What are analysts saying about Kemet Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kemet Corporation stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "KEMET Corporation and its subsidiaries is the world's largest manufacturer of solid tantalum capacitors and and one of the world's largest manufacturer of multilayer ceramic capacitors. According to industry sources, tantalum and ceramic capacitors are the two fastest growing sectors of the United States capacitor industry. Capacitors are electronic components that store, filter and regulate electrical energy and current flow and are one of the essential passive components used on circuit boards. " (7/14/2017)
- 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "As we contemplated potentially favorable terms of Kemet's acquisition of NEC Tokin, following indications earlier this month that it hoped to close the deal by the June quarter under a different structure than originally designed, we didn't come close to calculating a transaction as favorable as the one announced this morning. Indeed, under terms of the agreement with NEC Corp., Kemet is buying the passive-component portion of NEC Tokin for $197mn, but nearly all of that price is coming out of Tokin through a sale of a division. The net of this is that Kemet will add ~$26mn in EBITDA from Tokin (on a trailing basis) and decrease its net debt from $281mn to $207mn (or even lower if you exclude $86mn in accruals for legal liabilities). In addition, Kemet believes it can take an additional $20mn in costs out of Tokin in the next two years. Thus we see earnings and EBITDA increasing significantly in FY18 and FY19, potentially to $1 in adjusted earnings. So how to value the stock now? To be sure, there are still risks associated with further restructuring in Japan. Still, the company is in a much stronger position today than it has been in years, with a broader product offering and a more solid balance sheet. We move our PT to $10, which is roughly 12x estimated pro forma FY18 EPS of $0.80, and is in line it peers in the passive-component space." (2/24/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Kemet Corporation (NYSE:KEM) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
