What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lamb Weston stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lamb Weston stock:
  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "LW’s stock is down on the news that Mexico has imposed a 20% tariff on US frozen potato exports. Given our view that Mexico represents 1-2% of LW’s sales, the tariff is likely temporary & a good portion of the volumes will be sourced from other NA exporters (Canada), we believe the impact will be relatively immaterial on LW & the industry. Specifically, we estimate the tariff will impact LW’s EPS by less than 1% & industry utilization rates between 20-60 bps." (6/6/2018)
