What are analysts saying about Visteon Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Visteon Corporation stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Visteon Corp. operates as an automotive supplier engaged in the design, engineering and manufacturing of innovative climate, electronic, interior and lighting products for vehicle manufacturers. Products offered by the Company includes climate systems, powertrain control systems, engine induction systems, cockpit modules, front and rear lighting systems, engine management systems, and electronic products comprising integrated solutions, audio and infotainment, analog/digital instrument cluster, displays, control panel. Markets served by the Company include original equipment manufacturers and automotive aftermarket. Visteon Corp. is headquartered in Michigan, USA. " (10/18/2017)
- 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We also believe the combination of higher-margin products being booked and continued internal initiatives to drive profit enhancement sets the company up well to reach the 14% EBITDA margin goal," (9/22/2017)
- 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On March 7, after the market closed, Visteon announced that it will seek to amend and extend credit facilities. We believe the company intends to amend and extend its $350M term loan due in 2021 to a seven-year loan due in 2024, potentially with a lower applicable margin rate; we estimate that the term loan balance remains at $350M face value and that the company's interest rate on this balance is about 4%. We also believe the company also hopes to upsize and extend its revolver from $200M due in 2019, to $300M due in 2022; we estimate that the company currently has no borrowings outstanding on its revolver. From a high level, we think that a lower interest rate on Visteon's term loan could free up additional cash flow for deployment in other directions, including return to shareholders and reinvestment for growth. We also continue to believe that the company might be interested in acquisitions that provide bolt-on technology capabilities." (3/8/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Visteon Corporation (NYSE:VC) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
