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 looks well poised to gain from opportunities offered by the tax industry that has been growing since 2005. The company has undertaken several initiatives to boost both assisted and DIY businesses. The company continues to focus on competitive pricing, investment in product innovation and user experience improvement. The company's solid cash position allows it to pursue opportunities that exhibit true potential and positions it for sustainable clients, revenue and earnings growth. However, escalating costs due to heavy investments in technology and operations might weigh on H&R Block's bottom line, thereby affecting its share price, which has underperformed its industry over the past year. Seasonality causes considerable fluctuations in revenues and makes profit forecasting difficult. The company also faces huge litigations." (2/18/2020)

Our estimates call for fiscal 2020 revenue of $3.173 billion (+2.5% YOY), adjusted EBITDA of $801.0 million (+0.3% YOY) and adjusted EPS of $1.96. The FactSet consensus calls for revenue of $3.162 billion (+2.1% YOY), adjusted EBITDA of $807.0 million and adjusted EPS of $1.98 (-7.9% YOY) – eight estimates ranging from a low of $1.94 to a high of $2.07."
