What are analysts saying about Crown Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Crown Holdings stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Crown Holdings projects 2017 adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $3.90–$4.05. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the third quarter are projected in the range of $1.35–$1.45. To meet growing beverage can demand, the company intends to build new facilities and is poised to gain from the geographic expansion of its beverage can lines. Additionally, it is poised to gain from potential strategic acquisitions in geographic areas and product lines. In the past year, Crown Holdings has outperformed the industry. The company has a positive record of earnings surprises in the last few quarters." (9/21/2017)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2017 adj. EPS estimate from $3.95 to $4.02 (guidance is $3.90- $4.05) on account of fewer shares outstanding, lower interest expense, lower D&A expense, and better operations; we had already incorporated a $1.14 euro rate into our estimates two weeks ago. Of CCK’s $0.07-$0.08 guidance increase, $0.03-$0.04 was FX, ~$0.02 was lower interest expense, and the rest was better operations. CCK did not increase its FCF guidance on account of a one-time payment, which offset the boost to net income guidance. Consequently, we are maintaining our 2017 FCF estimate of $365 million, which is lower than CCK’s guidance of $425 million because we are deducting dividends to minority interests (which the Company does not). For perspective, dividends to minorities in 1H17 were $37 million. We are assuming flat FCF in 2018 because we expect capex to be the same as in 2017 ($450 million). Our 2018 adj." (7/20/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "While CCK is facing some headwinds, it's managing it well and we expect earnings to inflect in 2018. Separately, following a multi-year reinvestment cycle, FCF generation should accelerate next year and we remain comfortable with our Buy." (2/6/2017)
