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 in 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. Additionally, the company struggles with lower consumer demand in the U.S. Morning Foods segment. This along with challenges in the U.S. Snacks business as well as list-price adjustments dented organic revenues in the North American business in the second quarter. Nevertheless, Kellogg’s net revenues improved in third-quarter 2018 driven by the takeover of RXBAR and consolidation of Multipro. Going ahead, the company expects to continue gaining from a strong brand portfolio and savings initiatives." (11/13/2018) 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) Has Kellogg been receiving favorable news coverage?
