What are analysts saying about Mueller Water Products stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mueller Water Products stock:

  • 1. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We upgrade MWA to Outperform, with our $14 target price reflecting a peer group average forward P/E multiple of 24.3 times. Key Points: Homebuilding/land development represent key tailwinds. With home prices rising to record levels due to supply shortages and rising household formation likely to drive sustained demand (see our August 31 note HERE for more detail), the outlook for homebuilding is positive. Land development in particular is primed to accelerate as builders seek to bring new housing supply to market, and Mueller Water’s position at the early stages of residential development makes the company a timely play on the construction channel. The company’s Mueller Co. segment has an already attractive profitability profile (T4Q EBIT margin of 22.5%), and should generate further margin leverage as the top-line benefits from rising sales to the construction space." (9/5/2017)
