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 has lagged the industry in the past three months. Consistent rise in input, transportation and manufacturing costs along with SG&A expenses are hurdles for the company.  Notably, high input and supply chain costs exerted pressure on gross margin during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. Such rises are likely to persist in fiscal 2020. Moreover, poor potato harvest conditions in Europe are also a worry. Nevertheless, the company is steadily gaining from solid pricing initiatives and volume growth in the Global and Foodservice units. These factors drove the top line during fourth-quarter fiscal 2019. Also, the bottom line grew year over year and topped estimates. Moreover, management’s efforts to boost capacity and supply chain efficiencies as well as continued gains from limited time offerings are encouraging. " (7/26/2019)
  • 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)
