels. We are largely maintaining our estimates and reiterate a BUY rating and $70 price target." (5/3/2017)
  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We are lowering our 2017 estimates following Granite's 4Q16 results, which were below our estimates, mostly due to a handful of company-specific problem projects within the large construction segment and wet weather impacts in California. We continue to expect solid revenue growth and margin expansion, especially with Granite's robust project pipeline, the new Administration's focus on infrastructure, and an ease in regulations, which should help to add to GVA's positive momentum. Due to our lowered estimates, we are lowering our price target to $67 (from $70), which still provides 20% upside from current levels. We reiterate our Outperform rating, as we believe Granite is one of the best-positioned contractors to benefit from the more than $200B in infrastructure bonds that were passed locally in the November election, providing a solid runway for the company in 2017. In addition, the expected financial benefits of the FAST Act, the potential passage of a California highway bill, and the general focus on North American infrastructure spending by the new Administration could prove to be significant catalysts for GVA starting in late 2017."
