  • 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. We note that sales in this region have been falling year over year for three straight quarters now. 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. Nevertheless, Kraft Heinz has been gaining 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." (1/8/2019)

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)
