What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kraft Heinz stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kraft Heinz stock: 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Significant 2H EBITDA guide-down raises some concerns, but we consider most of the NT headwinds to be transitory in nature (e.g., rising freight costs & trade uncertainties). However, the core pillars of our positive thesis (sales growth acceleration & best-in-class M&A optionality) remain intact – we are lowering our PT to $75 but maintain our Buy rating." (8/7/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Kraft Heinz has lagged the industry year to date owing to softness in its top line. The company is seeing top-line weakness over the past several quarters. Evidently, in the first quarter, the top line was adversely impacted by soft consumer demand in North America and Rest of World. Kraft Heinz has been struggling due to the shift in consumer preference toward natural and organic ingredients over packaged and processed food. Estimates have also trended downward over the past 60 days. However, the company is progressing well with its cost-savings plan as well as efforts to enhance productivity like zero-based budgeting; modernization and biding capability within the manufacturing footprint."
