What are analysts saying about Silgan Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Silgan Holdings stock:

  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2017 adj. EPS estimate from $3.15 to $3.30 (guidance is $3.20- $3.40, so we’re moving from the low end of previous guidance to the midpoint of new guidance). Our 2018 estimate is going from $3.15 to $3.45 (consensus is $3.60). SLGN shareholders have recently benefited from a debt-financed share repurchase and a debt-financed acquisition, the latter of which we did not consider inexpensive; as a result of these moves, the Company is more highly levered than its peers and will be in debt reduction mode for the foreseeable future. The combination of high leverage, lower organic growth than many of its packaging peers (witness what’s happened to its organic EBIT/EBITDA over the past five years), and recent substantial declines in its return on assets suggests to us that a discount is warranted." (4/26/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "For first-quarter 2017, Silgan expects earnings to be in the range of $0.48–$0.58, the midpoint of which implies 18% growth year over year. For 2017, Silgan guides earnings per share in the range of $3.15–$3.35. Silgan’s international operations generate approximately 23% of its consolidated net sales, and therefore unfavorable foreign currency translation is likely to hurt results. Further, high debt, interest levels remain concerns for the company. The company's estimates have gone down ahead of its first quarter release." (4/25/2017)
