What are Wall Street analysts saying about MCCORMICK & CO /SH stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about MCCORMICK & CO /SH stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "McCormick has lagged the industry in the past three months. The company has long been battling increased brand marketing and freight expenses. These factors somewhat weighed on adjusted operating income in both segments during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The quarterly performance was also hit by trade inventory reductions, which led to adverse mix, and hurt sales and profits at the consumers segment across Americas. Moreover, currency played foul and is likely to remain a headwind in fiscal 2019. Nonetheless, McCormick’s margins are likely to receive significant cushion from its solid CCI savings program. Also, the company is set to continue gaining from its focus on innovation and product launches. McCormick also integrated its Frank’s and French’s brands in fiscal 2018, which are likely to keep boosting sales. All said, management expects sales and earnings to grow year over year in fiscal 2019." (1/28/2019) 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "MKC’s best-in-class 3Q18 results (organic sales growth +4% & GM expansion +285bps) are especially encouraging given the tough operative environment. Earnings upside was limited by the fact MKC has chosen to reinvest much of the margin upside in further brand building, which bodes well for future growth."
