What are analysts saying about Nielsen N.V. stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nielsen N.V. stock:

  • Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "We attended the Synaptics analyst day held at the company’s headquarters in San Jose. Senior management provided an updated outlook on the technology roadmap —gone was discussion regarding bold moves, haptics, and exploring new markets discussed last year—and in was a focus on core technologies for automotive, next generation fingerprint (underglass) and DDIC (shift towards TDDI and OLED). The company also updated its financial outlook. We downgraded the stock on Monday (at $56.38) and walked away confident in this thesis. Synaptics faces numerous industry shifts and competitive threats that may prove too difficult for the company to manage smoothly. This argument can be seen in the many industry growth rates given, yet revenues and operating income don’t match up." (12/14/2016)

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nielsen Holdings is a leading global information and measurement company which offers media and marketing information on what consumers watch and buy on a global and local basis. The company reported decent third-quarter results, with the bottom line beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate and the top line missing the same. Continued dividend payment and share repurchase reflect Nielsen’s financial strength and commitment to return value to shareholders. Also, the company's product launches are progressing well and should drive revenues in the near term. However, continued investments in technology and infrastructure could weigh on margins and profitability, going forward." (10/28/2016)
