What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sealed Air stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sealed Air stock:
  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are slightly increasing our 2018 adjusted EBITDA estimate from $895 million to $900 million (at the midpoint of guidance of $890 million to $910 million) and our 2019 EBITDA estimate from $915 million to $920 million (consensus is $951 million); we are moving to the midpoint of guidance for 2018 following the Company’s slight beat in 2Q. For 2019, we assume a minimal EBITDA contribution from just-acquired AFP (~$5 million), such that the majority of our assumed $20 million of EBITDA growth is organic. We realize our assumed rate of organic EBITDA growth for 2019 is lower than that in 2018, but we also note that SEE’s EBITDA was essentially flat in the previous two years. At the midpoint of its 2018 EBITDA guidance, SEE is trading at 11.2x EV/EBITDA, roughly in line with the five-year average. We think the valuation is fair." (8/2/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sealed Air will benefit from the sale of Diversey which will help it enhance focus on Food Care and Product Care divisions. Its top-line will be supported by accelerated growth in the global protein market along with the e-Commerce sector. Innovations and acquisitions will also drive growth. For 2018, Sealed Air projects net sales of approximately $4.75-$4.80 billion and adjusted earnings per share at $2.45-$2.55, an increase of 38% at the mid-point. However, stranded costs following the Diversey sale, increasing raw material prices remain headwinds. 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.The stock has underperformed the industry over the past year." (7/3/2018)
