Citi sees 'low probability' of Campbell Soup putting itself up for sale
After the New York Post said that Kraft Heinz (KHC) would be interested in acquiring Campbell Soup (CPB), Citi analyst David Driscoll said he thinks Campbell deciding to sell itself entirely is a "low probability event" and he believes the company is more likely to pursue divestitures. However, in the low probability scenario that Campbell is put up for sale, his "unconventional pick" for a buyer is Conagra (CAG) rather than Kraft, Driscoll added. He maintains a Buy rating on Campbell Soup shares, which closed up 9% at $42.23 yesterday following the Post's report.

Kraft Heinz buying Campbell will not solve 'perception problem,' says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Alexia Howard note that The New York Post reported that Kraft Heinz (KHC) would be interested in buying Campbell Soup (CPB) should the company decide to put itself up for sale. Based on her accretion analysis, the analyst believes the deal could be slightly EPS dilutive before synergies, and 13%-22% accretive for Kraft Heinz after incorporating cost synergies. Despite the potential EPS accretion, Kraft Heinz buying Campbell Soup will not solve the company's "perception problem," Howard contends, adding that there seems to be a belief that the boards of potential target companies may be unwilling to sell to Kraft Heinz because of the company's poor track record of managing the top line, particularly in the U.S.

Campbell more likely to focus on divestitures than outright sale, says Stifel
Following a New York Post report suggested that Kraft Heinz (KHC) is interested in purchasing Campbell Soup (CPB), Stifel analyst Christopher Growe stated in a note to investors entitled "Mmm, Mmm...Maybe" that he believes Campbell will not pursue an outright sale and will instead focus on small divestitures in front of its deal for Snyder's Lance. While an acquisition of Campbell Soup could bring significant EPS accretion to Kraft Heinz, Growe also believes it would have a negative impact on Kraft's multiple as it would perpetuate the negative perceptions of the company's growth rate, he tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating on Kraft Heinz shares and a Hold rating on Campbell Soup.

Kraft, Campbell deal may not occur, but 'in the end, money talks,' says JPMorgan
On Friday night, The New York Post reported that Kraft Heinz (KHC) "is very much interested in buying Campbell (CPB) -- and believes the soup maker's management will start a sales process soon." JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman told investors in a research note that there are arguments for a potential deal, including the use of Campbell as a "stepping stone" to a larger deal down the road, ownership of the Campbell Soup label, but arguments against it include that Campbell "does not seem to fit" in Kraft's desire to buy growth-type assets that have international expansion potential. Goldman says he "would be surprised" if Kraft wanted Campbell, as it does not solve Kraft's growth problem and is facing "numerous" internal challenges, and does not see a deal occurring. However, Goldman notes that "in the end, money talks," and a deal cannot be dismissed out of hand. Goldman has an Overweight rating and $67 price target on Kraft Heinz shares.
