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, "Shares of Robert Half have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. The company’s revenues missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in four out of the trailing five quarters. Its performance has been challenged with soft results from the Protiviti segment as well as weak domestic hiring activity in its Global Staffing Division. Despite a stronger job market, the hiring cycle remains long as employers take more time to make hiring decisions, which is negatively affecting the company’s profits. Shrinking margins at Protiviti owing to fewer high-margin clients, also poses as a hurdle. Nevertheless, Robert Half has been steadily investing in its technology to ensure future growth. It has also been trying to improve the performance of Protiviti through acquisitions and business agreements. The company also expects significant growth in the hiring activity for temporary and consulting professionals." (10/20/2017)
  • 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)
