Analysts' Thoughts

HDS stock ran into trouble with the overall market as trade tensions escalated, but the stock appears to have hit a bottom and shares are currently trending slightly higher. Last quarter the company delivered an earnings beat and another beat would help the stock continue to erase some of its losses from over the summer. HDS sells industrial supplies, so it is particularly vulnerable to recession fears stemming from the ongoing trade war and slowing global economies. With the stock’s losses over the summer, HDS is currently an attractive value, trading at just 12 times future earnings which are forecast to rise at a modest annual rate of 2.5% over the next five years. However, the company has a solid track record of posting better than expected numbers. Analysts believe shares are undervalued and have an average price target of $48.00 on the stock.
