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:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Smucker’s shares have underperformed the industry over the past six months. due to unfavorable coffee volumes. Smucker also posted disappointing first-quarter fiscal 2018 results and slashed its earnings guidance for fiscal 2018. Both earnings and sales declined on a year over year basis due to lower coffee volumes, planned increases in commodity costs and higher marketing expense. Nevertheless, the company has resorted to cost cuts amid the tough industry conditions to uplift its performance. It has also been undertaking strategic partnerships and acquisitions to boost its market share. Smucker has been making efforts to expand its e-commerce capabilities in its pet business. Though the company remains focused on improving the performance of the mainstream dog and cat brands, heightened competition in the pet food business are likely to dent Smucker’s performance." (9/22/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We are raising our fiscal 2018 EPS estimate by $0.04 to account for some but not all of the $0.10 of accretion that Smucker expects from its acquisition of the Wesson vegetable oil brand from Conagra. We are maintaining our fiscal 2019 estimate at $8.15 due to our concerns regarding deteriorating trends in the packaged foods industry and the Smucker-specific challenges in coffee and pet food that we highlighted in our November 18 sector report. Wesson makes sense financially, but is dilutive to Smucker’s top-line growth. Wesson is the #3 player in the shortening and oils category, but it is declining at a 20% rate primarily due to distribution losses at Sam’s Club. Because Smucker can produce the products at its existing Crisco facilities, it will not need to take on the manufacturing lines or any material amount of overhead. Management expects about $50M of EBITDA including $20M of annual synergies, thus implying a post-synergy valuation of 5.7x EBITDA. The transaction also comes with long-term tax savings with a present value of $45M over 15 years." (6/1/2017)
