Pivotal sees inflection point in Flowers Foods, ups target to $26
Pivotal Research analyst Timothy Ramey believes the market has not recognized the "clear inflection point" in Flowers Foods. The analyst sees evidence of "strong momentum" at the company and believes Project Centennial will improve profitability. He boosted his 2018 earnings estimate for Flowers to $1.20 from $1.02, well above the consensus estimate of 93c. It is "remarkable" that neither the lower tax rate for 2018 nor the inflection point in margins appears reflected in Street estimates, Ramey tells investors in a research note. He upped his price target for shares to $26 from $23 and keeps a Buy rating on Flowers Foods.
