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, "Shares of Post Holdings have declined and underperformed the industry in the last three months. The company has been grappling with declining sales for the past few quarters. During fourth-quarter fiscal 2019, the metric declined 11.5% year over year. The company’s Weetabix unit was weak in the quarter. Additionally, it remains exposed to headwinds arising from competition. Nevertheless, the top and bottom lines surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the fourth quarter. Moreover, earnings grew year over year, somewhat fueled by reduced interest expenses. This and lower debt level bode well. Also, solid performance in the foodservice segment, driven by robust demand in refrigerated potato products is likely to provide some cushion to the top line in the near future." (2/5/2020)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We assume the business had no EBITDA and POST paid about $100 million with $25 mm of integration costs of TSAs and other, offset to a degree by the NPV of tax savings on the asset step-up. POST said it could generate EBITDA margins similar to its own PL RTE business – we think 15%-18%. Even if we are wrong by a good bit on purchase price, this is a superb value-creation deal if EBITDA could be in the $30-$40 million range – a classic POST deal. $$ in the till. Post Consumer Brands sales fell 0.7%; below our estimate and Street consensus of +2.4%. Volume lagged, down 3.6% driven by declines in branded products and some lift in private label. Adjusted EBITDA was $113 million, down 8.6% from LY and well below our $118 estimate and Street estimates of $122 million. EBITDA margin was 246%, down 220 BP Y/Y." (5/3/2019)
