What are Wall Street analysts saying about HP stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about HP stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "HP recorded stellar second-quarter fiscal 2018 results wherein revenues increased for the seventh consecutive quarter, out of which the last six recorded double-digit growth after a prolonged period of decline. Notably, HP’s efforts to turnaround the business have been commendable. The company is focusing on product innovation & differentiation, pricing, and marketing and sales activities to trigger demand for its PC and Printing products in the market which are apparently paying off as reflected from its recent quarterly reports. It should be noted that the company is gaining from the recently-acquired Samsung’s printing (S-Print) business which has also helped HP in gaining market share in the $55-billion high-end copy-machine market. Nonetheless, prices of components such as DRAM and NAND are likely to remain high in 2018, which will continue to drag down the company’s margins." (5/31/2018)
- 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We continue to forecast HPQ’s PC growth and ASPs, in particular, starting to roll back over in FY18E, and so expect its progress integrating recently acquired Samsung biz and TAM expansion through A3 copiers proving necessary for its recently expanded P/E multiple. NEUTRAL. For HPQ’s Jan-qtr, we tick up our revenue estimate to $14.0B (+10%Y/Y) from $13.8B, driven by Personal Systems/PC revenue of $9.0B (+9%Y/Y) and Printing revs $5.0B (+12%Y/Y), with Printing +7%Y/Y ex-Samsung, still recovering from the Jan-17 qtr’s depressed inventory-reduction levels. We estimate PS/PCs accounting for 64% of revenues but Printing accounting for 68% of HPQ’s profits, driven by its high-margin razor/razorblade Supplies model. Even expecting some revenue upside, however, we keep our Jan-qtr EPS at $0.42, while our FY18E EPS remains $1.79 vs. HPQ’s $1.75-1.85 guide and consensus $1.81." (2/20/2018)
- 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Normalized printing supplies up 3% y/y, a slight improvement from the 2% y/ y rate from the prior 2 quarters. Management expects normalized printing supplies to remain in the flat-to- slightly up range. Backing out impact of A3 market entry, core printing supplies at best projected to be flattish. Maintaining Hold rating and 12-month price target of $25, which is based on 14x our unchanged FY18 EPS estimate of $1.79." (11/22/2017)
