What are analysts saying about Robert Half International stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Robert Half International stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Estimates have been declining since the company reported its weaker-than-expected fourth-quarter 2016 earnings and revenues. In fact, the stock has declined in comparison to the Zacks categorized industry growth since past one month due to sluggish results. Robert Half's total revenue declined 3.1% year over year in the fourth quarter, due to decline in U.S. staffing revenues, while earnings declined 14.1% as the company’s clients are taking longer to make hiring decisions. In fact, this marked the second consecutive quarter of earnings decline in the last 26 quarters. Though the company has been experiencing higher demand for services provided by skilled professionals and Protiviti is also adding to year-over-year revenue gains, a tightening U.S. job market continues to put pressure on the labor supply, particularly at higher skill levels." (2/21/2017)

  • Instinet analysts commented, "Optimism in the Air" Could Soon Be in EPS. 4Q16 holds many records. In temp, it marks the first quarter of negative growth since March 2010, the seventh consecutive quarter of decelerating growth, and the steepest deceleration seen since 3Q12. Are RHI (and the U.S. economy) truly headed south? We would argue that is not the case. Despite the apparent weakness, we highlight several key positives, including a more muted deceleration in early January vs. prior-quarter trends, improved order levels in the new year, and an upbeat tone about client sentiment, which stands in stark contrast with early-2008 commentary when signs of an imminent recession began to surface and an overwhelmingly positive impact on RHI from upcoming Trump policies. FY17E EPS at $2.68; FY18E EPS at $3.01." (1/27/2017)
  • BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "loathe" to make this type of rating change, analyst Jeffrey Silber said, "The weak revenue trends (same day, constant currency basis) were relatively broad-based, ranging from 'early cycle' OfficeTeam to 'later-cycle' permanent placement."Despite acknowledging that some of the dampened third-quarter guidance was because of "expected revenue disruption and expenses of migrating to new IT systems," the analyst said deteriorating top-line trends cannot be ignored."[W]ith its client base getting 'incrementally more cautious,' it gives us some pause as to whether the company can meaningfully reaccelerate growth again this cycle. As such, it's tough for us to continue to recommend this name," (7/27/2016)
