What are Wall Street analysts saying about Greif stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Greif stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Greif updated adjusted earnings per share guidance for fiscal 2019 at $3.70-$4.00. The mid-point of the guidance reflects growth of 7.8% in 2018. The outlook has been updated to include the impact of the acquired Caraustar business. Greif will benefit from its focus on acquisition, operational execution, capital discipline, and a strong and diverse product portfolio. In 2019, The company's restructuring activities will focus on rationalizing operations and close underperforming assets in the Rigid Industrial Packaging & Services and Flexible Products & Services segments. However, high debt following the acquisition remains a concern. The volume in Western and Central Europe also remained muted due to trade uncertainty, which is likely to continue in fiscal 2019." (8/19/2019)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We think risks are high. We are increasing our FY19 adj. EPS estimate from $3.60 to $3.65 (guidance is now $3.60-$4.00) to reflect GEF’s guidance change on account of Caraustar, and increasing our FY20 estimate from $3.40 to $3.75 to reflect the Caraustar accretion. Our estimates for GEF’s legacy business are going down in both to reflect the Rigid business’s continued struggles. All else equal, we’d assume ~$62 million of adj. EBITDA growth in FY20 from 3.5 more months of Caraustar, but we’re instead assuming $25 million of adj. EBITDA growth given our expectation that the legacy Rigid and containerboard businesses will get worse. On our FY20 adj. EBITDA estimate (which includes a full year of Caraustar), GEF is trading at ~7.2x, roughly in line with the 5-year average of 7.1x." (2/28/2019)
