  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "H&R Block’s first-quarter fiscal 2019 loss was narrower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate but widened year over year. Revenues beat the consensus mark and improved year over year. The company is well poised to gain fromopportunities 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 has a healthy balance sheet with robust cash generation capacity. 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. The stock has underperformed the industry over the past year." (8/31/2018)
  • 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."
