What are analysts saying about Westrock Company stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Westrock Company stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "WestRock’s first-quarter fiscal 2017 adjusted earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 4% while revenues fell short by 1%. In the fiscal second-quarter 2017, WestRock expects sequential earnings to be higher, benefitting from seasonally higher volumes in both consumer and corrugated as well as four more box shipping days and less maintenance downtime. However, higher input costs including wage inflation will affect results in the second quarter. As recycled fiber prices and energy continue to rise, rising input costs is likely to weigh on margins in the rest of the quarters in fiscal 2017 as well. Further, merger-related expenses, weak primary demand for processed, frozen, and dry foods and carbonated soft drinks as well as a stronger dollar may weigh on WestRock’s near-term results. WestRock has underperformed the Zacks categorized Paper and Paper Products sub industry in the past one year." (1/31/2017)
- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "With the stock trading with a 10% PF FCF yield and mgmt doing a good job unlocking value with the HH&B divestiture and acquisition of MPSX, we remain comfortable with our Buy. While higher input costs are muting the impact of the fall containerboard price increase, given the tightness of the market, we could see a spring price hike which provide could meaningful upside to our estimates." (1/25/2017)
Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We believe WRK in part will offset these pressures with the integration of the Carolina brand (expected to increase to 150k in FQ3 from 12k in FQ2) and share gains in folding cartons, which should help WRK to outperform the market and maintain high operating efficiency and improve cost. Catalysts: FQ3 16 results in July." (5/3/2016)
