What are analysts saying about Crown Holdings stock?

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

  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are modestly increasing our 2017 adj. EPS estimate for Crown Holdings (CCK) on account of the recent strength in the euro. CCK assumed a euro rate of $1.14 for 2H17, and in 3Q17, the euro averaged $1.17. Consequently, CCK will have close to a $0.01 FX benefit relative to its guidance in 3Q17, and would have a comparable benefit in 4Q17 assuming the euro remains at $1.17-$1.18. Consequently, we are raising our 2017 estimate by $0.02 to $4.04 (guidance is $3.90-$4.05, and consensus is $4.03). Key Investment Points Aside from FX, we assume CCK experienced continued strength in SE Asia and Continental Europe, and we expect another solid earnings report partly as a result. Items to watch for include the Middle East (specifically Saudi Arabia, which was a source of weakness in 2Q17), continued weakness in the U.S." (10/3/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "To meet growing beverage can demand, Crown Holdings 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. Year-to-date, Crown Holdings has outperformed the industry. The company has a positive record of earnings surprises in the last few quarters. However, volumes will be impacted in the Middle East by the ongoing conflicts in the region and introduction of beverage taxes in Saudi Arabia. Further, weak global food and aerosol can volumes, mature North American food can and closure markets, pricing pressure in China remain concerns." (10/3/2017)
  • 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)
