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. 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." (10/3/2018) 2. 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."
