Badger Meter CEO says 'well-positioned' to improve sales, earnings growth

"Our backlog and order rates remain solid, underscored by a high level of interest in our proven, innovative smart water solutions, including our newly launched larger size E-Series Ultrasonic meters and ORION Cellular LTE-M radios. We continue to leverage our expanded technology offerings across our extensive installed base, delivering significant value to our customers." CEO Kenneth Bockhorst said. "We have a healthy balance sheet for potential tuck-in acquisitions aligned with our key growth initiatives, and we are well-positioned to deliver improving sales and earnings growth while helping to preserve the world's most precious resource."

Buy
Badger Meter initiated with a Buy at Maxim
As reported earlier, Maxim analyst Tate Sullivan initiated Badger Meter with a Buy rating and a price target of $65, saying the company's introduction of new water meter technology into an "old infrastructure market" should lead to revenue and margin growth. The analyst also expects Badger Meter to boost its dividend by about 15% in 2019 - in line with the 2018 increase - and for its 2018 CEO transition to be "smooth", further supporting the premium multiple for its shares.

Berenberg upgrades 'safe haven' Badger Meter to Hold from Sell
Berenberg analyst Andrew Buscaglia upgraded Badger Meter to Hold from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $46 from $42. The stock has become more attractive as a defensive play in water, Buscaglia tells investors in a research partially titled "A safe haven in water." He points out Badger Meter has higher North America sales exposure versus most peers, as well as a "more focused product niche in a growing metering market and reliable execution."The analyst thinks the company's valuation is supported by its defensive nature.
