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 lagged the industry in the last three months due to projections for higher costs. In third-quarter fiscal 2018, adjusted EBITDA margin contracted significantly due to increased operating and distribution costs as well as input cost inflation. Consequently, the company projects soft EBITDA for fiscal 2018. In addition, it expects margins to be hurt by adverse impacts from rising commodity and freight costs as well as higher operating costs. Also, Spectrum Brands’ high debt levels pose concerns. Moreover, estimates have been witnessing downward revisions lately. However, the company is benefiting from strategic initiatives, including the sale of Battery Business to Energizer and merger with HRG Group. Further, its sales and earnings beat in third-quarter fiscal 2018 and robust outlook drive optimism. For fiscal 2018, the company expects sales to improve above category rates for most categories with benefits from currency." (10/5/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are buyers on weakness and believe that L.T. growth ops and strong free cash flow (FCF) make SPB a core holding in broader Staples. SPB has lagged over the past 6m (-33% vs. the S&P500), owing to concerns around inventory destocking, category risk and that HRG’s ongoing strategic review process will result in a sub- optimal outcome for SPB shareholders. We think this presents opportunity as the market underappreciates: (1) SPB’s proven topline track record (12% 6yr CAGR thru ’16), including opportunistic M&A and above-category organic sales growth (we est. ~2-3% annually going forward) and (2) Best in class FCF conversion of 120-130%e over the L.T. via disciplined working capital and low capex (capex ~2% of sales)."
