Sonoco Products has to find acquisitions to meet targets, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Mark Wilde kept his $54 price target and Market Perform rating on Sonoco Products after its investor day last week. Wilde says the company's 2020 targets would allow it to earn some $300M in incremental EBITDA, modeling a 40% stock price upside based on current multiple. However, the analyst also contends that the company "needs to find suitable acquisitions at reasonable valuations" to meet its goals, which is not easy in the current environment.
