What are analysts saying about United Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about United Technologies stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "United Technologies reported solid third-quarter 2016 results as adjusted earnings comfortably beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by $0.08. The business mix and diversification allows the company to deliver consistent earnings and dividend growth over the quarters. The company remains focused on four key priorities to fuel its growth engine that include flawless execution, innovation for growth, structural cost reduction and disciplined capital allocation. United Technologies also raised the lower end of its 2016 earnings guidance on favorable growth dynamics. However, United Technologies is exposed to market price volatility and availability risks related to raw materials, which hamper its ability to meet delivery schedules and increase operating costs. With over 8,000 employees, the company also has a considerable presence in the U.K. Consequently, the company is susceptible to high operating risks following the Brexit referendum." (10/26/2016)

  • Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We continue to think consensus EPS for overall UTX is ~$0.30 too high for 2018 (see our recent deep-dive report Cutting estimates on Otis), and ongoing downwards pressure will likely mean that the valuation multiple, while relatively low, struggles to expand. We therefore retain our Neutral rating. 2017 commentary suggests gross margin pressure will persist in China… One of our main concerns on Otis is the China price war intensification evident YTD among OEMs, and the fact that this has not yet manifested in the Otis P&L. As this year’s orders (better volume market share for Otis, but worse pricing) start to be billed as sales, we think gross margins will struggle in 2017. Kone’s comments suggest that next year will see some moderation in the OE unit order declines in China (after a 5-10% decline in 2016), but declines are still likely (while property trends have shown stabilization this year, developers remain very cautious), and there may be no relief in pricing, with ‘competition to remain intense’. Hence, we could see this gross margin pressure persist for Otis through 2018." (9/30/2016)

  • Argus analysts commented, "We also expect the company to benefit from recent acquisitions. Management is focused on rewarding shareholders; it recently boosted the dividend by 10% and has a share repurchase program. The stock appears favorably valued relative to peers based on P/E and price/sales. We are reiterating our BUY rating and raising our target price to $74, which assumes an industry-average P/E ratio on next year’s EPS. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IR shares have outperformed over the last quarter, gaining 28% while the S&P 500 has risen 10%. Over the past year, the shares have performed in line with the market, with a flat return." (5/5/2016)
