What are analysts saying about Sealed Air Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sealed Air Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sealed Air’s guidance for 2017 has come in lower than expected due to unfavorable impact of currency and weaker–than-anticipated growth in the Diversey Care segment owing to the brand licensing expiration with SC Johnson. For 2017, Sealed Air projects organic revenue growth of 2.5%, adjusted EBITDA of $1.18 billion and adjusted earnings per share to be around $2.70. The company’s results will continue to be affected by weakness in industrial-based businesses. Sealed Air continues to invest in R&D, sales and marketing. Even though these investments will drive future growth it will affect margins in the near term. Further, the company’s shares have underperformed the Zacks categorized sub industry." (4/25/2017)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are reducing our 1Q17 adj. EBITDA estimate from $249 million to $245 million (up 1% YOY) and our 2017 estimate from $1.175 billion to $1.173 billion (guidance is ~$1.18 billion). Industrial market weakness plagued SEE throughout 2016, and the global market doesn’t appear to be improving so far in 2017, at least according to SEE. In addition, SEE is dealing with FX translation drags, the short-term impact of the pending expiration of its agreement with SC Johnson, and higher resin prices. Consequently, the Company commented yesterday that its adj. EBITDA could be flat in 1Q17, and we are reducing our estimate accordingly." (2/24/2017)
