What are Wall Street analysts saying about Xylem stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Xylem stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past three months, Xylem’s shares have outperformed the industry. The company reported better-than-expected results for second-quarter 2018. Quarterly adjusted earnings of 73 cents per share outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 2.8% and also came in 23.7% higher than the year-ago tally. Also, top-line results improved 8%, year over year, organically. Xylem believes strong utilities, industrial and commercial end-market demand, acquisitions, strategic business contracts and greater operational efficacy will drive its profitability in the quarters ahead. However, escalating cost of sales resulting from input price inflation remains a major cause of worry for Xylem. The stock also looks overvalued compared with the industry for the past three months." (8/2/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe XYL is executing well, and we see ample room for margin enhancement (business simplification, sourcing, localization, etc.). While short-cycle visibility will stay variable, product breadth and organizational optimization efforts (along with recent acquisitions) support more consistent results. We look to get constructive on a better risk/reward." (8/1/2018)
