What are analysts saying about Kraft Heinz Co stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kraft Heinz enjoys long-standing consumer recognition. Strong brand portfolio, cost savings initiatives, innovation and marketing efforts boost the growth prospects of the company. Though the company’s net sales have been relatively soft, cost savings have led to better profits. However, shares have underperformed the Zacks categorized Food-Miscellaneous/Diversified industry so far this year. 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. Again, unfavorable currency translation is a major headwind for Kraft Heinz that is likely to hurt results in 2017." (7/20/2017)
  • 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."
