What are Wall Street analysts saying about 3M stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about 3M stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past three months, 3M’s shares have outperformed the industry. The company perceives that stronger demand for household products like Nexcare, Post-it and Scotch and ongoing product portfolio restructuring moves will boost up its revenues in the upcoming quarters. However, over the past three months, 3M’s shares look overvalued compared to the industry. Escalating costs have become a major cause of concern for the company. Inflation in the prices of major inputs and escalating interest expenses might continue to augment the company’s aggregate costs, in turn, hurting its near-term profitability. Over the past 60 days, Zacks Consensus Estimate for the stock has moved south for both 2018 and 2019." (10/5/2018)
