The analysts wrote, “We hosted senior management of ORN for a day of meetings in Boston. Interest was high, and while we continue to expect some near-term weakness for the stock once 2017 guidance is reduced, pressure could be short-lived considering dredging and reconstruction opportunities. Nevertheless, we prefer to get the number cut out of the way prior to any potential upgrade, and remain HOLD for now. Investment highlights We continue to await an update to Q3/17 results and anticipate both a near-term drag to revenues and profits with approximately 85% of the business impacted by hurricane- related delays in some capacity (with some delays as long as 3.5 weeks).””
