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 increased in the past three months. The company is gaining from a solid prepared foods business. Strong brands are boosting business in this category. It plans to continue making investments to strengthen the unit. Moreover, the company’s focus on key customers is a pathway for refining portfolio and creating competitive advantages over its peers. Apart from this, it resorts to frequent supply chain improvements to enhance efficiency and reduce costs. However, Pilgrim’s Pride’s bottom-line trend has been dismal for a while. In fact, the fourth quarter of 2018 marked the company’s fourth straight bottom-line miss. Lower revenues and dismal margins weighed upon the bottom line. Further, it witnessed lower revenues from U.S. operations during the quarter, thanks to a tough scenario in commodity chicken. Also, revenues from European operations declined, due to high feed costs." (4/16/2019)
  • 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)
