Protein stock pullback on Sanderson comments overdone, says BMO Capital BMO Capital views yesterday's decline in Sanderson Farms (SAFM), Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) and Tyson Foods (TSN) as an overreaction to Sanderson's comments regarding breast prices falling to year-ago levels for the next four months.
