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 has lagged the industry in the past three months. This is mainly attributable to continued softness in the Canada region, stemming from product discontinuations and higher promotional expenses. Moreover, escalated overhead and input cost has been a deterrent to the company’s performance. In fact, such costs more than offset growth in organic sales while also impacting overall profitability in the third quarter. However, Kraft Heinz has been benefitting from Improved volume/mix in almost all segments and consumption growth in the United States. Further, the company has solid innovation initiatives planned in the foodservice space to fuel growth across all regions. It is also making innovation efforts in its growing e-commerce channel. We also commend on the company’s well-chalked saving and productivity efforts. However, estimates have declined lately ahead of fourth-quarter earnings announcement." (2/13/2019)
  • 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)
