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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "H&R Block is well poised to gain from opportunities offered by growing tax industry in both assisted and DIY channels. It is currently investing heavily in price, technology and operational excellency aiming to achieve overall objectives of clients, revenue, and earnings growth over the long term. The company has a healthy balance sheet with robust cash generation capacity. A strong cash position allows H&R Block to pursue opportunities that exhibit true potential and positions it for sustainable clients, revenue and earnings growth. The stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to, over the past year. On the flip side, H&R Block is likely to witness escalation in costs due to investments. Moreover, as impacts of seasonality, revenues stay significantly down and the company incurs loss in first three quarters of fiscal year." (11/13/2018) 2. 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."
