What are Wall Street analysts saying about General Mills stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Mills stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Mills, which has outpaced the industry in a year, is steadily gaining from buyouts. Evidently, its Blue Buffalo acquisition fueled the Pet segment in second-quarter fiscal 2020, wherein earnings grew year over year and marked its seventh straight beat. Lower tax rate and interest expenses along with higher adjusted operating profit were some of the major drivers. Clearly, the company’s Holistic Margin Management program and efforts to enhance efficiency are yielding results. However, input cost inflation is a threat to margins. Also, sales in the quarter were somewhat hurt by continued weakness in the U.S. Snacks category and headwinds in Europe & Australia. Nonetheless, the company is on track with its Consumer First strategy and key global growth plans to improve sales." (2/24/2020)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "3Q sales, GP, EBIT and EPS beat significantly, driven entirely by better base business performance. In the quarter, price/mix and organic sales growth accelerated, gross margins expanded, and SG&A was leveraged, dispelling the bear thesis on most fronts. Negatives were Pet margins did not show sequential improvement, organic sales growth is expected to be at low end of guidance range & 4Q EBIT/EPS guidance is set below JEF/Street." (3/20/2019)
