Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pinnacle Foods stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pinnacle Foods’, which is set to be acquired by Conagra Brands by the end of 2018, witnessed its shares surpass the industry in the past six months. The company has been gaining from sturdy in-market performance. In fact, with first-quarter 2018 results, the company marked its 16th consecutive period of growth in composite market share. Moreover, top-line performance in the quarter gained from enhanced volume/mix, net price realization and favorable currency impacts. Additionally, Pinnacle Foods’ buyouts and innovation efforts have radically boosted its portfolio. The company is also on-track with productivity enhancing and network optimization efforts. Considering such upsides, management provided an encouraging view for 2018. However, the company’s Specialty Foods unit continues to face challenges, owing to negative impacts of the AJ exit. Also, input cost inflation, stemming from higher transportation costs is a concern." (7/10/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "1Q18 results were largely in line and 2018 guidance was reaffirmed. We are encouraged by the acceleration in top-line growth, which is supportive of our BSM thesis. Though gross margins missed expectations, we view the issues driving the weakness as transitory and expect gross margin to grow y/y starting in 2Q18. We reiterate our Buy rating on PF, which factors robust product innovation pipeline, significant M&A optionality and improving margin prospects." (5/8/2018)
