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 year, which can be attributable to the company’s solid past record that was retained in third-quarter 2018. Notably, both top and bottom lines improved year over year, and topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate, for the fourth consecutive time. Results were driven by solid volumes in most regions. Incidentally, the quarter marked the second highest volume points achieved by the company as well as highest year-on-year volume points growth.  Further, robust sales and gross margin fueled the bottom line. These aspects encouraged management to raise volumes outlook, while it also pulled up its earnings view for 2018. Further the company is also on track with new product launches. However, Herbalife’s solid international presence keep it exposed to adverse currency movements. Incidentally, management updated its 2018 sales view, to account for a 70-bps negative currency impact." (12/11/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "3Q results & 2019 guidance point to strong top-line momentum after years of depressed growth. Moreover, following yesterday’s Investor Day, we have greater conviction in our view that HLF can sustainably grow sales at least in line with its TAM growth rate of ~6%, while also expanding margins and driving incremental earnings upside via accretive FCF usage. HLF’s technology investments should magnify its “distributor difference” and enable further share gains." (11/1/2018)
  • 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We expected double-digit top line growth, but this was super-impressive. China rose 27%; North America rose 20.1%; South America was down 10.1% in dollars but about flat in constant currency. Total company sales in constant currency (ex. Venezuela) rose 19%. Volume points rose 15% with China up 19% and Asia-Pacific up 24,3%. All markets experienced powerful volume growth except South & Central America. Gross margin rose 230 BP on some improved pricing, and benefits from vertical manufacturing offset to a degree by F/X impacts. EBIT margin rose 320 BP aided by a cost shift out since the 3Q18 did not have convention expense that was contained in 3Q17; the convention will be next week. The tax rate was higher than expected at 32.2%. Herbalife is hosting its first March 2012." (10/31/2018)
