What are analysts saying about Moody's Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Moody's Corporation stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Moody’s shares underperformed the Zacks categorized Miscellaneous Financial Services industry, over the past one year. However, we remain optimistic given its strength in diverse operations and strategic acquisitions. The company’s fourth-quarter 2016 adjusted earnings per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate driven by higher revenues. For full-year 2017, Moody’s anticipates revenues to increase in the mid-single-digit percent range while EPS is anticipated in the range of $5.15–$5.30. However, we remain cautious owing to several issues. These include heightened political risk, market volatility and regulatory headwinds." (2/23/2017)

  • Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We remain cautiously optimistic regarding the volatile issuance market. Management announced 2017 guidance, with top line projections in line with expectations. The company has wrapped up pending litigation and has completed most of the payments associated with the DOJ case. We continue to look for better visibility on the outlook for issuance, especially given the uncertainty associated with Brexit, and possible impact from potential tax reform and repatriation from the new administration. Moody's reported strong overall results, driven by solid outperformance in the Ratings business. Despite U.S. corporate debt issuance declining y/y in the quarter, overall domestic Issuance was up for the period. Moody's expects the Issuance business to be up in the mid-single digits in 2017, up from the 1.6% growth in 2016. Potential tax reform could have a material impact on U.S. corporate debt issuance, but it remains too early to tell what the impact from a repatriation or change in tax laws would have on issuance."
