What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kennametal stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kennametal stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Month to date, Kennametal's shares have outperformed the industry. We believe that the company is poised to gain in the future from its diversified customer base, international operations, favorable pricing and three initiatives, including growth, modernization and simplification. For fiscal 2018, the company anticipates earnings per share of $2.55-$2.65. The mid-point of $2.60 of its projection is higher than $2.55 in the previous guidance. Organic sales growth is predicted to be at the top end of the prior projection of 9-11%. However, rising raw-material costs and high debt levels might be detrimental to the company's performance in the quarters ahead. Also, weakening cash position is concerning." (6/6/2018)
- 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are expecting positive adjusted operating margin improvement due to expected price increases and productivity gains by the company. We are estimating sales of $594 million in Q3/18, an increase of more than 12% YOY, with adjusted EPS of 0.67. FactSet consensus estimates call for sales of $599 million and adjusted EPS of $0.72. KMT’s markets are seasonally slow during the first calendar (third fiscal) quarter. Outlook: Kennametal is looking for FY/18 organic sales growth of 9‐11%, up from a prior range of 5‐7%. End market strength, notably in oil & gas and general engineering, has increased Kennametal’s growth expectations. Full‐year adjusted EPS guidance was raised to $2.40‐2.70 following Q2/18 results from $2.30‐2.60 and includes an adverse impact of $0.15‐0.20 because of U.S. tax reform. The effective tax rate is now expected to be 22‐ 25% compared to 18‐22% expected previously." (5/1/2018)
