What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hormel Foods stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hormel Foods stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hormel Foods’ shares have outpaced the industry in the past three months. The company is gaining on solid advertising, innovation and synergies from buyouts of Columbus, Fontanini and Ceratti. Further, continued strength in its Refrigerated Foods segment has been aiding Hormel Foods, which topped earnings and sales estimates in third-quarter fiscal 2019. During the quarter, Refrigerated Foods benefited from value-added growth, effective pricing and innovation. However, results were affected by a dismal show by the Grocery Products unit, which was hit by CytoSport’s divestiture and elevated avocado costs. Moreover, the pork market remained challenged, and exports were hurt by the African swine fever and tariffs. Further, Hormel Foods battled input cost inflation during the quarter, which is expected to persist." (8/27/2019)

The sales miss was driven primarily by a lesser extent Grocery Products. EBIT beat our estimate by $8M or 3% but was in line with consensus.
