What are analysts saying about Campbell Soup Company stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Campbell Soup has lagged the industry year to date, largely due to its top line, which hasn’t witnessed year-over-year growth for quite some time now. Moreover, it has missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for three straight quarters now. Much of this debacle could be attributed to a difficult packaged food industry landscape, where sales have been soft due to consumers changing food preferences, evolving shopping trends and a tough retail environment. These factors also hurt Campbell’s fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 results that fell short of estimates. Also, the company expects a tough operating scenario in fiscal 2018, which led to a cautious view. Nonetheless, Campbell’s solid cost savings helped it achieve EBIT and EPS growth in fiscal 2017. Also, the company is on track with its four key strategies. This is partly clear from its deal with Pacific Foods, which reflects Campbell’s focus on expanding in the organic food space." (9/4/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "With Model 3 rollout nearing, we assess how it will impact the company’s Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) and ambitions around machine learning. We believe Model 3 is critical to TSLA’s ADAS position for two reasons. First, TSLA’s ability to accelerate learning cycles related to characterizing driving behavior is facilitated by high volume rollout of Model 3, but the ability to process that data and create driving applications appears nascent and the challenge is extensive. Second, we believe leveraging consumer balance sheets for its technology development is an underappreciated aspect of the business." (5/24/2017)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Campbell reported 2Q17 EPS of $0.91 which was up $0.04 (5%) versus the prior year which outpaced our consensus matching estimate by $0.04. The outperformance was driven by a lower tax rate ($0.05) and underlying sales remain weak with declines in each segment. With a lower tax rate and heavier savings for the year ($85 million now), the company maintained EPS guidance for the year. These tailwinds offset weaker trends at C-Fresh and softer sales growth overall. We continue with our Hold rating." (2/21/2017)
  • 4. Royal Bank Of Canada 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)
