What are analysts saying about PolyOne Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PolyOne Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "PolyOne Corporation is an international polymer services company with operations in thermoplastic compounds, specialty resins, specialty polymer formulations, engineered films, color and additive systems, elastomer compounding and thermoplastic resin distribution. PolyOne was formed from the consolidation of the former M.A. Hanna Company and The Geon Company. Information on the Company's products and services can be found at www.polyone.com. " (8/31/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We have upgraded our medium-term margin forecasts to give more credit for underlying mix improvement even assuming a still-choppy environment. We forecast a 10% EPS CAGR through 2020E, and a 8% average FCF yield before dividends over the next 4 years. The 2020 targets imply $0.85 EPS upside to our forecast -- and a bridge to ~$4.00 EPS if demand picks up as well." (3/2/2017)
  • 3. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "POL beat top and bottom-line estimates in Q4, although operating margins declined sequentially and y/y in SEM, Color, DSS, and Distribution. While near-term revenue growth may be challenging, we believe POL's management team should drive growth over the long term. We believe top-line growth or continued margin expansion should attract incremental investors, and will continue to look for progress in DSS." (1/30/2017)
