Zacks‘ analyst wrote, “Itron’s adjusted earnings declined 7% year over year to $0.54 per share in the second-quarter 2014, impacted by higher effective tax rate. However it came ahead of the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.36. Itron expects full year 2014 revenues will be in the range of $1.9-$1.975 billion and earnings per share to be between $1.50 and $1.80. Itron will benefit from consistent focus on lowering costs and capital expenditure. Moreover, a strong backlog, new contracts, flexible business operations and expansion in emerging markets are likely to drive long-term growth. However, the Electricity business is operating in a challenging environment and remains a matter of concern. Thus we maintain our Neutral recommendation on Itron with a target price of $41.00.”
