What are Wall Street analysts saying about Tyson Foods stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Tyson Foods stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "The level of conviction we have in our LT thesis (which is predicated on TSN’s value-added growth strategy) is lower owing to the magnitude of yesterday’s guide-down. However, we view the implied ~28% valuation discount to peers as overdone & we view this as an attractive entry point for LT investors. We acknowledge that it might take a couple of quarters & an acquisition for earnings momentum to turn positive & for the multiple to start re-rating higher again." (7/31/2018)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Tyson Foods has lagged the industry in the past three months, as it continues to incur higher wage and freight costs. Evidently, higher freight expenses negatively impacted operating income in Beef, Chicken, Pork and Prepared Foods segments during the second quarter. These hurdles are also expected to linger in fiscal 2018. Apart from the this, Tyson Foods is also exposed to headwinds such as volatility in the prices and availability of raw materials. Nevertheless, the company has been depicting strong performance in its Chicken, Beef and Prepared Foods segments, driven by the rising demand for protein-rich products. This, along with cost savings from the Financial Fitness program and positive synergies from the AdvancePierre’ buyout, aided the company’s second-quarter fiscal 2018 performance. Encouragingly, Tyson Foods expects such upsides to sustain in the forthcoming periods. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of earnings." (7/30/2018)
