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, "We believe that Kennametal is poised to gain in the future from its diversified customer base, international operations, favorable pricing and three initiatives, including growth, modernization and simplification. In second-quarter 2018, the company's earnings and revenues surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 6.1% and 2% respectively. For fiscal 2019, the company predicts adjusted earnings per share to be within $2.90-$3.20, higher than $2.65 recorded in fiscal 2018. However, the company is facing issues with higher raw material costs, with cost of goods sold increasing 7.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Also, the company predicts organic revenues to grow within 5-8% in fiscal 2019, down compared with 12% growth recorded in fiscal 2018. Foreign currency translations are believed to adversely impact top-line results in the year. In the past three months, the company's shares have underperformed the industry." (8/9/2018)
  • 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)
