What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kellogg stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kellogg stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kellogg’s shares have declined in the past three months. The company struggles with lower consumer demand in the U.S. Morning Foods segment. This, combined with challenges in the U.S. Snacks business as well as list-price adjustments dented revenues in the North American business by almost 0.8%. Though management is working to revive the businesses through investments in innovation and better in-store execution, the efforts are yet to bear fruit. Nevertheless, Kellogg’s revenues saw an increase in second-quarter 2018 driven by the takeover of RXBAR and consolidation of Multipro. Moreover, the company’s Pringles buyout has been lucrative. Further, the company expects to continue delivering solid results backed by yields from brand investments, gains from tax reforms and savings." (10/16/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We continue to expect that CEO Cahillane will steer Kellogg to accelerate growth and fund greater investment in the brands. We can agree with the recent short report that Kellogg has not reinvested in growth to support growth; doing so under Cahillane’s leadership will make Kellogg a much better company. The shorts think the glass is half empty – we see half full and growing." (5/3/2018)
