What are Wall Street analysts saying about Performance Food Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Performance Food Group stock:
  • 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We don’t have substantive changes to our FY19 estimates following PFGC’s 1Q19 results. For FY20, we have revised our EBITDA est. to $500 million (from $530 million previously). Mgt. had already telegraphed that growth would be subdued in 1H19 based on continued investments in warehouse personnel, drivers, and new salespeople. Based on the consolidation of reporting segments, the EBITDA growth was again disproportionately driven by the Vistar segment with the core Foodservice segment down by 5% from last year. We are keeping our price target unchanged at $31. The most meaningful takeaway from the earnings call was some confirmation that same-store sales trends have started to soften with independents."
