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. 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. Over the past 30 days, Zacks Consensus Estimate for the company’s earnings has remained unchanged for both 2018 and 2019." (10/13/2018) 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) Has Xylem been receiving favorable news coverage?
