Tyson Foods weakness an overreaction, says BMO Capital After Tyson Foods reported weaker than expected Q2 results, BMO Capital thinks the miss was caused by a temporary shortfall in beef and pork. The firm believes that the company's earnings power is being underestimated, as it is on track to generate normal margins across each of its segments in FY2014. BMO Capital keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
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. BMO notes that breast prices always dip in the fall. Following Sanderson's investor day, BMO said it sees a greater probability of chicken margins remaining at near-record levels in 2015. It keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
