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, "Sonoco’s first-quarter 2020 earnings per share (EPS) beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate and improved year over year. Sales however missed the consensus mark and declined year on year. It has withdrawn the 2020 financial guidance due to the uncertainty related to the coronavirus pandemic. The company has provided guidance for second-quarter 2020 and expects adjusted EPS at 73- 83 cents compared with the year-ago quarter’s 95 cents. The guidance reflects a negative price/cost relationship, due to higher recycled fiber costs, and a negative impact from a strong U.S. dollar. Moreover, the company’s results will likely be hurt by weak demand across its business due to the pandemic. However, Sonoco will gain from growth in consumer-related businesses and its focus on improving productivity, cost control and solid financial position." (5/22/2020)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We think SON remains a solid defensive holding; only valuation keeps us on the sidelines." (7/18/2019)
