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 the past six months, is steadily gaining from buyouts, especially Blue Buffalo. The acquisition drove fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 performance, with the top and the bottom line improving year over year. Revenues gained from acquisitions and earnings were fueled by higher adjusted operating profit. Management also provided optimistic view for 2020. Further, the company is on track with savings efforts like Holistic Margin Management program and initiatives to enhance efficiency. It is on track with Consumer First strategy and key global growth strategies to consistently drive sales. On the flip side, input cost inflation is weighing on the company’s margins. This along with weakness in the U.S. Snacks unit and headwinds in Europe & Australia regions is a concern." (8/22/2019)
  • 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)
