What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ball stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ball stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ball Corp’s first-quarter 2020 adjusted earnings per share improved from the prior-year quarter while revenues were flat. While the bottom line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate, the top line missed the same. Overall global beverage can demand continues to grow as customers are preferring cans over glass and plastic. The company continues to execute its strategies of achieving better value for standard products and higher growth for specialty products. The Aerospace segment is likely to benefit from its strong backlog levels and business wins. Ball Corp’s balance sheet remains healthy and provides its flexibility to invest in capacity while returning value to shareholders. Focus on new products, completing growth capital projects and cost cutting will also drive results. However, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic remains a headwind." (5/27/2020)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We consider BLL a solid company with healthy future growth prospects; we just don’t understand the multiple at which it trades." (8/2/2019)
