" (5/8/2017)
- 2. Royal Bank Of Canada analysts commented, "CLX delivered a soft 3Q EPS beat, including org sales (+1.7% vs. Street +3.1%) and GM% (-110 bps vs. Street) misses, offset by $0.05 of help from below the line items. CLX implicitly lowered org sales guidance, though narrowed its EPS range. Given the stock’s underperformance (-3.6% vs. S&P 500 +0.7% since 4/25) in a very tough earnings season for CPG cos., we believe the poor results were likely well vetted and expect a muted stock reaction to the soft qtr. Low quality 3Q EPS beat: Reported 3Q revs of $1.48B were slightly below consensus as +1.7% org sales fell short of Street estimates of 3.1%. Gross margins of 44.0% came in 110 bps below Street est. (driven by commodities, negative mix, and higher trade spend), driving a ~2.5% gross profit miss. SG&A was relatively in-line (26.9% vs. Street 27.0%) as OI missed by 6%. Below the line items (primarily lower tax rate) were a $0.05 benefit vs. our model as EPS of $1.31 beat Street est. by $0.01 on lower quality. Lifestyle and Household segments drive weakness: Cleaning delivered strong +6.9% org sales growth vs. Street +3.1%, with segment pre-tax earnings of $132M +4% ahead of Street est. Household org sales of ~-2% came in below Street est. of flat, with segment pre- tax earnings of $106M -11% below Consensus. Lifestyle fell well short of expectations at -3.1% org sales declines vs. Street +2.5%, with segment pre-tax earnings of $51M -30% vs. Consensus." (5/3/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Cott Corporation (NYSE:COT) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
