What are Wall Street analysts saying about Pinnacle Foods stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Pinnacle Foods stock:
  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We are downgrading the shares of and are decreasing our price target from $72 to $68. We assume CAG’s bid to buy the company for $68 will go through without any competing bids. Recall that PF was one of our top picks in part because of buyout potential but also because we thought it was one of the best ways to play our Brands Still Matter theme. We expect CAG’s bid to buy PF will go through without any competing bids. We estimate an average transaction multiple of ~12.0x TTM EBITDA for the food industry between 2010 and 2017 (although valuations have been significantly higher in 2017; see chart 1). At $68/share the deal values PF at ~16x TTM EBITDA, representing a ~ 33% premium to the average multiple paid over the last 7 years, which we believe fairly values PF." (10/15/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Pinnacle Foods, which is set to be acquired by Conagra Brands by the end of 2018, surpassed the industry in the past six months, steadily gaining from sturdy in-market performance. The company has been gaining from its robust brand portfolio and focus on strategic acquisitions. The sturdy in-market trend in second-quarter 2018 was driven by strong retail consumption, mainly attributable to revenue growth in Frozen and Boulder segments. Adjusted earnings for the quarter came in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate, while sales lagged the estimate and declined year over year. Sales were mainly marred by unfavorable Easter timing, while soft performance in the company’s grocery and specialty segments was also a drag. Apart from this, the company is also battling freight cost inflation, which is expected to persist through 2018. Nonetheless, management remains confident of delivering bottom-line growth."
