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 slid and underperformed the industry in the past six months. The bearish run can be attributed to second straight negative sales and earnings surprises in second-quarter fiscal 2019, wherein both the top and bottom lines fell year over year. Following the results, management slashed its fiscal 2019 view. We note that the company witnessed sluggish sales performance across the United States, United Kingdom and Rest of World along with soft margins during the quarter. While management is skeptical about its near-term performance, the company is seeing some sequential improvements and working toward reverting to growth in the United States. Further, the company is on track to simplify its business and allocate its resources toward areas with higher growth potential. Management expects to see improvements in the second half of fiscal 2019 when compared with the first half, on the back of its Project Terra savings plan." (4/10/2019) 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Following investor meetings w/ new CEO, Mark Schiller, we have increased conviction in our Buy rating. We view the new strategy as sound, and expect improved execution driven by a combination of new people, processes, incentives & products. Over the next FY, sales will be down a lot (aggressive cut in tail) before they start growing again but we expect consistent sequential EBITDA improvement. We view the risk/reward as attractive, especially for LT investors." (3/15/2019) 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "2018, HAIN hosted a luncheon for sell-side analysts with new CEO a few Board members. We have confidence in Mr. Schiller based on his vision for HAIN and his strong track record. We also came away from the lunch convinced that the Board is aligned with the CEO. We expect HAIN to focus on streamlining its business to reduce complexity and improve efficiency. the SEC announced a settlement with HAIN regarding its sales practices and did not impose a monetary penalty. We believe HAIN is reviewing all strategic alternatives, but likely must first sell Hain Pure Protein (HPP) and streamline the rest of its business."
