What are analysts saying about The Kraft Heinz Company stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The Kraft Heinz Company stock:

  • RBC Capital Markets analysts commented, "Kraft Heinz's 4Q16 and 2017 may be yet another example of zigging when peers are zagging. The company has transitioned to a period of more rapid growth investment while many other food companies are implementing overhead, selling and promotion spending cuts. With a 1/2pp help from shipment timing, organic sales growth was almost 2% in 4Q - the highest since the merger and significantly above US peers. If sustained, these results seem to imply that Kraft Heinz is an advantaged acquirer on both a long- and short-term basis. While positive EPS revisions are slowing, we are estimating high-teens EPS growth in 2017 and lowdouble digit growth in 2018. We maintain our $100 price target and reiterate our Outperform rating." (2/16/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kraft Heinz shares have outperformed the Zacks categorized Food-Miscellaneous/Diversified industry, in the last one year. The company enjoys long-standing consumer recognition. Strong brand portfolio, cost savings initiatives, innovation and marketing efforts increases growth prospects for the company. However, the company is seeing top-line weakness over the past several quarters. Soft spending by U.S. shoppers and shift in consumer preference toward natural and organic ingredients over packaged and processed food are hurting the company’s categories. Management warned that consumer trends are likely to remain challenged in both North America and Europe in the remainder of 2016." (1/20/2017)
