EPS Actual 1.89 1.96 1.69 1.76

Stock Performance

Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 1.73 percent. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can be satisfied going into this earnings release. Analysts have adjusted their estimates higher for EPS and revenues over the past 90 days. Analysts seem to have settled on a Sell rating with Rockwell Automation.
