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 surpassed the industry in the past six months. The company has been gaining from its robust LTO innovations, which drove nearly half the volume growth of Lamb Weston’s significant Global segment in the third-quarter fiscal 2018. During the quarter, both top and bottom lines grew year over year and topped estimates for the sixth straight time. While earnings gained from lower tax rate, higher operating income and equity method investment earnings, sales were backed by strong volumes and pricing. Management expects price/mix to grow in fiscal 2018, which led to a raised sales view. However, transportation, warehousing and commodity costs are expected to increase. Also, raw potato prices are expected to rise in low to mid single-digit range. These factors, along with an anticipated rise in SG&A costs may hurt margins. Near-term issues in the foodservice unit are also a worry." (7/6/2018)
  • 2. 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)
