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 has outdone the industry in a year, gaining from its sturdy U.S. Foodservice Operations. The trend continued in fourth-quarter fiscal 2018, wherein U.S. Foodservice sales advanced 6.1% with local case volumes up 5%. Markedly, local case volumes here have been improving year over year for 17 straight quarters. The company also gained from favorable results in its International segment. Notably, with fourth-quarter results, Sysco marked the successful completion of its three-year financial plan, wherein it exceeded certain metrics. On the flip side, the company continues to bear the brunt of higher inbound freight costs and food cost inflation, which hurt its U.S. segment gross margin. Product cost inflation also served as a headwind for the International unit, which remains pressurized by adverse currency movements in the U.K. Nonetheless, we expect Sysco’s strategies for 2020 to help it sustain the solid momentum." (11/16/2018)
  • 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)
