What are Wall Street analysts saying about H & R Block stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about H & R Block stock:
  • 1. BTIG Research analysts commented, "Block (HRB) have declined by more than 18% since management on June 12 unveiled FY19 financial guidance that included a year-over-year revenue decline they said would be due to changes in the company’s pricing structure that would “address the impact of the recent tax legislation.” The impact to which they were referring stemmed from the anticipated decision by some of HRB’s assisted tax preparation customers to opt to use the standard deduction rather than to use the company’s services. HRB’s reduced guidance demonstrated that the simplification arising from tax reform would have the negative effect on HRB’s operating performance that we had anticipated when we downgraded the stock to Sell in November 2016." (6/21/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In the past six months, H&R Block’s shares have underperformed the industry average. The company is presently facing huge litigations in connection with its operating activities. Going forward, the new simpler tax code and lower tax rate could hurt the company's pricing, thus its profits. Moreover, the company plans to close 400 U.S. offices, as popularity of online tools and the new tax law have made filing annual returns for Americans easier. Further, H&R Block expects fiscal 2019 revenues to lie between $3.05 billion and $3.10 billion, EBITDA margin is anticipated in the 24-26% band, both below market estimates. This apart, the cash position of the company remains fluctuating in nature. However, the company has an impressive earnings history in the trailing four quarters, having beaten estimates all through." (6/15/2018)
