What are Wall Street analysts saying about Meredith stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Meredith stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Meredith have slid and lagged the industry in the past three months. The stock got hit following fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein revenues fell year over year. Also, management’s commentary of commencing fiscal 2020 at a lower profit point than initially expected and soft adjusted earnings view for fiscal year added to woes. Industry experts pointed that Time Inc. buyout is not generating desirable results. Looking into fiscal 2020, Meredith expects lower contribution from consumer related revenues at National Media Group due to low-margin magazine subscriptions inside the legacy Time Inc. brands. Also, Local Media Group will be cycling against record political advertising revenues generated in fiscal 2019. Nonetheless, Meredith expects mid-single digit growth in digital advertising revenue in National Media Group." (11/6/2019)
  • 2. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We expect value to be unlocked over time through incremental asset sales (TV?), with EBITDA reaching the billion dollar goal by 2021, reinforcing the acquisition. We would characterize the ~$10 million shortfall in NMG as squarely a result of 1) not having clean comparisons; 2) improperly reflecting asset sales and seasonality, with the bulk of the “miss” coming in “other” categories (same for the guide in both NMG and Local). Print declines in the mid-teens largely matched our forecast, while subscription revenue came in a touch higher than our projection. If there was an area of disappointment, it was the continued lack of growth in digital, with management calling out ongoing disruption to operations during the integration process." (2/12/2019)
