Republic Services, Inc.

Read MoreHide Full Article

Republic Services reported relatively healthy fourth-quarter 2015 results with adjusted earnings exceeding the Zacks Consensus Estimate by $0.01. The company is realigning its field support functions by combining two organizational layers into one and expects these initiatives to contribute approximately $25 million of annual cost savings from 2018. Republic Services is also focusing on a series of quality acquisition opportunities for a healthy long-term growth within its top 25 markets. Healthy inorganic growth remains another tailwind for the company. However, Republic Services remains exposed to commodity price headwinds, which will likely have a negative impact on earnings. Seasonal factors, increased competitive pressure and soft economic conditions are also likely to peg back its profitability to some extent. In addition, margin pressure remains a bottleneck for the company.
