  • Goldman Sachs Resumes Coverage on Lexmark International at "Sell" (LXK)

    Analysts at Goldman Sachs reinstated coverage on Lexmark International Inc (LXK) on Tuesday, giving the printer maker a bearish rating as its shares are currently fully valued with headwinds going forward. The analysts rate LXK as a "Sell" and see shares hitting $23. This price target suggests a 25% downside to Monday's closing price of $30.79.

Lexmark shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is up +32.77% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Lexmark International (LXK) have a dividend yield of 3.90% based on last night's closing price of $30.79 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.20 per share.

  • Lexmark Q1 Profit Falls 43% on Lower Revenues; Adjusted EPS Tops Estimates (LXK)

    Printer maker Lexmark International Inc (LXK) reported before the bell on Tuesday a drop in first quarter profit on lower revenues. However, adjusted earnings and revenue were able to top Wall Street views. The Lexington, Kentucky-based company posted a first quarter profit of $34.8 million, or 54 cents per share, down from $60.8 million, or 84 cents per share, earned last year. Adjusting for certain items, Lexmark posted a quarterly EPS of 88 cents. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, this just beat the expectation that the company would earn 87 cents per share in the quarter. Lexmark's total revenue for the first quarter fell about 11% to $884.3 million from $992.5 million in revenue last year. Despite the revenue decline, it still topped the analysts' estimates of $873.62 million. Attributing to the fall in total revenue was the decline in product revenue in the quarter, which came in at $787.4 million versus $914.9 million last year. "In the first quarter, Lexmark delivered revenue and EPS at the high end of our guidance range, and we continued to grow our higher value segments," said Paul Rooke, Lexmark chairman and chief executive officer. "We also remain focused on our transition from a hardware-centric to a solutions-centric company with the acquisitions of two software companies and the recently announced agreement to sell Lexmark's inkjet-related technology and assets." Looking ahead to the second quarter, the company says it expects to earn 42 cents to 52 cents per share. On an adjusted basis, the company expects to earn 80 cents to 90 cents per share, with revenues falling 6% to 8%. Analysts are expecting Lexmark to earn an adjusted 89 cents per share in the second quarter. Lexmark shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is up +9.75% year-to-date.

  • Citigroup Gets Bearish on Lexmark; Says Stock is a "Sell" Based on Negative Industry Trends (LXK)

    Printer maker Lexmark International Inc. (LXK) on Tuesday received some bearish commentary from analysts at Citigroup. The firm started coverage on LXK with a "Sell" rating and $18 price target, suggesting a 19% downside to the stock's Monday closing price of $22.10. A Citigroup analyst commented, "We are initiating on Lexmark shares with a Sell rating and a $18 target price as we continue to have concerns about the company's ability to grow revenue and operating income over the medium to long term given unfavorable secular demand trends (mobility and cloud) coupled with weak macro trends which are likely to hamper print demand trends. While the company's recent announcement to restructure their businesses by exiting the inkjet business is a positive longer term, we believe near to mid term fundamentals remain challenged and we expect the road to recovery from recent restructuring to be a painful one. We expect estimates to come lower over time as the exit of the inkjet business is factored in." Lexmark shares fell 23 cents, or -1%, in premarket trading Tuesday. The Bottom Line Shares of Lexmark (LXK) have a 5.43% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $22.10. The stock has technical support in the $17-$19 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $25-$26 price levels. Lexmark International Inc. (LXK) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.0 out of 5 stars.
