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, "Over the last three months, Conagra’s shares outperformed the industry. Stronger innovation, as well as new merchandising, distribution and consumer trail-related investments, will likely boost Conagra’s revenues in the future. On the other hand, meaningful acquisitions and divestments, lower corporate tax rates and sturdier top-line performance are expected to drive profitability in the quarters ahead. The company has also raised earnings guidance for fiscal 2018 from $1.84-$1.89 per share to $2.03-$2.05 per share range. Also, Conagra remains on track to increase shareholders’ remuneration over time. Over the last 60 days, Zacks Consensus Estimate for the stock has been revised upwards for fiscals 2018 and 2019." (5/24/2018)
- 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."
