  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We think SON remains a solid defensive holding; only valuation keeps us on the sidelines." (7/18/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sonoco revised fourth-quarter and fiscal 2018 guidance due to the receipt of business interruption insurance proceeds in the fourth quarter associated with the impact of flooding on operations owing to Hurricane Florence in September. The company anticipates delivering a record performance on all counts — sales, operating profit, earnings, operating cash flow and free cash flow, in 2018. The 2018 earnings per share guidance is at $3.32-$3.38, reflecting a year-over-year increase of 20%. The company will gain from acquisitions, development of new products and cost control. The company has a positive record of earnings surpises over the last few quarters. It has outperformed the industry over the past year. However, impact of tariffs on steel, aluminum and other products and inflationary cost pressure from higher freight, wages, energy and elevated cost for materials will continue to hurt Sonoco's results."
