  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "For the fourth quarter, Sonoco expects EPS in the range of $0.60–$0.65, a 4% y-o-y decline at the mid-point due to seasonality and fewer business days. Sonoco raised its 2016 EPS guidance range to $2.70–$2.75. The company remains focused on gaining market share by introducing products and pursuing strategic acquisitions. During the quarter, Sonoco spent $20 million on two protective solutions acquisitions that will complement its ThermoSafe business in the growing temperature-assured packaging market. The divestiture of its rigid plastics blow molding operation will aid Sonoco focus on its consumer packaging portfolio. Over the past 1 year, Sonoco has outperformed the Zacks categorized subindustry. However, tough market conditions are expected to hurt its corrugating medium operations. Effect of a manufacturing slowdown in the U.S. on the industrial businesses and a stronger dollar remain near-term concerns." (1/5/2017)
