What are Wall Street 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 has underperformed the industry in the past six months owing to weak gross and operating margins for the last few quarters. Also, the company has been witnessing lower core sales for a while now. In the last reported quarter, core sales declined in all of the company’s segments, except the Work division. Core sales are projected to be flat to down low-single digit rate in 2018. Lower core sales have been adversely impacting the company’s top line that missed estimates and declined year over year in first-quarter 2018. Adverse pricing and commodity cost inflation have also been hurting the results. Nevertheless, management reiterated its guidance for 2018. In addition, its Transformation Plan, which is expected to create value remains encouraging. This plan also aims at transforming the company into a simpler, stronger and faster one to leverage its abilities with respect to innovation, design and e-commerce." (7/10/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We remind investors that due to NWL’s high leverage after the Jarden transaction, the company has not been aggressive with share repurchases, with the only recent repurchases being $152MM in 4Q17. With total debt/EBITDA at 4.7x at the end of 1Q18, we expect NWL’s first priority is deleveraging, with a goal to reduce leverage to a range of 3­3.5x by late 2018/early 2019. That said, we believe today’s announcement sends a clear signal that NWL remains on track with its divestitures and is a reminder that share repurchases will become a bigger part of the narrative moving forward. We expect shares to respond favorably today." (6/11/2018)
  • 3. Jefferies Financial Group Inc 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)
