Company Report

Smucker's Earnings Growth Likely to Fall Short of Its High-Single-Digit Target Organically

Smucker has the leading brand in some categories, but we don’t think it enjoys pricing power or entrenched retailer relationships to create an economic moat. Its long-term strategy is to turn low-single-digit sales growth into mid-single-digit adjusted operating income growth, leading to high-single-digit adjusted EPS growth—but we expect mid-single-digit growth as likely.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Even after paring back its pet exposure, Smucker has retained ownership of its strongest pet brands, which could allow it to benefit from the continued trend of increased pet ownership and spending.

Bears

Paying a full price for Hostess Brands has increased the difficulty for Smucker to create value from the acquisition while also significantly adding to its debt load.
