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, "Kraft Heinz posted second-quarter 2017 results wherein earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate but revenues missed the same. Net sales of $6.68 billion fell shy of the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $6.69 and declined 1.7% year over year due to soft consumer demand in North America and Canada. The company’s overall organic sales growth also declined 0.9% in the quarter on 0.4% lower pricing and 0.5% volume/mix decline. Organic sales declined across all its segments barring Rest of the World. Kraft Heinz has been struggling due to the shift in consumer preference toward natural and organic ingredients over packaged and processed food. Although Kraft Heinz’s shares have performed better than the industry year to date, estimates are trending downward for 2017 and 2018 over the last 30 days." (8/8/2017)
  • 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." (2/16/2017)
