What are Wall Street analysts saying about Crown stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Crown stock:
  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We believe CCK’s guidance implies a modest organic EBIT decline in 2018; the Company has had difficulty generating consistent organic EBIT growth in years past, as have most other U.S. packaging companies. CCK trades at a reasonable valuation on EBITDA and cash flow, in our view, in line with its historical EBITDA multiple." (10/18/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Crown Holdings' adjusted earnings per share guidance of $5.15-$5.30 for full-year 2018 includes the impact of persistent elevated freight costs in North America and foreign currency-translation effect. This currency-translation impact was mainly driven by the weakness in the Brazilian reais against the U.S. dollar. Also, higher interest expenses will continue to thwart margins. Political or economic instability in Middle East, South America and Asia may hurt its performance. Moreover, its shares have underperformed the industry over the past year. However, the company is poised to gain from disciplined pricing, cost control, capital allocation and geographic expansion. In addition, strong performance of its Transit Packaging business remains a major growth driver." (10/18/2018)
