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, "Silgan Holdings expects adjusted earnings per share between $2.10 and $2.20 in 2019 compared with $2.08 in 2018. The Closures segment will gain from the Dispensing Systems acquisition, manufacturing efficiencies and higher unit volumes. The plastic container business will benefit from manufacturing efficiencies and higher volumes. However, unit volumes in the metal container business are projected to decline in 2019 owing to customer pre-buy activity at the end of 2018. Inflated material and freight costs will dent margins in 2019. Nevertheless, acquisitions and investment in capacity will drive growth. Incessant focus on cost control will help sustain margins. The company’s estimates for the current fiscal have undergone positive revisions lately. Further, the company has a positive record of earnings surprises in the last few quarters." (10/15/2019)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2019 adjusted EPS estimate from $2.12 to $2.18 (guidance remains $2.10-$2.20) and our 2020 EPS estimate from $2.09 to $2.23 (below consensus of $2.33). Our 2019 estimate is going up to reflect the 1Q19 beat, while our 2020 estimate is increasing because of our inclusion of large share repurchase and our assumption of a modestly lower tax rate than before; our 2020 adjusted EBIT estimate isn’t changing (we are assuming a 2% EBIT decline). We think the most likely catalyst for the shares would be a large, debt-financed acquisition, but we have no idea if or when one will take place; in the meantime, we’re assuming a large share repurchase in 1Q20."
