What are Wall Street analysts saying about Tyson Foods stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Tyson Foods stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Tyson Foods has lagged the industry in the past three months thanks to volatile market conditions in the Chicken and Pork categories. Sadly, management expects domestic and export prices of chicken and pork to be negatively impacted by increased tariff rates in 2018. This as well as a tough commodity market propelled management to narrow its fiscal 2018 earnings view. Also, higher freight costs have been hurting Tyson Foods’ operating income for a while and are likely to linger in fiscal 2018. Nonetheless, Tyson Foods’ Beef and Prepared Foods segments have been growing steadily on the back of rising demand for protein-rich products. In fact, this, combined with savings from the Financial Fitness program, benefits from tax reforms and synergies from the AdvancePierre’ buyout were key drivers of Tyson Foods’ third-quarter fiscal 2018 performance. Notably, protein demand is expected to continue rising, which bodes well." (10/16/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Today’s announcement that Tom Hayes is stepping down as CEO for personal reasons caught us by surprise. CEO transitions are never easy, especially sudden ones like this. However, we are encouraged by the fact that guidance was reiterated and that the new CEO is Noel White. Mr. White is a TSN veteran and someone we have a great deal of respect for as an outstanding operator. We don’t expect any near term strategic shifts." (9/17/2018)
  • 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We are increasing our estimate to $5.70 for FY18; previously $5.55 (even while cutting our 4Q estimate). At our estimate, which it the low-end of guidance, EBIT dollars would fall 30.7% in the 4Q and EBIT margin would fall 290 BP to 6.0%. Our FY19 estimate goes to $4.10 ($3.65 previously) and we introduce a FY20 estimate of $3.75. “Short-term headwinds.” Tyson’s commentary on the current position of the business was remarkably sanguine. They acknowledged the low visibility of the outlook for trade and the importance of the export market to maintaining margins. Tyson seems to say there is nothing to see here. Similarly, analyst questions were remarkably tame – no one challenged the notion that margins should stabilize." (8/6/2018)
