    Selling a Legacy: Food Companies Seek to Boot Their Dated Brands

    You’re not alone, and Big Food is taking note. As consumers increasingly lean toward fruits, vegetables, grains and meats unsullied by preservatives and sweeteners, food makers including J.M. Smucker Co., General Mills Inc. and Conagra Brands Inc. are looking to reshape portfolios to shed slow- or no-growth units. In July, Smucker said it was selling its U.S. baking unit, including Pillsbury, to Brynwood Partners to focus on innovation in segments such as coffee, peanut butter and snacks, many of which can be marketed as healthful.

    Why UBS Upgraded Conagra Brands Stock

    On October 8, UBS analyst Steven Strycula upgraded Conagra Brands (CAG) stock to “buy” from “neutral.” He increased the target price to $40 per share on Conagra Brands stock from $38, which reflects an upside potential of 15.4% based on the closing price of $34.65 on October 8. Strycula thinks that the synergies from the Pinnacle Foods acquisition, the improved volume, and the company’s improved mix with less discounting could drive long-term growth. Conagra Brands announced the Pinnacle Foods acquisition on June 27 for ~$10.9 billion, which includes Pinnacle Foods’ net debt of $2.7 billion.

    Conagra’s Fiscal Q1 2019 EPS Missed Estimates, Growth Slowed

    Conagra Brands (CAG) reported lower-than-expected earnings in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Its adjusted EPS of $0.47 rose 2.2% YoY (year-over-year) but fell short of analysts’ consensus estimate of $0.49.

    Interested in a Moat for Your Castle?

    Kraft Heinz sported a narrow moat until August 2018, and would not have been in the Wide Moat Focus Index to begin with. The Morningstar Wide Moat Focus Index, for instance, has outperformed the broad market by 3.65% annually through July 2018 since its inception in February 14, 2007. The idea of “buying good companies at a good price” is easy to understand in concept, and with funds following Morningstar’s moat index methodology, putting it into practice can be easier than managing it yourself.

    Why Consider Moat Stocks?

Morningstar’s moat-oriented index methodologies apply a consistent process to identifying companies with durable competitive advantages and assessing their value. With over 100 analysts globally helping to identify dominant players in different industries, perhaps the most powerful attribute of Morningstar’s process is the price-to-fair value metric.
