What are Wall Street analysts saying about PINNACLE FOODS INC Common Stock stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PINNACLE FOODS INC Common Stock stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pinnacle Foods has been expanding market share through strategic buyouts and product innovations. In fact the company has been striving to expand its Birds Eye and Duncan Hines products line through product launches and acquisitions. Moreover, strong in-market performance combined with enhancements in retail segments has been fueling the company’s top-line performance. We expect such initiatives to help uplift the stock that has declined in the past three months, while it fared better than the industry. Additionally, Pinnacle Foods’ productivity initiatives have been aiding the company to generate savings and gain business efficiency. Considering such upsides, management provided an encouraging view for 2018. However, the company’s Specialty Foods unit continued to be challenged. Escalated marketing expenses and input cost inflation also remain concerns. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of first quarter earnings release." (4/17/2018)
