What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hormel Foods stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hormel Foods stock:
- 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "The 2Q results and outlook for Refrigerated Foods validated our materially less pessimistic view on commodity pork processor margins. But this was offset by sales declines in Muscle Milk and contract manufacturing as well as higher freight costs, all of which are transitory headwinds but likely to persist for the next few quarters. Reasons to own HRL: 1) strong management; 2) potential turn in turkey cycle; 3) 4) solid base business growth. We are updating our estimates. Our 2018 EPS estimate is decreasing from $1.87 to $1.82, which compares to management guidance of $1.81 to $1.95 (m/p $1.88) and consensus of $1.86. Our revised estimates primarily reflect the 2Q miss and lower EBIT margin assumptions (12.3% vs. 12.8% previously), partially offset by a lower tax rate assumption (now at 17.6% vs. 19.0% previously)." (5/31/2018)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past month, Hormel Foods' shares have outperformed the industry. In second-quarter fiscal 2018, the company’s adjusted earnings and revenues improved 12.8% and 6.5%, respectively, on a year-over-year basis. The company is strengthening its product portfolio on the back of several innovation investments. Moreover, sturdier demand for on-trend brands and ongoing marketing moves will likely drive its revenues and profitability in the upcoming quarters. Hormel Foods also expects that successful integration of the latest acquisitions and reduced corporate taxes will continue to strengthen its competency, going forward." (5/30/2018)
