What are analysts saying about Tyson Foods stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Tyson Foods stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Tyson Foods’ have outperformed the industry in the past one month owing to its recently raised earnings guidance for fiscal 2017, backed by the consistent growth in its beef segment. Notably the Beef segment that had been sluggish in the past is now benefiting from robust domestic demand, improved availability of cattle supply and higher exports. Strong volume growth has also been observed across the company’s Pork and Chicken segments. Acquisitions related synergies, increased demand for chicken and strong focus on protein packed brands have also acted as growth drivers for Tyson Foods. Also, the acquisition of AdvancePierre, divestment of non-protein businesses, and the recent investments in expanding its poultry plants are in-line with the company’s strategy to improve its protein-packed brands portfolio. However, stressed margins owing to rising costs and higher wages remain its woes." (10/4/2017)
- 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We see TSN’s valuation as keyed off the “growth company” view which we question. Margins across the face of the business are in decline. We don’t love the AdvancePierre deal and expect it to be a disappointment while still accretive to EPS." (8/8/2017)
- 3. Argus analysts commented, "We are downgrading Tyson Foods Inc. (NYSE: TSN) from BUY to HOLD. Although the company posted strong fiscal 1Q17 results, we are concerned about an SEC investigation of Tyson and other poultry producers for alleged manipulation of a chicken pricing index. We also see the potential for decelerating earnings in the coming quarters and are concerned about the recent bird flu outbreak at poultry farms in Tennessee and Alabama. In addition, we believe that the company's new CEO, Tom Hayes, is likely to be cautious about acquisitions and business expansion, and believe that this is weighing on TSN shares. If the company is able to resolve its legal issues and continues to report strong earnings, we would consider returning the stock to our BUY list. For investors interested in the Consumer Staples sector, we recommend the shares of BUY-rated Clorox (CLX). Our long-term rating on TSN remains BUY, based on our expectations for benefits from the Hillshire Brands acquisition and continued stock buybacks and dividend increases." (3/16/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
