What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sonoco Products stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sonoco Products stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "For full-year 2018, Sonoco expects its adjusted earnings per share will be $3.22-$3.32, reflecting a downward revision in the expected effective tax rate and anticipated earnings accretion from the Highland Packaging acquisition. Compared with the earnings per share in 2017, the mid-point of the guidance reflects year-over-year growth of 17%. For second-quarter 2018, the company projects adjusted earnings per share of 83-89 cents, reflecting 100% year-over-year growth at the mid-point. Sonoco is poised to gain from the Highland Packaging acquisition which will strengthen its thermoforming business. Further, its Grow and Optimize strategy will also aid growth. Moreover, the stock has outerformed the industry over the past year. However, impact of the transition tax, inflationary pressure and operational issues will affect Sonoco’s performance. A strong dollar also remains another headwind. " (6/19/2018)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We consider SON a solid defensive holding on account of its relatively low leverage (below 2.0x), high dividend yield, and continued and perhaps underappreciated shift toward consumer-oriented businesses. However, volume/mix remains a challenge, and at nearly 9.0x our 2018 adj. EBITDA estimate, we think the valuation is fair and consequently reiterate our SW rating." (4/19/2018)
