What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bemis stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bemis stock:
  • 1. 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." (4/26/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bemis projects earnings per share in fiscal 2018 will be in the range of $2.75-$2.90 which includes an expected 31 cents benefit related to the U.S. tax reform. The mid-point of the range reflects an 18% year-over-year rise in earnings. The guidance reflects the benefit from the U.S. tax reform and the company’s initiatives to improve cost structure through the Agility plan. The plan includes optimizing manufacturing capacity, consolidating office space, and reducing SG&A cost structure and other costs. Further, Bemis's focus on capital expenditures will drive growth. Moreover, the company outperformed the industry over the past three months driven by these actions. However, Bemis’ performance might be impacted by the escalating raw material prices in the near term. The company is also facing challenges in its Latin American operations." (4/9/2018)
