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 underperformed the industry. The company is facing issues with higher raw material costs. The company predicts raw material costs — for tungsten, steel and cobalt — to inflate in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. However, some relief is likely to come in from favorable pricing. Also, a weak cash position and huge debt levels might be detrimental to the company's financials." (7/4/2018)
  • 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)
