What are Wall Street analysts saying about Newell Brands stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Newell Brands stock:
- 1. Wells Fargo analysts commented, "We recommend investors hold the stock but refrain from adding new money at this time since we see limited positive catalysts given: (1) Ongoing uncertainty surrounding who is going to run the company? Polk or Starboard/Jarden with likely disruptions regardless of the outcome; (2) Limited upside potential from Q4 results & CAGNY presentation given Q4 pre-announcement and mgmt’s diminished credibility; (3) Difficult fundamentals (tough topline comps for Elmer’s in 1H18 based on our analysis, continued retailer destocking pressures, Toys ‘R Us bankruptcy, slow category growth, etc); and (4) Limited return of capital to shareholders in the n.t. given high leverage. Bottom line – Despite what appears to be a relatively cheap valuation for NWL, we are incrementally more negative/cautious on the stock given likely disruptions, continued uncertainty and pressures on fundamentals. As such, we expect the stock could be range bound in the n.t." (2/15/2018)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "With the recent acceleration of the transformation plan, Newell Brands anticipates to be better positioned in the dynamic retail landscape with its leading brands, excellent marketing, innovation and solid e-commerce capabilities. However, the company has lagged the industry in the last three months due to soft third-quarter 2017 performance. Further, the company’s recently reported soft core sales and margins for 2017 indicate that there are more troubles ahead for the stock. Sales were hurt by continuation of retailer inventory rebalancing in the United States, while margins suffered due to the negative mix of lower Writing sales and lower fixed cost absorption due to shorter cycle runs on self-manufactured products. Based on the preliminary results, the company lowered projections for 2017 and provided initial view for 2018. Estimates have been going down ahead of the fourth quarter earnings release." (1/29/2018)
- 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "NWL negatively pre-announced 4Q, incl. weak ~-2% org sales declines (vs. +0.5 to +2.5% guide) and ~$0.68 in EPS (~10% below implied guidance mid-pt). NWL also guided to $2.65-$2.85 in FY18 EPS (vs. Street $2.94), incl. positive org sales growth. Along w/the poor results, NWL announced (more) strategic changes, incl. the review of ~$4B (~25%) of its portfolio. With visibility still low, NWL remains a value trap at ~9x P/E / ~16x EV/ULFCF, close to recent avgs. NWL negatively pre-announces 4Q results: NWL negatively pre-announced its 2017 results, including +0.8% FY17 core sales growth (vs. 1.5-2% guidance) and $2.72-2.76 in EPS (vs. $2.80-2.85 guidance). Implied 4Q of ~-2% org sales growth (vs. ~+0.5-2.5% guidance and JEF +1.4%) and $0.66-0.70 in EPS ($0.68 would be >10% below mid-pt of implied $0.74- $0.79 guidance), vs. Street/JEF $0.75. On a positive note, the company delivered ~$930M of FY17 OCF, vs. previous guidance of $700-800M. Though investors were likely braced somewhat for the poor results, 4Q failed to clear the already low bar. Initial FY18 outlook well below the Street: NWL also gave its initial FY18 outlook, incl. market share growth in its core categories and geographies, for core sales growth despite continued retailer inventory reductions. FY18 EPS is expected to be $2.65-2.85, including $135M (~$0.20 headwind) of increased sales/mgmt bonuses and a tax rate of 20-21% vs. 26% prior (~$0.20 tailwind). Additionally, OCF is expected to be $1.15-1.45B, vs. prior guidance (which had not been updated with 3Q) of >$1.5B. Guidance assumes continued ownership of all assets." (1/25/2018)

Newell Brands (NYSE:NWL) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
