Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Flowers Foods stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Flowers Foods have outpaced the industry in the past six months. The company is benefiting from its focus on buyouts and market share gains. Notably, strength in DKB, Nature's Own and Wonder brands drove Flowers Foods’ market share in the second quarter of 2019, wherein the top line beat the consensus mark. Results also gained from the buyout of Canyon Bakehouse and solid price mix that helped counter inflationary pressures. Well, Flowers Foods has long been battling high costs and expects commodity, transport and labor cost inflation to persist in 2019. Further, management cut its earnings view for the year. Management also remains skeptical about its base business volumes, which have been weak for a while. Nonetheless, the company is set to fight these odds through savings and productivity plans like Project Centennial." (9/19/2019)
