According to Zacks, “Silgan raised its adjusted earnings per share guidance for full-year 2017 to the range of $3.20–$3.40. For the second quarter, Silgan estimates adjusted earnings in the range of $0.65–$0.75 per share. Silgan is poised to gain from the favorable impact from the Dispensing Systems business acquisition. Recently, the board of Silgan has approved a two-for-one stock split and a quarterly cash dividend. These actions will enhance the liquidity of its shares. Despite near-term headwinds, the company will benefit from improvement in its footprint optimization programs and debt restructuring. Moreover, the stock outperformed the Zacks sub-industry the past one year. However, increase in debt and unfavorable foreign currency translation is likely to hurt the company’s results.”
