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 solid innovation initiatives planned in the foodservice space to fuel growth across all regions, while it is also making innovation efforts in its growing e-commerce channel. Talking of regions, the company witnessed sales improvements in the EMEA and ROW regions during the second quarter of 2018, buoyed by gains in condiments and sauces. The company expects these regions to sustain their organic sales momentum. We also commend Kraft Heinz’s solid cost saving and productivity efforts, which along with the aforementioned drivers should provide some cushion to the company that has lagged the industry in the past six months. The company’s U.S. sales have long been declining year over year, with lower cheese shipments being a concern in many quarters. Also, escalated input costs, mainly due to high freight and resin expenses dented the company’s EBITDA in the second quarter and may pose threats in the near term." (10/9/2018)
  • 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)
