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)
