What are Wall Street analysts saying about Spectrum Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Spectrum Brands stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Spectrum Brands is taking strategic initiatives like mergers, acquisitions and divestitures to enhance its business portfolio and drive growth. The company recently agreed to sell Global Auto Care business for $1.25 billion and concurrently signed an amended deal for the sale of Global Batteries & Lighting businesses. Management plans to use the divestiture proceeds to develop its core business units, reduce debt, reinvestment in strategic buyouts and share buybacks. Moreover, the company will retain the Appliances unit, comprising the Personal Care and Small Appliances businesses. However, the stock has underperformed the industry in the past month. The company posted dismal fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results, wherein the top and bottom lines missed estimates. Earnings also fell year over year owing to lower margins and higher distribution costs. Moreover, higher operating and input costs are hurting EBITDA for a while now." (11/22/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We lower our FY19/FY20 EBITDA ests. by $51MM/$72MM to $563MM/$568MM & our price target by $20 to $50 (implying a ~7-8x pro-forma multiple) to reflect what we believe is a much more challenged fundamental backdrop than even our prior conservative ests. contemplated. In short, we weren’t surprised shares were meaningfully off today (-19% vs. the S&P500 -2%) and don’t see today’s weakness as a buying opportunity. We remain cautious given our ongoing concerns about SPB’s execution & biz cyclicality." (11/15/2018)
  • 3. Rowe analysts commented, "In a move we have encouraged since 2013, management announced strategic options for Global Batteries & Appliances (GB&A). The move will make SPB a faster organic grower and a higher-margin company. A potential deal—sometime in 2018—should provide significant financial flexibility to allow management to create meaningful shareholder value. It should also remove the AMZN battery overhang. We believe the deal could gross SPB $2.9-3.2B. SPB may be able to use HRG’s NOL to offset the tax hit, as Batteries has almost no cost basis and Appliances has a lower (but higher) one. Maintain Outperform." (1/3/2018)
