What are analysts saying about J.M. Smucker Company (The) stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about J.M. Smucker Company (The) stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Estimates have been declining since Smucker posted second quarter fiscal 2017 results. While the bottom line surpassed estimates, sales marked its second consecutive miss. In fact, the stock has underperformed the Zacks categorized industry over the past six months. Sales have been declining due to currency headwinds, lower coffee volumes, lower pricing, sluggish pet food sales and the divestiture of the U.S. canned milk business. The recent increase in coffee prices will also negatively impact the coffee volumes. Though the company remains optimistic on the company’s acquisitions and innovation program and remains focused on improving the performance of the mainstream dog and cat brands, heightened competition in the pet food business in the near term remains a concern. Further, we remain concerned that the company's weak sales in the first half put its full-year forecast under threat." (1/18/2017)
Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We expect retailers to increase their inventory on Smucker’s coffee brands and Nature’s Recipe in the back half of the fiscal year in response to these initiatives, but we do not think they will be enough to spur the 2-3% organic growth that management guidance implies. In addition, we fear that elasticity of demand in coffee and continued weakness in Smucker’s core pet brands will lead to weaker-than-expected growth in fiscal 2018. We are raising our fiscal 2017 EPS to $7.67 (from $7.64) because we think the company has sufficient cost savings for the year, but lowering our fiscal 2018 EPS estimate to $8.05 (compared to consensus of $8.17) and lowering our target price to $134/share (from $138)." (11/18/2016)
Susquehanna Bancshares Inc analysts commented, "We are keeping the Neutral stance but are actually becoming more constructive on valuation and increased belief the company can hit the FY17 EPS range (ex-amortization) of $7.42-7.53 (which at current levels would put the stock at 16.5x, well below the group average of 22x; although we note that is not an apples to apples comparison). Today’s 3% pullback (and the 9% jump after 2Q results in Nov.) shows the stock trades as a "growth stock," but SJM is more of a self-help story (Big Heart synergies; efficiency programs in Consumer Foods) dealing in somewhat matured categories (coffee, spreads, pet food) with only niches flattering the growth profile (K-cups are 22% of coffee; pet snacks are ~30% of pet food). On the self-help front, today’s quarter was good (ex a 14c one-time gain, EPS of $1.62 was in line with consensus, as management said at CAGNY last week): pet food is delivering synergies ahead of the original guidance, EBIT margins in Consumer Foods were up 340bp, and Coffee margins jumped 420bp (which bodes well for FY17) as not all lower coffee costs were passed back in the July price cuts."
