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 has surpassed the industry in the past three months, which can be attributable to management’s raised outlook for 2019, following robust first-quarter 2018 results. Both top and bottom lines increased year over year and marked their second consecutive beat. While earnings were driven by robust sales and tax gains, sales were backed by contributions from new products and strength across most regions. Also, U.S. volumes returned to growth ahead of plans. However, the company’s soft gross margin trend lingered, due to high self-manufacturing costs and currency headwinds. Also, volumes have been volatile in China, which remains a concern. Nevertheless, we expect Herbalife to continue gaining from its investments in distributors, which is aimed at supporting direct selling. Also, the company’s seed-to-feed strategy should keep helping it cater well and offer best products to members and their customers." (7/3/2018)
  • 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)
