What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pilgrim's Pride stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pilgrim's Pride stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pilgrim’s Pride’s shares have outpaced the industry in the past year. The company is gaining from solid Prepared Foods business. Volumes in the segment grew double digits in the United States in the third quarter of 2019 on investments in R&D and marketing of new products. The company continues to gain from strategic acquisitions and expansion in the fresh foods space, courtesy of solid consumer response. Earnings and sales grew year over year, backed by improved U.S. and Mexican market conditions. Moreover, cost of sales dropped and aided the gross margin. However, soft sales from Europe and escalated input costs in the region were headwinds, though Key Customer strategy is helping the company mitigate the cost challenges. Stiff competition and rising demand for plant-based protein alternatives are also concerns." (11/20/2019)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Although we had significantly lowered our 4Q18 estimates earlier in the week, EBIT missed our below-the-Street estimate by ~28% because of a challenging environment (oversupply) in the US and higher grain costs in Europe. US retail chicken demand has improved over the past month; however, we remain sceptical about its sustainability given the abundance of competing protein supplies. As such, we remain cautious on NT industry fundamentals. 4Q18 EBIT significantly missed our already below-consensus estimates. 4Q18 net sales came in at ~$18M (or 1%) below our estimates but were in line with consensus. Consolidated gross margin of 4.2% was 150bp below our estimate and 170bp below consensus, resulting in gross profit missing our estimate by ~27% and consensus by ~29%. This was partially offset by lower SG&A/sales, which came in 90bp below our estimate and 150bp below consensus." (2/17/2019)
