What are Wall Street analysts saying about Silgan stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Silgan stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "For 2018, Silgan Holdings slashed adjusted earnings per share guidance to $2.03-$2.08 which includes the unfavorable impact from a planned reduction in finished goods inventory in the metal-food container business. The mid-point of the range depicts year-over-year growth of 26%. Its closures business is anticipated to benefit from the Dispensing Systems acquisition. Further, increase in capital expenditures and lower tax rates are expected to aid growth. However, the company’s results will be impacted by lower volumes in food cans business and inflated freight and material costs. Moreover, the stock has underperformed the industry over the past year. Its estimates have been stable lately." (1/3/2019) 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2018 adjusted EPS estimate by the amount of the estimated operational beat, going from $2.06 to $2.11 (guidance remains $2.03-$2.13). We are going up by the same $0.05 for 2019, from $2.10 to $2.15 (consensus is $2.28). Our free cash flow estimates remain the same: $300 million in 2018 (in line with guidance) and $282 million in 2019. SLGN’s Plastic Containers business appears to be on more solid footing than in years past, though the business has had many fits and starts over the years."
