What are Wall Street analysts saying about Post stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Post stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Post Holdings Inc. is a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of branded ready-to-eat cereals in the United States and Canada. The Company's products are manufactured through a production platform consisting of four owned primary facilities and sold through a variety of channels such as grocery stores, mass merchandisers, club stores, and drug stores. Its portfolio of brands includes diverse offerings such as Honey Bunches of Oats, Pebbles, Post Selects, Great Grains, Spoon Size Shredded Wheat, Post Raisin Bran, Grape-Nuts and Honeycomb. Post Holdings Inc. is based in St. Louis, Missouri. " (2/8/2018)
- 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We are confident that this is a tremendous entry point in the shares. Post Consumer Brands sales rose 1.9% but down 4.2% on a pro forma basis. Recall that the North American part of Weetabix – about $100 million in sales was barely profitable so that has the effect of depressing EBITDA margins. Volume fell 2.4%, EBITDA fell slightly and EBITDA margin fell 110 BP due to the change in business mix. Weetabix, which is the U.K. part of the acquisition posted a 1.2% pro forma decline in sales. There was no pro forma EBITDA comparison with LY. The brand was previously on a calendar year and heavily promoted into the December Q. POST intentionally backed off that calendar push to reset for more business-driven promotions. Michael Food Group sales rose 6.9%; on a 9.3% rise in egg sales; volume rose 3.8%. EBITDA dollars rose 23.9% and EBITDA margin rose 250 BP year over year." (2/2/2018)

Post (NYSE:POST) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
