What are Wall Street analysts saying about SYSCO stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about SYSCO stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sysco, which has lagged the industry in the past three months has long been battling cost-related hurdles. This, along with a soft international performance weighed on the company’s first-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein both top and bottom lines missed estimates.  During the quarter, Sysco’s U.S. Foodservice unit operating expenses rose due to high supply chain costs related to transport and warehouse. These woes are expected to linger. Additionally, Sysco’s International sales depicted a slowdown, with several restaurant closures and Brexit related worries impacting UK’s performance. Nonetheless, Sysco has been gaining from sturdy U.S. Foodservice Operations. Notably, local case volumes in this unit have been rising for 18 straight quarters now, with rising restaurant sales being a strong driver. A rosy economic scenario is likely to continue aiding restaurant sales. Also, Sysco’s strategic priorities bode well." (1/15/2019)
  • 2. 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)
