What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hain Celestial Group stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hain Celestial Group stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Hain Celestial have declined and underperformed the industry in the past six months. The stock further came under pressure after it concluded second-quarter fiscal 2018 on a soft note. The company posted earnings of 41 cents a share that missed the consensus mark by a penny. Net sales also came marginally below the estimate, after surpassing the same in the preceding quarter. The company also witnessed low-single digit decline in sales in the United States and hinted about its plan to divest Hain Pure Protein business to increase efficiencies and simplify brand portfolio. This is inevitable given stiff competition from companies expanding their presence in the natural & organic food business. Nevertheless, with an extensive portfolio of well-known brands, Hain Celestial offers one of the strongest growth profiles in the industry. Acquisitions have been a key part of the company’s strategy to build market share." (2/9/2018)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "2Q sales were in line but EBIT/EBITDA missed by 11% and 7%, respectively. As feared, US segment sales and profitability missed expectations – sales growth was -3% (JEF 0%) & segment EBIT was down 24% (JEF -3%). Brand investments & freight costs hurt US profitability, both of which are transitory. However, disappointing sales growth points to ineffectiveness of brand investments, which is concerning. EBITDA guidance reduced but implies 2H 3% higher than Street." (2/7/2018)
- 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "F4Q17 (Jun) total adjusted net sales of $725.1M, up 2.1% y/y on a constant currency basis, was relatively inline with our estimate of $725.0M, but slightly above consensus of $719.5M." (8/29/2017)

Hain Celestial Group (NASDAQ:HAIN) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
