What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kraft Heinz stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kraft Heinz stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kraft Heinz, whose shares have declined in the past three months, has been battling cost-related hurdles that also lingered in fourth-quarter 2018. During the quarter, earnings declined on lower adjusted EBITDA, high interest costs, and greater depreciation and amortization expenses. Adjusted EBITDA was hurt by currency woes, lower-than-expected savings, and high manufacturing and logistic costs. Management expects adjusted EBITDA to decline in the first quarter, owing to cost inflation and commercial expenditure. This along with currency headwinds is expected to dent results in 2019. Also, management’s dividend cut was a let down for investors. Nonetheless, the company witnessed improved U.S. sales, courtesy of favorable volume/mix. Going ahead, Kraft Heinz has solid innovation initiatives planned in the foodservice space to fuel growth across all regions. It is also focused on cost saving and productivity efforts." (4/24/2019)
  • 2. 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)
