What are analysts saying about MSA Safety Incorporporated stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about MSA Safety Incorporporated stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MSA Safety Inc. is engaged in the development, manufacture and supply of safety products that protect people and facility infrastructures. The company's core product lines include self-contained breathing apparatus, fixed gas and flame detection systems, handheld gas detection instruments, industrial and fire service head protection products and fall protection devices. It serves a broad range of industries, including the oil, gas and petrochemical industry, the fire service, construction, mining and general industry. MSA Safety Inc., formerly known as Mine Safety Appliances Company, is headquartered in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania. " (10/20/2017)
- 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "MSA finished the year strong as favorable mix and cost-saves partially offset persistent end-market headwinds. This is a theme that has been pretty consistent throughout the year. While broader global demand remains choppy, order rates have recently improved and makes us incrementally more positive on the year. MSA expects low-mid single-digit organic growth in 2017, which seems very achievable particularly if the industrial economy continues to rebound. Improving volumes, favorable mix, and an incremental $10 million of cost-outs should generate further margin expansion despite a soft global demand environment. MSA received $37 million settlement payments, was awarded $57 million in damages, and expects a $25-$30 million settlement payment in 1H17. FCF conversion was strong at 119%, and should remain above historical averages moving forward. With net debt to EBITDA at 1.3x and an improving FCF profile, MSA has plenty of flexibility with its capital allocation strategy moving forward. Shares are reasonable at 12.9x 2017 EBITDA with a 1.9% dividend yield, in our view. We remain Buy rated and are increasing our target price to $81, which is 12x our 2018 EBITDA estimate." (2/27/2017)

Consensus Ratings for MSA Safety Incorporporated (NYSE:MSA) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
