What are Wall Street analysts saying about Herbalife Nutrition stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Herbalife Nutrition stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Herbalife is a global network marketing company offering a range of science-based weight management products, nutritional supplements and personal care products intended to support weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. " (5/9/2018)
- 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We say hopefully for two reasons: The price range now is $98-$108 and we expect the stock to trade several percent points higher on this news – likely above $108. That would require the company to raise the indicated range. Will they do that in time to avoid pushing out the deal? Will they raise it high enough to get a full tender of all $600 million? For that matter, will Carl Icahn tender into the Dutch? We would not be surprised to see that. Our new estimate is $5.55 for 2018 ($5.40 previously) and $7.05 for 2019 ($6.85 previously). 2018 Street consensus was $5.33. Guidance for the 2Q18 is soft at $1.15- $1.35 but that imputes an ETR of 29%-34% compared to 10.7% in the 1Q18 and full year guide of 30%-35%. HLF guidance ignores stock compensation impacts on the ETR and thus it is systematically low. It is very fair to expect significant exercise of stock options and thus a lower ETR. A preliminary look at 2020 is adjusted EPS of $8.10." (5/4/2018)
