The analysts wrote, “We believe that ORN could warrant a Buy rating once the impact from the recent hurricanes is reflected in consensus estimates. While headwinds were likely significant for revenues and even more so for operating income, the subsequent expected pick-up in dredging activity should be meaningful and last for multiple quarters. We also believe the company‚Äôs strategy to expand its industrial work is gaining greater clarity and offers substantial longer-term opportunities for growth and margin expansion. For now, we reiterate our HOLD ahead of what are likely to be imminent estimate reductions.””
