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 is progressing well with its transformation plan, evident from its robust fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results as well as its deal to buy Pinnacle Foods. Conagra’s earnings and sales grew year over year and topped estimates in the quarter. While earnings gained from lower costs and reduced taxes, sales were backed by buyouts and organic sales growth. Clearly, the company’s efforts to reshape business is working well, also evident from its latest buyout. Incidentally, Pinnacle Foods’ addition to Conagra will create a robust portfolio of leading, iconic brands, helping the combined entity become the second-largest player in the booming frozen foods space. The deal is also expected to boost earnings in fiscal 2020. However, Conagra’s shares have been declining, somewhat accountable to input cost inflation that is expected to persist in fiscal 2019, which is a threat to margins. Also, soft Foodservice sales is a worry." (6/29/2018)
  • 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."
