Sonoco Products Company (SON) (NYSE:SON) is a U.S.-based packaging company. Sonoco provides consumer packaging, industrial products, protective packaging, and packaging supply chain services and is the world's largest producer of composite cans, tubes, and cores.

Sonoco will step up to the earnings plate tomorrow, February 11 before the market opens. Wall Street consensus projects SON to report an earnings per share (EPS) of $0.77 in its report tomorrow. The stock has a history of muted post-earnings reaction, averaging a 1.8% move in the last eight quarters, regardless of direction. 

On the charts, Sonoco stock is a chip-shot from its Dec. 14 annual high of $62.13. Last seen trading at $62.07, the shares bounced from their 80-day moving average earlier in 2021. The equity is ripe for a shift in analyst attention too, considering seven of nine in coverage maintain tepid "hold" ratings.
