What are analysts saying about Tower International stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "TA Delaware, Inc. is engaged in the manufacture of engineered structural metal components and assemblies primarily serving automotive original equipment manufacturers. It offers its automotive customers body-structure stampings, frame and other chassis structures, as well as complex welded assemblies, for small and large cars, crossovers, pickups and SUVs. Its manufacturing operations consist primarily of stamping and welding operations, system and modular assembly operations, coating, and other ancillary operations. The Company uses various grades and thicknesses of steel and aluminum; including high-strength, hot- and cold-rolled, galvanized, organically coated, stainless, and aluminized steel; for the manufacture of its products. TA Delaware, Inc. is headquartered in Livonia, Michigan. " (10/18/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Tower International remains, in our view, a very attractive name to own in the automotive space given (1) the company's ability to out-compete and out-grow larger players, (2) a large new business backlog that we expect to come online above the company's average margin, and (3) a highly attractive valuation that we do not think prices in the company's opportunities. The company's 4Q16 results illustrated these points: Tower announced a major new business win related to OEM outsourcing, increased margins above our expectations, and provided detail on its above-market growth opportunity. We estimate that the company has secured significant net new business (FY17E: $65 million; FY18E: $75 million; FY19E: $150 million) and that the higher-margin profile of this backlog could lead to 120 bps of adjusted EBITDA margin expansion by FY19E. With shares still trading at a meaningful discount to peers, we think this is a compelling opportunity for investors." (2/15/2017)
