Kraft Heinz lower ahead of night-before-earnings management slidecast

Kraft Heinz shares are lower after the company last night announced that it would release today after the close a management slidecast to update its progress since the 2015 merger of Kraft and Heinz. The company reports Q4 results tomorrow morning. JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman, in a research note last night, said he cannot recall the last time a company put out a presentation the night before earnings. After speaking to the company, Goldman expects a pre-recorded video and audio presentation that features a number of different managers and/or stakeholders, designed to be "somewhat evergreen" and intended to put the company "in a very positive light." Based on conversations, the analyst believes the majority of investors seem to be interpreting the announcement negatively. Kraft Heinz's earnings "could be weak," and it is possible that the company has already been rejected by other potential takeover targets, Goldman tells investors in a research note. He would not be surprised, however, if the company's renewed public relations effort "were the precursor to a bid, not a reaction to a failed one." Kraft Heinz in early trading is down 99c to $70.94.

Overweight
Kraft Heinz current value reflects 'peak pessimism,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Grainger believes that the risk-reward associated with Kraft Heinz as current levels looks "increasingly compelling." Disappointing recent U.S. top-line headwinds look ultimately fixable, while improving emerging markets and costs should support above-peer growth in 2018, said Grainger. He also thinks the stock still warrants some level of strategic premium given the company's M&A track record, noting that management has recently underscored a desire to be a "force of consolidation" in an industry where valuations are now at more supportive levels, Grainger tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating and $88 price target on Kraft Heinz shares.

Buy
Kraft Heinz initiated with a Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Akshay Jagdale started Kraft Heinz with a Buy rating and $95 price target. The analyst views the company as a core holding given its "best-in-class" M&A optionality, improving returns and sales growth. He believes Kraft Heinz is positioned to outperform peers.

Outperform
Kraft Heinz price target lowered to $90 from $100 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Robert Moskow lowered his price target for Kraft Heinz to $90 from $100 as Q3 adjusted EPS was better than consensus, but the momentum build from Q2 was not as robust as management hoped it would be. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Kraft Heinz price target lowered to $82 from $96 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Kenneth Zaslow lowered his price target on Kraft Heinz to $82 and kept his Market Perform rating following Q3 results that showed lower than expected tax rate offsetting lower than expected organic revenue growth. Zaslow contends that the company is faced with "a litany of challenges" such as ongoing private label pressure amid widening price gaps in natural cheese and international competition in infant nutrition and canned vegetables. Internally, the analyst notes potential supply chain and distribution headwinds in the U.S. that will likely limit top-line and EBITDA growth.
