What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sonoco Products stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sonoco Products stock: 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We don’t expect too many other covered companies to be in a position to raise guidance this year as SON just did, other than the possible exception of Berry Global (BERY) because of resin cost benefits. We are raising our 2019 adj. EPS estimate from $3.50 to $3.57 (at the midpoint of just- raised guidance of $3.52-$3.62) and our 2020 estimate from $3.50 to $3.57 (consensus is $3.69), both on higher margins. We reiterate our SW rating on valuation; SON is trading well above its historical averages on P/E and EV/EBITDA." (4/21/2019) 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."
