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 expects that its adjusted earnings per share will be $2.03-$2.13, reflecting 26% year-over-year growth at the mid-point. It expects improvement in sales and operating income across all its three segments. For second-quarter 2018, Silgan Holdings guides adjusted earnings per share of 50-54 cents, reflecting 49% increase at the mid-point. This increase is primarily a result of the inclusion of the Dispensing Systems operation. The company expects solid top-line growth for the business in the near future. Improvement in capital expenditures and lower effective tax rate will also drive growth. However, Silgan Holdings’ results will be impacted by ongoing plan of inventories reduction and increase in debt. Recent tariff on steel and aluminum prices will also hurt its margin performance. Moreover, the stock has underperformed the industry to which it belongs to, over the past year." (6/21/2018)
  • 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." (4/25/2018)
