11:27 EDTCPB, CAG, KRFT, ULCampbell Soup falls after revenues miss, guidance cut
Shares of soup and convenience food maker Campbell Soup (CPB) are falling after the company reported mixed third quarter results and lowered its fiscal 2014 outlook. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Campbell Soup reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 62c and revenue of $1.97B, compared to expectations of 59c and $2.0B, respectively. The company forecast FY14 adjusted EPS at the low end of its previously issued $2.53-$2.58 range, compared to consensus of $2.53. Campbell now expects sales from continuing operations will grow approximately 3% in the current fiscal year, compared with the previous range of 4%-5%. FY14 consensus is $8.35B. Full-year growth in adjusted EBIT is expected to be at the low end of the previously forecast range of 4%-6%. The company cited a challenging consumer environment and harsh winter weather for the weak forecast. It said consumers are suffering from continued underemployment, rising fuel, home and healthcare costs, and that these factors are "significantly" affecting purchasing behavior. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Campbell Soup fell $1.13, or 2.5%, to $43.99 on heavy trading volume. Including today's pull back, the stock is down nearly 8% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the packaged foods space include ConAgra Foods (CAG), Kraft Foods (KRFT) and Unilever (UL) .
