What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kellogg stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kellogg stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kellogg’s cost savings from its Project K and ZBB have been supporting renovation, innovation, brand support and margins. Kellogg remains on track to achieve its 2018 profit-margin goal of 18%. In order to improve its sales performance, the company is investing in brand building such as digital media, consumer promotions and traditional advertising.  Kellogg is also channeling funds toward product and packaging innovation as well as reformulation of many existing products to keep up with the rapidly changing views of consumers regarding health and wellness. Although cost savings are providing support for margin expansion, a weak top line is limiting Kellogg’s ability to leverage it. Meanwhile, its shares have outperformed industry in the past six months and current year earnings estimates have been trending upward over the last 60 days." (4/17/2018)
