What are Wall Street analysts saying about Westrock stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Westrock stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "WestRock projects adjusted segment EBITDA at $880-$925 million for fourth-quarter fiscal 2019. Benefits from higher sequential seasonal volumes across both segments will be offset by lower containerboard prices. The company’s guidance for fiscal 2019 adjusted EBITDA is at $3.25 billion, down from $3.3 billion-$3.4 billion. In fiscal 2019, higher maintenance downtime compared with the prior year will impact results. The estimates for the current quarter and fiscal have thus undergone negative revisions lately. Nevertheless, the acquisition of KapStone is likely to generate significant cost synergies and expand its paper packaging product offering in the days ahead. Productivity and performance improvement programs and cost-saving actions remain tailwinds. The company also remains focused on lowering debt levels." (10/14/2019)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We’re maintaining our FY19 adj. EBITDA estimate as we were already below the midpoint of guidance, as well as our well below-consensus FY20 adj. EBITDA estimate; we’re raising our FY20 free cash flow estimate on more favorable working capital. WRK will presumably issue FY20 adj. EBITDA and cash flow guidance on its upcoming F4Q19 call. We’re maintaining our FY19 adj. EBITDA estimate of $3.241B (guidance is ~$3.25B at the midpoint) and FY20 estimate of $2.915B (a substantial ~7% below consensus of $3.143B according to Bloomberg). In FY20, WRK should benefit from additional KapStone synergies (we assume $50M-$60M), recent capital projects ($70M of expected EBITDA benefits), and the non-recurrence of costs associated with those capital projects (which totaled $36M in the past two quarters)."
