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 lagged the industry in the past six months. Moreover, the company continues to witness higher packaging and transportation costs, which are denting its gross margin. Also, higher freight costs to distributors are an added concern. Further, it expects higher spending due to brand innovations and marketing strategies, which might hurt profitability. Meanwhile, persistent softness in its Samuel Adams brand remains a major headwind. Soft volumes for the brand are hurting the company’s overall volumes, depletions growth and the top line. However, the company has a robust surprise history that continued in fourth-quarter 2018. With this, it has delivered earnings beat in seven of the trailing nine quarters, with positive sales surprise in five of the last seven quarters. Its focus on the three-point growth plan, including cost savings, long-term innovation and the revival of Samuel Adams and Angry Orchard brands, is encouraging." (4/24/2019) 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) Has Boston Beer been receiving favorable news coverage?
