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 boasts a robust bottom-line performance, which have surpassed estimates in the trailing six quarters. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, lower tax rates supported bottom-line performance. The quarter also witnessed improved sales in the Chicken and Beef categories. Further, the company focuses on strategic acquisitions to strengthen portfolio. The company’s Financial Fitness Plan has also been yielding well. However, Tyson Foods, whose shares underperformed the industry in the past three months, witnessed lower sales volumes in the Pork and Prepared Foods categories during the fourth quarter. While the Pork category was negatively impacted by adverse demand-supply conditions, the Prepared Foods category was hurt by divestitures. Further, the company has been facing volatility in domestic and export prices of chicken and pork. To top it, management provided a dismal earnings projection for fiscal 2019." (1/14/2019) 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) Has Tyson Foods been receiving favorable news coverage?
