What are Wall Street analysts saying about Boston Beer stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Boston Beer stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Boston Beer outpaced the industry year to date driven by the progress on its three-point growth plan, focused on cost savings, long-term innovation and the revival of Samuel Adams and Angry Orchard brands. The company’s third-quarter 2018 top and bottom lines beat estimates and grew year over year. While this marked Boston Beer’s earnings beat in six of the trailing eight quarters, sales surpassed estimates in four of the last six quarters. Results were fueled by strong depletions growth and higher shipment volumes. Further, management’s raised 2018 earnings and depletions outlook drives optimism. However, persistent softness in the Samuel Adams brand is a major headwind. Further, the company lowered gross margin forecast for 2018, given industry-wide headwinds of higher packaging and transportation costs. It also expects operating expenses to rise due to brand innovations and marketing strategies, which may hurt profitability." (12/31/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "SAM delivered a mixed 3Q on stronger revs (+10% vs. Street), incl. +18% depletion growth, though an OI miss (-12%) as investments/freight weighed on OM %. Upwardly revised FY18 guide and +13% YTD depletions indicative of portfolio’s momentum (ex-beer), which should help sustain stock’s full ~30x EV/ULFCF multiple; however, we prefer Buy-rated STZ in the alcohol space. We lower our on further OM % pressure. PT to $270 on higher group multiple." (10/26/2018)
