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’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past six months. Earnings estimates for the current-quarter and year have also gone down over the last 30 days, reflecting analysts’ concern over the stock’s prospects. 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. Kraft Heinz’s sales growth continued to face challenges in the last reported quarter due to softness in the U.S. retail environment.  Organic sales in the United States declined 1.1% year over year in the preceding quarter due to lower volume. Soft consumer demand in North America and Canada along with a 4% year-over-year decline in gross profit affected the company’s earnings." (4/20/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "4Q adj. EBITDA was significantly below expectations driven mainly by what seems like (very sparse commentary provided) higher commodity costs & strategic investments (mostly in the US). Sales were generally in line and we note that price/mix was up 1% and improved sequentially. In what was seen as an unusual move last night, the company posted a narrated corporate strategy presentation that sparked speculation of a 4Q miss and a thawing M&A environment." (2/16/2018)
