What are Wall Street analysts saying about Msci stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Msci stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MSCI’s third-quarter results were impressive as both earnings and revenues jumped on a year-over-year basis driven by strong growth in asset-based fees and recurring subscriptions. Strong increase in new recurring subscriptions sales reflected solid demand for the company’s solutions. However, increasing demand for lower fee products from other index providers that are targeting new inflows is a headwind for the company. Additionally, higher cancellations in the Index segment is a concern. Nevertheless, the company is benefiting from the growth of equity ETF-related revenues, non-ETF passive revenues, and exchange-traded futures and options products. The company is also gaining from strong traction in client segments, like wealth management, and banks and broker dealers. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (11/14/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "1Q18 revenues above expectations. 1Q18 revenue was $351.3 mn, up 16.6% y/y (+16.0% in constant currency), vs. the FactSet consensus of $349.0 mn. Growth was driven by continued strength in the Index product line, aided by all time highs in global ETF AuM. 1Q18 adjusted EPS was $1.31, above our estimate of $1.25 and the consensus of $1.26. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 53.1%, from 1Q17’s 50.0%, vs. our est." (5/3/2018)
