What are Wall Street analysts saying about Westrock stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Westrock stock:
  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We’re maintaining our FY19 estimate – which was already well below guidance – and our FY20 estimate, which implies EBITDA declines in FY20. There was nothing overly surprising about the guidance reduction or about WRK’s containerboard industry commentary in our view." (5/1/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Backed by favorable demand, price and mix trends across its paper and packaging businesses for fiscal 2018, WestRock expects revenues of around $16.3 billion and adjusted segment EBITDA to come in above $2.9 billion in fiscal 2018. The U.S. Department of Justice has cleared WestRock's pending acquisition of KapStone through Whiskey Holdco, Inc. - the last antitrust approval required to complete the pending acquisition. The acquisition of rival, KapStone, is in sync with WestRock's existing operational footprint. The buyout should generate significant cost synergies and broaden the company’s paper packaging product offering. Productivity and performance improvement programs, along with cost-saving actions remain tailwinds. However, WestRock underperformed the industry in the past year. Higher debt following the KapStone acquisition and higher input costs remain headwinds." (11/17/2018)
