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 provided earnings per share outlook of $2.75-$2.90 for 2018. The company will witness material price inflation of 2-3% globally in 2018. Further, increase in SG&A expenses, rising interest expense on revolving credit facility and restructuring charges will mar results. Challenging economic environment in Brazil also remains a headwind. Moreover, Bemis has underperformed the industry over the past year." (7/2/2018)
  • 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." (4/26/2018)
