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, "Escalated input costs remain a threat to Conagra that has lagged the industry this year. Evidently, Conagra’s second-quarter fiscal 2019 adjusted gross margin continued being hit by higher costs of transportation, warehousing, packaging and certain ingredients. The company expects input cost inflation to persist in fiscal 2019. Also, Conagra’s Foodservice unit sales continued to be soft, and International sales also fell year over year. Nonetheless, continued strength in Refrigerated & Frozen, and Grocery & Snacks units were breathers in the second quarter, wherein top and bottom lines rose and topped estimates. Earnings were backed by higher operating income and sales were aided by buyouts. Talking of buyouts, Conagra recently closed Pinnacle Foods’ takeover, which now forms a separate unit of the company. Though Conagra expects hurdles in Pinnacle Foods’ business to linger in the near term, it is on track to fix them.<" (12/31/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Large-cap food stocks, incl. CAG, have underperformed recently on fears that weak industry sales growth & margin compression will lead to negative earnings revisions. However, we maintain that most of the issues impacting margins are transitory & that sales growth trends will improve as per our BSM thesis. We believe CAG’s 2Q base business sales growth & guidance will likely come in better than expected, potentially boosting NT sentiment on the stock. 2Q earnings preview – what to expect. CAG is scheduled to report 2Q19 results on 12/20 before the market open. We now expect 2Q EPS of $0.55 compared to $0.61 before. The $0.06 reduction in our estimate is entirely a function of the dilution from the PF deal, which closed 1 month earlier than our expectations. Management had guided to EPS of $0.57-$0.60 excluding the deal." (12/19/2018)
