Wells Fargo Thinks Newell Brands’ Stock is Going to Recover


Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog reiterated a Buy rating on Newell Brands (NWL) today and set a price target of $21. The company’s shares opened today at $17.23, close to its 52-week low of $15.12.

Herzog noted:

“We also expect the board to hold management accountable (interestingly, we note director Jim Craigie attended NWL’s presentation and breakout). Looking forward, we believe FY19 guidance was set very conservatively, with potential upside to Q1, and the set-up is now a beat-and-raise story over the next 12 months. We continue to see significant upside for NWL shares and reiterate our Outperform rating.”
