What are Wall Street analysts saying about Flowers Foods stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Flowers Foods stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Flowers Foods has outpaced the industry in the past three months. The company is largely benefitting from its focus on buyouts and expanding market share. Notably, strength in DKB, Nature's Own and Wonder brands drove Flowers Foods’ market share in the fourth quarter of 2018, wherein both top and bottom lines beat estimates. Results also gained from Canyon’s recent buyout and solid price mix that helped counter soft volumes. Markedly, Flowers Foods’ volumes dropped 1.8%, and management is skeptical about the same in 2019. Also, the company has long been battling escalated input costs. In fact, the company expects commodity, transport and labor cost inflation to persist in 2019. Nonetheless, Flowers Foods is set to fight these headwinds through savings and productivity plans like Project Centennial. Markedly, sales are expected to grow 2-4% in 2019, while EPS is expected between 94 cents and $1.02." (4/10/2019)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We have lost confidence that the company can improve its financial performance meaningfully – this year is just a repeat of so many before – set expectations high and disappoint in the 2H. We see little evidence that the company is not in secular decline." (2/7/2019)
