" (2/3/2018)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We remain on the sidelines owing mainly to the stock’s relatively rich valuation (trades at a 15% premium to its 5Y average & 26% premium to smid-cap food peers) & recent ongoing margin degradation. To the latter point, while organic sales growth of 7% was impressive in 1Q, margins were lower than expected for the 4th consecutive quarter. We’d like to see a pathway to higher margins for us to get more constructive." (1/30/2018)
