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 in the past three months driven by a robust surprise history, which continued in fourth-quarter 2018. With this, the company has delivered earnings beat in seven of the trailing nine quarters, with positive sales surprise in five of the last seven quarters. Top line gains from persistent momentum in shipment volumes and depletions, which is likely to continue in 2019. 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 bodes well. Further, management’s encouraging guidance for the year drives optimism. However, persistent softness in the Samuel Adams brand is a major headwind. The company has also been witnessing higher packaging and transportation costs that are denting gross margin. Further, it expects higher spending due to brand innovations and marketing strategies, which might hurt profitability." (3/12/2019) 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?
