Perrigo earnings potential underappreciated, says Cantor Fitzgerald
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Louise Chen views Perrigo's earnings potential as underappreciated. Upside to earnings in 2018 and beyond will be driven by "solid execution and smart deployment of its growing cash flows," Chen tells investors in a research note after meeting with CEO John Hendrickson and CFO Ron Winowiecki. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $107 price target.

Nestle acquisition of Hain makes sense, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst John Baumgartner believes a Nestle (NSRGY) acquisition of Hain Celestial (HAIN) would make sense. Bloomberg last night reported that Nestle is among the companies exploring a purchase of Hain. Nestle would likely be a good fit for Hain's baby food, skin care and tea businesses, Baumgartner told investors earlier in a research note. The analyst sees "tax leakage" as a headwind for any deal and keeps a Market Perform rating on Hain with a $38 price target.

Hewitt says that despite the recent stock price appreciation, the increasing value of the company's development pipeline suggests the markets is just starting to recognize the opportunity. The analyst has a Buy rating and a $7 price target on the stock.

'Third Wave' coffee shops still too small to hurt Starbucks, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst John Glass said the emergence of more "Third Wave" coffee shops have fueled competitive fears for Starbucks (SBUX), but he contends that the absolute numbers of specialty chains with 10 or more units remain small and most data sources show smaller chains and independents are flat to slightly declining in number. Recent high profile investments in specialty coffee, such as JAB's purchases of Stumptown and Intelligentsia and Nestle's (NSRGY) majority stake in Blue Bottle, are making headlines, but the brands' competitive relevance may be overstated, Glass tells investors. The analyst, who added that the last time McDonald's (MCD) pushed into specialty coffee it had "no discernable negative impact on Starbucks, and arguably even a positive one," keeps an Overweight rating and $62 price target on Starbucks shares.

Kraft Heinz could have interest in Nestle divestitures, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery expects Kraft Heinz (KHC) to pursue further consolidation, likely in packaged food, and believes potential divestitures from Nestle (NSRGY) could fit the company's criteria well. Such a deal could boost Kraft's international scale and provide synergy savings in its U.S. frozen supply chain, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He maintains a Neutral rating on Kraft Heinz shares with a $92 price target.
