What are Wall Street analysts saying about Brown-Forman stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Brown-Forman stock: 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We think in some ways this is an increase in brand investment as the company does not plan to pass through the tariff in pricing immediately or in full." (8/29/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Brown-Forman has outperformed the industry in the past year driven by an impressive surprise trend. The company’s fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results marked its fourth straight earnings beat. The quarter also marked the seventh straight growth in underlying sales. The company has been gaining from solid growth in underlying sales, improved margins, continued momentum at its focus categories and strength in Jack Daniels. Further, management remains optimistic about its premium American whiskey and tequila brands. Moreover, the company expects to deliver solid earnings growth in fiscal 2019 backed by strength in its business and gains from the tax reform. However, price increase of Jack Daniel’s in the European Union due to the recently imposed 25% tariff increase on U.S. imports is likely to hurt the company’s sales and profits. Further, the company expects the intense competition in developed economies to hinder results." (8/17/2018) Who are some of Brown-Forman's key competitors?
