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 lowered its 2017 adjusted earnings per share guidance due to lower unit volume projections as well as expected hurricane-related impact in the fourth quarter. Further, its performance is expected to be impacted by the escalating raw material prices due to hurricanes. The company remains concerned on tough economic environment in Brazil and declining U.S. packaged food market. Restructuring expenses will also drag Bemis’ profit in the near term. Its estimates have been going down over the past two months. The company underperformed its industry over the last year." (12/26/2017)
- 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are slightly increasing our 2017 adjusted EPS estimate from $2.32 to $2.36 (at the lower end of guidance of $2.35-$2.40) and our 2018 EPS estimate from $2.32 to $2.38 on modestly higher EBITDA estimates. We are assuming adjusted EBITDA of $550 million in both 2018 and 2019. BMS’s EBITDA will be down ~8% in 2017 and is down over the past five years; we have difficulty believing that 2018 will be a major snap back as consensus appears to. Consensus expects ~$35 million of EBITDA growth next year, presumably because they think the restructuring savings will far outweigh any continued volume, price, and/or input cost pressure. We think otherwise." (10/24/2017)

Bemis (NYSE:BMS) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
