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, whose shares have declined in the past three months, depicted an unimpressive profitability picture when it reported third-quarter 2018 results. Notably, adjusted operating profit declined in the said period, primarily due to higher promotional investments. In fact, management expects increased expenses to continue, as a result of which it trimmed adjusted earnings growth view for 2018. Nevertheless, Kellogg’s revenues saw an increase in third-quarter 2018 driven by the takeover of RXBAR and consolidation of Multipro. The quarter marks the company’s sixth consecutive top-line beat. Further, the company expects to continue delivering solid top-line results backed by strong brands. Additionally, Kellogg’s productivity saving initiatives, have been on track. In this respect, the company is particularly striving toward reducing overhead costs pertaining to Direct-Store Delivery in U.S. Snacks." (1/8/2019)
  • 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)
