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 seen its shares decline in the past six months has been battling cost-related woes. This along with a mixed international performance weighed on the company’s second-quarter fiscal 2019 results. During the quarter, Sysco’s U.S. Foodservice operating expenses rose, due to high supply-chain costs related to transport and warehouse. The company’s International unit also saw supply-chain hurdles. These factors along with high interest expenses and increased investment costs hit Sysco’s earnings. Further, International sales remained mixed, with Brexit related worries being a drag on the performance in the U.K. Nonetheless, Sysco’s U.S. Foodservice sales remained sturdy. Notably, local case volumes in this unit have been rising for 19 straight quarters now, with rising restaurant sales being a key driver. Also, Sysco’s strategic priorities bode well." (2/6/2019)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We maintain our SELL primarily on the pressures facing Sysco’s international operations and SYGMA. While the U.K. is the biggest source of uncertainty in relation to Brakes, Sysco’s Canadian operations are also facing similar expense pressures based on higher inbound freight costs and driver shortages. The issues at Brakes are of great concern based on the rapid decline in U.K. consumer spending in recent months and continued Brexit uncertainty going forward." (2/1/2019)
