What are analysts saying about Newell Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Newell Brands stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Newell Brands has underperformed the industry in the past month, mainly as it trimmed earnings outlook for 2017 due to the after-effects of Hurricane Harvey. This led to a downtrend in estimates. Notably, the effects of Harvey significantly disrupted huge parts of the United States’ resin manufacturing supply chain, resulting in lower resin supplies and significantly higher operating costs. This has weighed upon the company’s third quarter performance. Moreover, the company expects the resin supply issues and inflation to continue through the rest of 2017 and in 2018. Nonetheless, Newell Brands is working with its global suppliers to discover other sources of resin, though this action exceeds the pre-determined costs targets, substantially. The company is also likely to continue investing in strategic capacities and brands to aid market share growth, albeit witnessing temporary margin contractions in comparison with 2017 plan." (9/19/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "NWL’s 2Q results were good (not great), but co. is broadly delivering against its plan with growth across geos (incl. 2% in US), enhanced scale in e-com, a war chest of cost synergies, and results poised to inflect in 2H (w/bigger innovation still to come in ’18). CEO Polk has charted a clear path fwd (w/strong track record of delivery) and NWL’s depressed multiple (12x ’19 P/E vs. 19x staples) creates an asymmetrical risk-reward. Remains a top pick – $65 PT. Mixed 2Q qtr impacted by tough retail env’t: The market was looking for 3% core sales growth in 2Q, so NWL’s +2.5% was a bit light, though would have been > 3% ex- retailer destocking in fishing/fresh preserving and a customer bankruptcy. Encouragingly, NWL’s growth was broad-based across its geos, the co. is gaining share (~60 bps YoY in the US), and results are poised to inflect in 2H (+3.5% vs. +2.5% in 2H) even ahead of any yield on the big investments on consumer insights (mid-2018)."
