Freshpet downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on valuation

As previously reported, SunTrust analyst William Chappell downgraded Freshpet to Hold from Buy and kept his $50 price target on the stock. The analyst says his positive view of the company's fundamental story and outlook have not changed as it holds a pet food market share of only 3.3% in spite of its marketing driven growth over the past two years, but he cannot recommend for new investors to buy the stock at its current levels. Chappell adds that the "takeout premium" embedded in Freshpet valuation is likely "overstated" by the multiple's of recent acquisitions among the more "established food companies", since Freshpet is a niche company and would have a harder time offering synergies to a potential acquirer.

Freshpet price target raised to $40 from $35 at Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst George Kelly raised his price target for Freshpet to $40 saying the company posted "strong" Q4 results and offered positive commentary at an investor lunch he hosted last week. However, the stock reflects this positive outlook, having appreciated 100% over the past year and now carrying a premium multiple, Kelly tells investors in a research note. He's having "difficulty mapping out the next leg up" and recommends waiting for a more attractive entry point. As such, the analyst maintains an In-Line rating on Freshpet.

Freshpet price target raised to $45 from $37 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst William Chappell raised his price target on Freshpet to $45 and kept his Buy rating after his meeting with its management and its ICR conference presentation. The analyst cites the company's "continued solid top-line growth trends, expected gross margin improvement in 2019 driven by manufacturing improvements and pricing, and expected future leverage on ad spend." Chappell also remains positive on Freshpet's position as a "pioneer in the refrigerated pet food market and its faster-than-peer growth".
