What are analysts saying about Mead Johnson Nutrition CO stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Mead Johnson Nutrition CO stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Mead Johnson in last reported second-quarter 2016 witnessed a tough competitive scenario in the pediatric nutrition market which continues to be a major headwind. In emerging markets, macroeconomic turmoil in Brazil, Venezuela and Argentina spoiled whatever growth the company had achieved in Mexico and Columbia. Currency translation also remained a major challenge for the company across all regions. However Mead Johnson improved its gross margin because of lower dairy input costs. The company’s Fuel for Growth project also played a major role in improving its profitability. " (10/4/2016)
Susquehanna Bancshares Inc analysts commented, "Last week Windeln, a leading e-commerce player in German infant milk formula shipped to China (consumers buy IMF from its European website and have the product shipped to China) reported a drop in China-bound sales (bulk being IMF) of 11% in 2Q16 (after 11% growth in 1Q16, and 64% growth in 2015). New rules have generated uncertainty with consumers, with these shying away from these types of "direct imports". We realize this in the long term could be positive for the likes of Neutral-rated MJN (as consumers buy more offline, but still seek premium imported brands), but in the near term this reflects how regulatory changes are disrupting trade in IMF in China, and in some cases forcing traders and smaller companies to clear inventories (although not the case of moms buying IMF online from Europe). Net, we remain sidelined on MJN as we think its overall business is also being affected by the uncertainty triggered by these regulatory changes. Briefbackgr ound. Windeln.de (diapers.com translated into English) is an e-commerce company listed in Germany (Munich HQ), delving mainly in baby and maternity related products, both of the "software" (diapers, milk formula) and "hardware" kind (strollers, baby chairs). The company is growing both organically and through acquisitions (to other parts of Europe)." (8/29/2016)
Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "We think the deepest fears of investors about the current pricing/promotional and competitive environment in China are overblown, as on a holistic basis, our survey data shows more signs of stabilization," Driscoll wrote in a note to clients.Related Link: Mead Johnson Details New Production Expansion In ChinaThe analyst raised his first quarter EPS view to $0.85 (in-line with consensus) from $0.83, while his above consensus 2016 EPS estimate of $3.55 remains unchanged. Wall Street analysts, on average, expect earnings of $0.85 for the first quarter and $3.51 a share for the full year 2016.Citi said its survey showed that sequential changes in formula pricing in China in the first quarter were generally "modest," while brick & mortar retailers were incrementally sequentially less negative on Mead's sales trends. In addition, the survey indicated that the company's imported formula resulted in volume increases.Driscoll noted that the U.S. sales should boost first quarter profit as its non-WIC business shows solid volume growth at 3 percent and category pricing is "holding up" despite massive dairy deflation in the country. In the second half, the analyst expects Mead's top-line returns to growth, driven by easy comps and benefits from the new China strategy.Driscoll reiterated his Buy rating saying, "Beyond the top-line improvement, we see the real possibility of further cost reduction actions, and a takeout scenario remains in play. As such, we see value creation optionality in Mead shares." (4/18/2016)
