What are analysts saying about MRC Global stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MRC Global’s second-quarter 2017 earnings missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by a penny. Notably, quarterly gross margin had contracted 60 basis points year over year. Over the last month, the stock has outperformed the industry but we fear that lingering headwinds might dent near-term results. For instance, further slump in oil prices would continue to depress the company’s downstream businesses in the upcoming quarters. Moreover, other headwinds such as foreign currency translation impact or stiff industry rivalry remain major causes of concern as well. Over the last 60 days, Zacks Consensus Estimate for the stock has moved south for 2017." (10/17/2017)
  • 2. 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)
