What are Wall Street analysts saying about Herbalife Nutrition stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Herbalife Nutrition stock:
  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We are updating our estimates following 4Q results & CAGNY presentation. Despite softer than expected 4Q results & uncertainty around China business, we maintain that FY19 guidance will likely end up being conservative owing to positive momentum in sales in most regions ex-China. We continue to believe that HLF can sustainably grow sales at least in line with its TAM growth rate (~6%), expand margins, & drive incremental earnings upside via accretive FCF usage." (2/26/2019)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We are boosting our 2019 estimate to $3.05 (previously $2.90) and our 2020 estimate becomes $3.55, up $0.20. Our price target goes to $70 or 20x the 2020 number. HLF remains a high-margin CPG company growing at 6%-9% organically, and likely faster than that in 2019-2020. It is accelerating sales growth which is a key goal. RISKS: Currency cuts both ways and will be a drag on FY19 results. HLF has an ongoing year-old FCPA matter with the SEC and DOJ. Yet one has to say that the risk profile of Herbalife is perhaps the lowest it has been in 10 years." (2/19/2019)
  • 3. 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)
