What are Wall Street analysts saying about Dr Pepper Snapple Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dr Pepper Snapple Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dr Pepper’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past month. We note that the company has been witnessing weak volumes of carbonated beverages, including the diet versions owing to CSD category headwinds. Further, cross-category competition and growing health and wellness consciousness among consumers are hurting CSD category growth. Also, the diet drinks are under pressure due to increasing consumer concern in relation to the use of artificial sweeteners. Moreover, new taxes on sugar-sweetened beverages and growing regulatory pressures are affecting CSD sales. These factors are likely to hurt CSD volumes and the company’s overall results. Nevertheless, the company’s robust long-term fundamentals, aggressive RCI cost savings and regular shareholder returns, remain encouraging. Solid execution, pricing gains, innovation, powerful marketing programs and productivity improvements are also aiding results." (6/26/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "DPS announced a surprise merger with Keurig Green Mountain, wherein shareholders will receive a $103.75 special dividend and a 13% stake in NewCo. Conf call left questions on strategic fit and ability to materially improve growth; however, importantly, the deal enhances KDP’s scale as a platform co. to further consolidate the global bevs industry. Using preliminary assumptions, we see fair value for DPS’s shares in the ~$120+ area (13-15x synergized EV/ EBITDA). DPS to merge with Keurig Green Mountain – adds scale to global beverage platform company: DPS announced a merger with Keurig Green Mountain (NC) to create a portfolio of cold and hot beverage brands, broaden scale and reach, and drive attractive growth opportunities. While the Keurig team seemingly brings greater capabilities in the on-line channel and the Keurig brands should leverage DPS’s strength in DSD, mgmt did not shed much light on how the combined portfolio will improve growth in either business; however, importantly, the deal enhances KDP’s scale as a platform co. to further consolidate the global beverages industry. Cost synergies of $600M by 2021 (~9% of DPS sales or ~5.5% of pro forma sales) will be a major source of value creation. Under the terms of the deal, DPS’s shareholders will receive $103.75 per share in a special cash dividend and retain 13% of the combined Keurig Dr Pepper (vs. 87% ownership for Keurig shareholders). The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2018, subject to DPS shareholder approval and customary closing conditions." (1/29/2018)
