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’ results will gain from focus on Agility plan, improving operating performance and business expansion. While the U.S. Packaging and Rest of World Packaging Segments will witness top and bottom-line growth in 2019, the Latin America business revenues and profits will remain flat. The company’s shares have outperformed the industry over the past year. The pending merger of Amcor and Bemis will create a global leader in consumer packaging, with a broader product portfolio and enhanced operating capabilities. However, there remain risks related to the merger as it is subject to conditions and termination fees if it falls through. Further, Bemis’ performance will be hurt by elevated expenses and headwinds from currency and freight costs." (4/10/2019)
  • 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." (4/26/2018)
