What are Wall Street analysts saying about MCCORMICK & Co/SH SH NV stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about MCCORMICK & Co/SH SH NV stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "McCormick has outdone the industry in a year, backed by its focus on buyouts, innovations and robust cost-saving efforts. These factors helped the company retain its stellar record in second-quarter fiscal 2018, wherein top and bottom lines rose year over year and topped estimates. While earnings were fueled by solid sales, savings from CCI program and portfolio shift to more value-added products, sales gained from strength at both the segments. Further, sales were aided by buyouts, pricing, and improved volumes and mix. Markedly, the acquired Frank’s and French’s brands drove McCormick’s sales by 13%. However, stiff competition in the food space may hurt profits. Also, the company continues to incur high brand marketing and freight costs, which remain threats to margins. Nonetheless, these are likely to be cushioned by McCormick’s CCI program, which along with the other growth drivers led management to retain its solid view." (7/2/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "2Q operating results were better than expected and quality was good. Despite the beat guidance was maintained, which we view as appropriately conservative given the slower start to the summer grilling season and increased volatility in 3Q. Organic growth was weaker than expected in 2Q but acquired business sales and margins were better than expected (seasonality) and drove the beat." (6/28/2018)
