What are analysts saying about Campbell Soup Company stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Campbell Soup Company stock:

  • RBC Capital Markets analysts commented, "We are increasing our estimates and price target ahead of fiscal 2Q17 earnings to reflect a bounce-back in Chunky soup sales (up 12%) after last year's merchandising execution issues. This has led to the sequential improvement in the company's overall US sales despite a meaningful pull-back in promotional activity, which suggests gross margin upside this quarter. Given improving trends, we would not be surprised to see a step up in EPS guidance on Friday." (2/15/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Campbell Soup has outperformed the broader industry in the last three months. The company is well on track with its strategic growth initiatives, as is evident from its focus on acquisitions and joint ventures, aimed at strengthening its brand portfolio. The company’s strategy of concentrating on supply chain efficiencies, along with cutting costs is likely to drive growth. Campbell Soup is indeed progressing well in this regard, generating better-than-expected results from its three-year cost savings program. Also, the company’s portfolio reorganization step is likely to improve overall execution and boost results. Estimates have been trending up ahead of the second quarter earnings release. However, the comapny has been witnessing soft Campbell Fresh performance lately, due to weak carrot sales and the lingering effect of the Bolthouse Farms product recall. Industry hurdles like food deflation and competition also pose threats." (2/14/2017)
