What are analysts saying about TransUnion stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about TransUnion stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "TransUnion reported fourth-quarter 2016 adjusted earnings of $0.44 per share, comfortably beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.32, driven by healthy revenues and productivity improvement initiatives. The company is poised for impressive growth in the future in several of its end markets, especially the burgeoning Big Data and analytics market, with an attractive business model, significant operating leverage, low capital requirements and strong and stable cash flows. The company has over 30 petabytes of data, growing at an average of over 25% annually since 2010. TransUnion has also outperformed the industry in the last three months. Accretive acquisitions and strategic collaborations remain positives. However, TransUnion is vulnerable to the overall macroeconomic conditions, industry trends, seasonality issues, adverse foreign currency translation effects and developments in the credit market, which limit its profitability to some extent." (2/20/2017)

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "There just isn't much to pick on, in our view, and continued strong underlying fundamentals remain intact. While all the key metrics in our model are improving, we believe the strong FCF generation that is starting to come through is of particular note. We would expect the company to generate $900M-$1B of FCF in the next three years, and after accounting for $300M in share repurchases and $150M of required debt repayments, we expect ample opportunity for incremental value enhancing activities including continued M&A, and potentially additional share repurchases. If management wanted to keep the senior leverage ratio constant to the current level, we believe there would be over $1.2B-$1.3B of FCF available (after share repurchases) for M&A or additional share repurchases (in the context of FCF generation capacity in the next three years, $300M actually seems pretty wimpy). We reiterate our Buy rating on the shares and increase our target price from $39 to $43. Our target price assumes a one-turn EV/EBITDA multiple discount to EFX's valuation on 2017 and 2018 estimates." (2/15/2017)
