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’s shares have outdone the industry in the past year, thanks to its spectacular past record. In fact, the company’s second-quarter fiscal 2018 results marked its sixth and fifth consecutive earnings and sales beat, respectively. Well, the robust performance stems from the company’s dedicated focus on buyouts, product innovations, cost-containment measures and efficient marketing initiatives. Speaking of cost savings, the company’s Comprehensive Continuous Improvement program has been yielding well. Notably, savings from CCI aided expanding margins during the second quarter. On the flip side, we note that McCormick continues to incur high brand marketing and freight costs. These factors had a negative impact on margins in the second quarter. In fact, freight costs are expected to remain a headwind for gross margin in fiscal 2018. Apart from this, stiff competition in the food space remains a threat to the company." (9/18/2018)
  • 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)
