What are Wall Street analysts saying about The J. M. Smucker stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about The J. M. Smucker stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Smucker has lagged the industry in the past six months. Higher stay-at-home trends are marring the company’s Away From Home business, which is likely to remain soft. Also, Smucker expects escalated SD&A costs in fiscal 2021. In fact, increased marketing investments in the back half of the year are likely to weigh on earnings in third-quarter fiscal 2021. Nevertheless, the company is benefiting from increased demand due to coronavirus-led higher at-home consumption, which has been driving its retail businesses. This was evident in second-quarter, wherein both earnings and sales grew year over year and beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Results were mainly backed by strength in the U.S. Retail Coffee and U.S. Retail Consumer Foods units, which are likely to keep gaining on elevated demand. Notably, management raised its fiscal 2021 view." (2/15/2021)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "FRANKFURT (dpa-AFX Analyser) – Das Analysehaus Kepler Cheuvreux hat die Einstufung fur Airbus auf Buy" mit einem Kursziel von 77 Euro belassen. Analyst Christophe Menard rechnet in einer am Donnerstag vorliegenden Studie mit schwachen Ergebnissen fur das erste Quartal.
