Kraft Heinz growth prospects 'not appetizing,' Barron's says

As consumers flock to the fresh and prepared foods, Kraft Heinz is exposed to "the dead zone," with products such as Heinz Ketchup, Kraft macaroni and cheese, Kool-Ai, Jell-O, Capri Sun drinks, Maxwell House coffee, and Planters nuts, Andrew Bary writes in this week's edition of Barron's. The company is also vulnerable to increasing private-label competition for its chilled products, the report adds, noting that it all adds up to one of the weaker portfolios in the food and household-products industry. Further, Bary points out that Kraft Heinz has a high valuation in a difficult industry, but its growth prospects "are not appetizing. Reference Link

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.

Sell Campbell Soup shares on recent strength, says Piper Jaffray
After The New York Post reported that Kraft Heinz (KHC) would potentially be interested in buying Campbell Soup (CPB), Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery said he would not consider this deal consistent with Kraft's desire for strong brands that can travel internationally. In a research note to investors, Lavery said his bullish view of Kraft Heinz rests in part on his expectation that a deal helps improve its long-term growth outlook, and added that while a Campbell deal could be a bridge to others, he believes it could seem "disappointing" relative to other potential targets." Lavery added that "anything is possible," but would sell Campbell shares on recent strength. Lavery has an Underweight rating and $36 price target on Campbell Soup and an Overweight rating and $73 price target on Kraft Heinz.

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.

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.
