What are analysts saying about Versum Materials stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Versum Materials stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Versum Materials, Inc. is an electronic materials supplier to the semiconductor industry. The company's primary business segment consists of Materials and Delivery Systems and Services. It provides specialty process gas, cleaners and etchants, slurries, organosilanes and organometallics deposition films and equipment. Versum Materials, Inc. is headquartered in Tempe, Arizona. " (8/2/2017)
- 2. Aegis analysts commented, "Versum is a supplier of high purity gases, specialty materials and equipment used by semiconductor and displays manufacturing industries. Since the Company's creation via tax-free spin Air Products last Fall, VSM shares have performed well, appreciating ~33% compared to the S&P's ~10% gain. Electronic materials suppliers, including Versum along with peers Cabot Microelectronics (CCMP) and Entegris (ENTG), are in the process of being re-rated higher, we believe, as a result of sustainably-favorable developments in the semiconductor end-market which these companies serve. Because of the secular nature of this fundamental inflection, we would want to have some long exposure to this space. However, we see a more compelling risk/reward associated with Versum's peer Entegris. Our price objective for VSM implies additional appreciation from current levels, but not enough to justify a Buy recommendation. Hence, our Hold rating." (3/17/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Versum Materials (NYSE:VSM) (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.
