What are analysts saying about MRC Global stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about MRC Global stock:

  • 1. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We continue to view the company as one of the most impressive self-improvement stories of the downturn, after it successfully redeployed funds from robust counter-cyclical cash flow generation to completely revamp its balance sheet. A significantly improved balance sheet and best in class working capital efficiency enables MRC to build its cash hoard, opportunistically repurchase shares, and fund organic growth through the upcycle while maintaining the flexibility to pursue accretive M&A opportunities. The company is poised for considerable earnings growth in 2017 and has a proven track record of execution which we expect will become a key differentiator throughout the upcycle' MRC Global reported a 4Q16 adjusted loss of $0.18/sh, missing our ($0.12) estimate and consensus of ($0.10). From the results we excluded a $7MM after-tax severance/restructuring charge which reduced GAAP EPS by ~$0.07/sh. Total revenue of $719MM fell 9% QoQ (-21% YoY ex-OCTG) and was 4% below our $749MM estimate primarily due to lower-than-expected downstream revenue." (2/22/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the last one month, MRC Global's shares outperformed compared with the Zacks Categorized Steel Pipe & tubes industry. The company remains bullish in improving its business on the back of superior customer relationships, working capital optimization and operational expense management. Even so, the recently signed contracts are also anticipated to generate benefits in the near term. Over the last 60 days, Zacks Consensus Estimate for the stock has moved north for 2017. However, headwinds such as weak energy resource prices, Brexit vote and slow domestic demand of emerging markets have been weighing over MRC Global's sales. Moreover, other issues such as appreciation of the U.S. dollar, extensive industry rivalry and weakening steel price also remain major causes of worry for the company." (2/7/2017)
