What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bemis stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bemis stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bemis’ guidance for fiscal 2018 of $2.75-$2.85 includes an estimated 5 cents per share impact from unfavorable currency translation. Bemis’ customers have decided to change their format from boxes to flexible pouches, which will also likely impact earnings. Bemis will experience material price inflation of 2-3% globally as well as the impact of exceeding annual pay for performance targets in 2018. In Latin America the company will bear the brunt of a raw material headwind in 2018 due to the current economic environment, which has made passing the increased input costs to customers more challenging. The political instability and challenging economic environment in Brazil will also impact volumes in the region. Also, higher SG&A (selling, general and administrative) expenses remains a concern. " (10/8/2018) 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are slightly increasing our 2018 adj. EPS estimate from $2.70 to $2.76 (at the lower end of guidance of $2.75-$2.90) and our 2019 estimate from $2.75 to $2.81 (consensus is much higher at $3.09). We are assuming flat EBIT in 2019, which we consider appropriate given the aforementioned pricing and volume pressures that have put significant pressure on BMS’ EBIT in years past; we don’t think it is right to assume that the incremental cost savings from the Agility program will flow through to the Company’s bottom line because they rarely have."
