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 outperformed the industry in the past three months, largely driven by its robust-savings initiatives and sales-driving efforts. These factors fueled first-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein earnings improved year on year and surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Also, the top line remained sturdy, gaining from a strong base business as well as new product developments. New launches under the Frank's and French's banners have been yielding results. Notably, the company is on track with new product developments across different categories for fiscal 2019. Also, it is progressing well with augmenting digital marketing efforts. On the flip side, we note that adverse currency fluctuations were a drag on the top and the bottom line during the first quarter. Management expects such headwinds to persist in fiscal 2019." (5/30/2019)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Results are not directly comparable to our estimates given the adoption of new accounting standards, however, organic sales growth was better than expected, gross margins were flat y/y and EBIT was generally in line. Expectations were high and although 1Q was solid, quality was not high enough, in our view." (3/26/2019)
