What are analysts saying about Regal Beloit Corporation stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Regal Beloit reported relatively healthy second-quarter 2017 results with year-over year increase in adjusted earnings and revenues on the back of modest organic growth and positive order trends. The company continues to focus on prudent investment decisions for a disciplined capital allocation, strong and flexible balance sheet and cash flow enhancement to support dividend growth. A robust operating platform and an efficient management team will likely help in the execution of its strategic priorities and drive net asset value in the future. Regal Beloit has outperformed the industry year to date. However, margin pressures, high concentration risks and adverse foreign currency translation remain headwinds for the company. With the rise in competition within the industry, Regal Beloit is witnessing a decline in its product prices, which in turn is detrimental to its overall margins. High R&D costs also remain a bottleneck for the company." (8/10/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We hosted investor meetings with CEO Mark Gliebe, and Vice President Rob Rehard, in Boston earlier this week. The company seems to be making good progress in its efforts to drive Simplification, and the end-demand backdrop remains broadly favorable. Management should be in a position to start to deploy the balance sheet towards M&A again in 2018, but the broader focus of the company is shifting towards organic sales growth (and the headwind from HVAC OEM dual-sourcing has largely run its course), as opposed to its ‘serial acquirer’ status of the past. If the organic growth initiatives can bear fruit, the combination of this with margin expansion from Simplification, should be sufficient to push EPS over $6 (up from a range of $4-5 over 2010-2017E), and increase RBC’s valuation from its still heavily discounted level." (6/29/2017)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Inline-ish quarter, with positive commentary on LSD organic growth in '17 with some margin expansion. This will be a short cycle beneficiary, but we remain concerned about the competitive positioning of the motors portfolio longer term, and border adjusted tax implications could be a two-edge sword with respect to pricing and competitiveness. We reiterate Hold, target price to $78, or 15X 2018 EPS of $5.20." (2/9/2017)
