What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lamb Weston stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lamb Weston stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lamb Weston’s shares have declined and underperformed the industry in the past three months. The company has been incurring high SG&A expenses for a while now and expects the same to remain high in fiscal 2019. Also, management expects transport, input and warehouse cost inflation to be a hurdle, which is likely to keep gross margin under pressure. Management also anticipates to face headwinds like a poor potato crop at its European joint venture, though it expects to offset these hurdles through solid pricing and cost-saving initiatives. These factors also aided the company in second-quarter fiscal 2019, wherein Both top and bottom lines grew year over year and topped estimates for the ninth straight time. While earnings gained from lower tax rate and higher operating income, sales were backed by strong volumes and price/mix. Markedly, the company expects the operating environment to be favorable in fiscal 2019." (3/19/2019)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We expect capacity utilization rates in North America to be tight in FY20 despite ~4% incremental capacity owing to strong domestic demand and a supply shortage internationally driven by the European crop issues. As such, we expect pricing to exceed cost inflation and for LW to continue to gain share resulting in further earnings upside. We maintain our Buy & $85 PT." (1/4/2019)
