What are analysts saying about Graphic Packaging Holding Company stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Graphic Packaging Holding Company stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "GRAPHIC PACKAGING CORPORATION, headquartered in Marietta, Georgia, is a leading provider of paperboard packaging solutions for a wide variety of products to food, beverage and other consumer products companies. Graphic Packaging's customers include some of the most widely recognized companies in the world. " (10/12/2017)
- 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are raising our estimates for Graphic Packaging (GPK) on account of its recent acquisition of Norgraft Packaging, S.A. (which will contribute ~$4M-$5M of EBITDA in 2018 by our estimate) and the historic decline in U.S. OCC prices in October (we are inclined to attribute the recent strength in the stock to the weakness in OCC prices). Key Investment Points As a result of these two factors, our 4Q17 (and thus 2017) adj. EBITDA estimate is increasing by $13M and our 2018 estimate is increasing by the same $13M. GPK’s average fiber cost is down ~$45/ton since July, and given that GPK buys ~1 million tons of recycled fiber per year, the annualized benefit is $45 million." (10/10/2017)
- 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "While we believe GPK is one the best managed companies in our coverage, we are downgrading the stock to Hold and believe the stock is fairly valued and will be range bound. With demand remaining weak and rising input costs, we are cutting our 2017 estimates (4% below consensus) and expect muted EPS growth and anticipate pushback on the CRB price increase." (1/20/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Graphic Packaging Holding Company (NYSE:GPK) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
