Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Welbilt stock:
  • 1. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We remain OW as we see WBT as a more defensive longer-term name to own in the space through the cycle. Organic growth aids WBT’s push for margin expansion (positive price realization, capacity utilization), leading to higher FCF generation and debt reduction. WBT is targeting being at 4x leverage by the end of the year, but the hope is it could be a fraction lower. The company continues to focus automated technology and the connected kitchen, a continuation of their previous strategy and a trend we believe will dictate the next cycle in food equipment replacement."
