Brazil's biggest meat packing company affected by bribery charges

JBS SA (JBSAF) (BSP:JBSS3), a once-highflying Brazilian meat packing company, experienced a sharp decline in its stock price last Tuesday. The latest 10% decline is just the tip of the iceberg as JBS shares have already declined 41% these past few trading days. It seems investors are trying to get out as the company is in the midst of a corruption scandal in Brazil.

Backed by prosecutors who have recordings as evidence, reports started circulating that JBS' owners Wesley and Joesley Batista bribed Brazilian politicians. The revelation further implicated Brazilian President Michel Temer, with many calling for his resignation.

May 26, 2015 (Maple Hill Syndicate) – Many people get antsy when a stock has doubled from the purchase price.

That’s understandable, but a stock that has doubled shouldn’t be automatically be sold, or even trimmed.

The decision should depend on three things:

  • Your evaluation of the stock’s prospects looking forward, never mind the past.
  • The stock’s current valuation compared to earnings, revenue and book value (company net worth per share).
  • The percentage of your portfolio the stock now represents.

In client portfolios, I almost always trim stocks if they reach 10% of the account’s value. But whether it’s a

Consumer spending in the U.S. dropped 0.2% in January. However, after adjusting it for inflation, it actually rose 0.3% during the period. Consumers continue to spend as gasoline prices are on the decline. Nonetheless, people are not splurging on unnecessary things, when it comes to the regular food such as meat. Pork prices have been on the rise. Therefore, consumers are willing to have chicken products, which is lighter on their pockets.

Shares of Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (PPC), a chicken producer of the U.S., have surged 63% in the last one year solely because of higher demand for chicken which

The meat and poultry industry is the largest segment of U.S. agriculture. As per the National Chicken Council, in a little over 50 years, the U.S. broiler industry has evolved from fragmented, locally oriented businesses into a highly efficient, vertically integrated, progressive success story increasingly supplying customers nationwide and around the globe. The modern chicken industry produces nutritious, wholesome, high-quality products that became more affordable year after year. Much of the success of the industry can be attributed to a more efficient structure, organization, improved production and processing technologies, and a continuing response to consumer demands.

In this article, let's take a look at Campbell Soup Company (CPB), a $13.44 billion market cap company, which is a major producer of branded soups and other grocery food products.

Soup and more

Campbell has a dominant competitive position in the U.S. and controls about 60% of the wet soup category. Its operating margins in this category are more than 20% which are especially attractive. The company focuses not only soup but also other products like Pace Mexican salsa, Prego pasta sauce, V8 juice beverages and Pepperidge Farm cookies and crackers.

In Part 8 of the 54 Part Dividend Aristocrats in Focus series, we will look into meat and consumer food business Hormel (HRL).

A large portfolio

The company has a large portfolio of protein brands. It is characterized by having higher prices than competitors while maintaining a leading position. The firm has managed to gain excess returns, and it could maintain in the future a ROIC of 20% which we think is very attractive.

Management has focused on brand innovation in order to identify new opportunities. Examples include, creating new protein-meals (e.g.,

In spite of reporting record second-quarter brings about May, Hormel Foods (HRL) neglected to inspire. The meat maker's income missed the mark concerning accord evaluations, while powerless direction for the current financial year didn't improve the situation either.

In addition, contenders like Tyson Foods (TSN) and Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) are forcefully looking to get more organizations to stretch, while Hormel's inconveniences may expand going ahead. In such circumstances, is Hormel a decent purchase at its 52-week high?

A couple of positives
