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 According to Zacks Investment Research, "WestRock has withdrawn fiscal 2020 guidance for net sales, adjusted EBITDA and cash flow citing the uncertainty associated with the COVID-19. The pandemic has impacted demand across few of its businesses — foodservice, commercial print, luxury goods and industrial products. However, strong demand for e-commerce and for packaging for food, beverage, household cleaning and liquid products amid the coronavirus-induced crisis have been driving the company. Higher recycled fiber costs will impact margins. Further, the consumer packaging segment will continue to bear the brunt of the ongoing volume declines in commercial print and tobacco over the past few years. WestRock is taking steps to align supply with demand and framed a Pandemic Action Plan to drive savings. Acquisitions and investments backed by a solid balance sheet will aid growth." (8/3/2020)
  • 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)." (9/23/2019)
