What are Wall Street analysts saying about Conagra Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Conagra Brands stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Conagra’s gross margin remained pressurized in the third quarter due to increased cost of sales and input cost inflation – which stemmed from higher packaging and transportation expenses. Though SG&A expenses and A&P costs reduced year over year, gross margin contraction more than offset these factors and marred adjusted operating margin. Unfortunately, input cost inflation is likely to remain a hurdle. Nonetheless, innovations, as well as new merchandising, distribution and consumer trail-related investments, are likely to boost Conagra’s revenues in the future. This, along with meaningful acquisitions and divestments and lower corporate tax rates should help drive the company’s bottom line. These factors have helped Conagra’s shares to gain 9.1% in the past three months, though the trend might reverse on account of the cost hurdles. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has remained stable lately ahead of earnings." (6/21/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "CAG’s 3Q EBIT was slightly below consensus & 2018 EBIT guidance was unchanged. Results/guidance is much better than feared especially considering the significant guide down by GIS yesterday. Sales were generally in-line despite greater than expected retailer inventory reductions, which is encouraging. Gross margins were lower than expected driven by higher input costs and growth-related investments both of which we view as transitory. FY18 EPS guidance raised and implies 4Q sales and EBIT above consensus. EPS guidance was raised to a range of $2.03 to $2.05 from a range of $1.95 to $2.02. Sales and margin guidance is unchanged and previous guidance already included the benefit from tax reform. Interest expense is coming in well below initial guidance and points to strong cash flow generation. Relative to consensus, new guidance implies 4Q18 sales 4% above, EBIT 2% above and EPS 18% above."
