3 Stocks Wall Street Believes Are Headed Lower

By Riddhima Chakraborty

Last week’s Federal Reserve interest rate increase has thrown cold water on investor sentiment. Furthermore, with continuing geopolitical tensions and COVID-related lockdowns in China, markets might continue to founder in the coming quarters. According to analysts at Deutsche Bank, the S&P 500 is projected to decline  by 20% in 2023.

In addition, according to a recent UBS investor sentiment survey, 51% of respondents have opined that the market is more volatile than usual. So, amid widespread apprehension of a potential future recession, investors should now avoid fundamentally weak stocks.

Wall Street analysts expect J. M. Smucker Company (SJM), Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB), and Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NLY) to plunge further in the near term.

J.M. Smucker Company (SJM)

SJM in Orrville, Ohio, manufactures and markets branded food and beverage products worldwide. It operates in four segments: U.S. Retail Coffee; U.S. Retail Consumer Foods; U.S. Retail Pet Foods; and International and Away from Home.

Analysts expect SJM’s revenue to fall marginally in 2022. Its EPS is estimated to decline by 6.2% to $8.55 in 2022. The stock closed yesterday’s trading session at $142.50. Wall Street analysts expect the stock to hit $132.20 in the near term, which indicates a potential decline of 7.2%.
