What are Wall Street analysts saying about SYSCO stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about SYSCO stock:
  • 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We also question how long Sysco can remain immune from the recent industry pressures in its U.S Foodservice operations. Both US Foods and PFGC are spending heavily on marketing associates to address a general slowdown in case volumes to independents. The factors behind the recent earnings setbacks at PFGC and USFD should also have some relevance for Sysco. Ahead of 1Q19 earnings on 11/5, we are lowering our estimates to account for slightly higher expense assumptions." (11/2/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sysco surpassed the industry in a year, driven by strength in its U.S. Foodservice unit. Also, the company is gaining from its solid brand portfolio, digital initiatives and focus on buyouts. Further, Sysco is on track with its cost-savings plan and key goals for 2020. Such endeavors helped the company retain its stellar record in second-quarter fiscal 2018, wherein both the top and bottom line grew year over year. However, Sysco’s European business continued to struggle with higher costs related to transformation efforts. Also, the company continues to bear the brunt of higher inbound freight costs, stemming from driver availability challenges in the industry. Moreover, Sysco’s international unit remains challenged with cost inflation in the U.K., driven by higher product costs and currency movements. Nonetheless, management's second half outlook looks encouraging. Estimates have remained stable lately ahead of earnings." (8/8/2018)
