What are analysts saying about The Kraft Heinz Company stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Kraft Heinz underperformed its industry in the last six months. Estimates are also trending downward for 2017 and 2018 over the last 60 days. Kraft Heinz, like many other U.S. food producers, has been struggling due to the shift in consumer preference toward natural and organic ingredients over packaged and processed food. This, along with soft spending by U.S. shoppers, are hurting the company’s categories. The company is witnessing top-line weakness for the last several quarters. Again, unfavorable currency translation is a major headwind for Kraft Heinz, which is likely to hurt results in 2017." (10/11/2017)
  • 2. Royal Bank Of Canada 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."
