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 outperformed the industry year to date, driven by a robust surprise history, which continued in first-quarter 2019. Earnings outpaced estimates in the first quarter while sales were in line. This marked the company’s third straight earnings beat, with positive sales surprise in three of the last five quarters. Strong depletions and shipments growth, supported by strength in Truly Hard Seltzer and Twisted Tea brands, aided top and bottom-line performance. Its focus on the three-point growth plan, including cost savings, long-term innovation and the revival of Samuel Adams and Angry Orchard brands, also bode well. However, earnings were partly negated by higher operating expenses and lower gross margin, due to higher processing costs at third-party breweries. Persistent softness in the Samuel Adams brand also remains a major headwind." (6/26/2019)
  • 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)
