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, "In the past three months, Kennametal's shares have outperformed the industry. The company believes sturdier demand from prime end-markets (such as aerospace, automotive, machine tool, farm machinery, highway construction, coal mining, and oil and gas exploration) will continue to bolster its revenues in the upcoming quarters. On the other hand, stellar sales, price-realization efforts, diligent cost-cutting initiatives and restructuring moves (such as head-count reduction) will likely continue to drive its bottom-line growth in the quarters ahead. Notably, the company expects that its restructuring moves will bring in annualized pre-tax savings of roughly $10 million in fiscal 2019. For fiscal 2019, the Kennametal predicts adjusted earnings per share to be within $2.90-$3.20, higher than $2.65 recorded in fiscal 2018." (10/12/2018)
  • 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)
