What are analysts saying about Robert Half International stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Robert Half has underperformed the Zacks categorized industry over the past six months. A decline in U.S. staffing revenues has been hitting sales since the past few quarters. We note that despite stable U.S. economic environment, the hiring cycle remains long as employers take more time to make hiring decisions, which is negatively affecting company’s profits. Moreover, despite a better-than-expected first-quarter 2017 results, Robert Half’s earnings and revenues declined year-over-year, possibly due to currency headwinds. Shrinking margins at Protiviti was further responsible for the earnings decline. Uncertainties in the European region and higher employee benefits related expenses further create challenges for the company." (6/21/2017)
  • 2. 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)
