What are analysts saying about Waste Connections stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Waste Connections stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Waste Connections reported solid fourth-quarter 2016 results with nearly two-fold rise in revenues and healthy year-over-year increase in earnings. With prime location of disposal sites within competitive markets and vertically integrated services, Waste Connections has optimal asset positioning to generate higher profitability. The merger of Waste Connections with Progressive Waste Solutions has arguably created an industry leader with enhanced scale and a stronger financial profile. The company has also outperformed the industry in the last three months. However, volatility in crude oil prices, stringent health and safety laws, and seasonal factors lower predictably in revenue generation and increase operating risks. It also operates in capital-intensive industry that includes larger and better capitalized companies, which adversely affects its ability to invest in substantial labor and capital resources." (2/24/2017)

  • Wedbush analysts commented, "We continue to view Waste Connections' (WCN) favorable franchise market structure as well as its focus on secondary markets as significant barriers to entry driving high cash flow conversion on an incremental ton of municipal solid waste. We look for WCN to benefit from core price-volume growth discipline and optimization of the Progressive Waste (Progressive) assets. We are comfortable with low-mid-single-digit top-line organic growth along with leading cash flow conversion as reasons for shares to remain a core holding in Small-Mid Cap growth portfolios. Furthermore, we remain confident in capital allocation decisions including further strategic acquisitions with net debt/EBITDA leverage ratio below 3.0x. 4Q revenue of $1.049 billion and AEBITDA of $325.4 million beat our estimates as top line exceeds internal budgets by ~3%. In part, revenue quality was better than management had feared while higher core price, volumes and recycling prices all beat our estimates' 2017 M&A environment should be favorable and WCN is likely to see additional transactions aggregating in excess of $125 million in revenue."
