Credit Suisse analyst Robert Moskow raised the price target on McCormick & Company (NYSE: MKC) to $104.00 (from $100.00) while maintaining a Outperform rating after the company reported organic sales of 16% in 1Q (CS 7%) and EPS of $0.72 (CS $0.59).
The analyst stated "The beat came from refilling depleted inventory on retailer shelves and continued elevated consumer demand for cooking. Management raised guidance for only half of the beat quantitatively (+1% for sales and 2% for EPS), but emphasized that its “year-to-go” expectations have not changed. In other words, the 1Q beat is largely incremental and shipments are expected to continue to exceed consumption as the company continues to refill depleted herbs, spices, and recipe mix supplies. As a result, we are raising our estimate to the high end of the new sales (8-10%) and EPS ranges ($2.97-$3.02)."
