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 Brands completed the acquisition of Pinnacle Foods, which is expected to solidify its position in the frozen foods space. Achieving growth via acquisitions is not new for the company. Its sales growth was fueled by Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP and Sandwich Bros. buyouts in first-quarter fiscal 2019. During the quarter, sales and earnings grew year on year with Refrigerated & Frozen and Grocery & Snacks units being exceptionally strong. Further, the company is making efforts to enhance ROI, which, however, weighed on its gross margin. Gross margin was also hurt by input cost inflation that is expected to persist. Also, Foodservice sales remained soft for the company that has lagged the industry in the past six months. In fact, management expects sales in the second quarter to remain challenged due to hurricane-related impacts. Nonetheless, this seems to be a short-term hurdle as Conagra is confident about its fiscal 2019 show." (11/12/2018) 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We have a favorable view of the PF acquisition & believe that LT accretion from the deal will likely exceed mgmt’s guidance. Although 1Q results and 2Q guidance points to a deceleration in sales and GP growth, we view this as transitory. Moreover, reaffirmed FY19 guidance implies improving organic growth trends relative to 2H19 which is supportive of our BSM thesis. We are reiterating our Buy rating & $44 PT."
