  • 3 Dividend Stock Picks for Your Portfolio

    By Hussain Asghar - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: GIS, K, KRFT

    The consumer-defensive industry sells relatively low-priced products such as food, beverages, and personal hygiene products that consumers use in daily life. The demand for these products does not change with economic variability because people would not stop purchasing food and beverages despite the recession and slow economic growth. That’s why the consumer-defensive industry has outperformed the S&P 500 as a whole this year to date. Another reason to more »

  • Post-Split, Kraft Foods Continues to Shuffle Brands

    By Mike Thiessen - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: KRFT, MDLZ, NSRGY

    Less than a year after its blockbuster split with now-independent Mondelez International (NASDAQ: MDLZ), Kraft Foods (NASDAQ: KRFT) has announced plans to separate its already-truncated roster of brands into two distinct divisions. Although the internal split technically occurred in early July, its impacts continues to be felt throughout the company and beyond. It is entirely possible that this move will set up a future spin-off that sees Kraft Foods split more »

  • Pinnacle Foods Doesn't Look Attractive

    By Piyush Arora - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: KRFT, PF, UL

    More often than not, investing community considers IPOs as one-time opportunities to lock-in stellar returns. People often cite the exponential growth of successful IPOs, but seldom do they recall the failures of bust IPOs. I believe that Pinnacle Foods (NYSE: PF) is one such case, as it seems to be living the hype of a fresh IPO, with lofty valuations, but limited growth prospects.

  • Is Weight Watchers Oversold?

    By Jacob Steinberg - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: GIS, KRFT, WTW

    Weight Watchers (NYSE: WTW) produces weight-loss products, solutions, and services. On Friday, the company's shares sold off in high volume and the stock fell below $40 for the first time in years. Basically, all its gains for the last three years were erased in one day.

    The company generated $465 million in revenue and $1.39 per share in earnings this last quarter. It had to take a $20 more »

  • Eat Up These Companies!

    By Jacob Norte - August 3, 2013 | Tickers: KO, CAG, GIS, KRFT

    I can remember this last semester around finals time like a bad nightmare. Graveyard and swing shifts at the library, countless pots of coffee, cases of red bull, lots of No-Doz and the occasional Adderall upper. I didn't sleep for four days. Within that train wreck of a time was a full 18 units of pages upon pages of writing on some subject or another and a whole lot more »

  • Are These Food Giants Better Together?

    By Reuben Brewer - August 2, 2013 | Tickers: KRFT, MDLZ, PEP

    Nelson Peltz, manager of the Trian hedge fund, publicly called for PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP) to buy Mondelez International (NASDAQ: MDLZ) at New York's Delivering Alpha conference. It's an interesting idea, but would the combination work?

    The Players

    PepsiCo is probably best known for its namesake soda, but it is also one of the largest salty snack makers in the world via its Frito Lay line of products. It more »

  • 3 Packaged Foods Stocks for Your Income Portfolio

    By Victor Selva - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: GIS, K, KRFT

    The Consumer Defensive sector offers plenty of opportunities for dividend-seeking investors. Characterized by low volatility in its earnings and quite predictable growth paths, this is a choice for the risk-averse. The packaged foods industry, in particular, is one of the most predictable, while at the same time committed with sustainable growth and dividend payouts. Within this segment, I will look into three behemoths: General Mills (NYSE: GIS), Kraft (NASDAQ: KRFTmore »)

  • It’s better to be safe than sorry

    By Nitin Agarwal - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: KRFT, PG, UN

    Safe Harbour

    “It’s better to be safe than sorry”. When we consider the above phrase, particularly during the times of market uncertainly, we consider the stocks of the FMCG companies as the safest bet. Since, the FMCG industry is itself highly saturated - with presence of players like Nestle (OTC: NSRGY), Kraft (NASDAQ: KRFT), Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG), Unilever (NYSE: UN) among others; it’s sometimes becomes difficult for the more »

    By Chris Hodge - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: CALM, KRFT, UL

    Profit is the life of a business, and the following companies are carrying solid profit margins. But is that a good enough reason to make them a part of your portfolio? Let's take a good look at a few companies that have reasonably good margins to see if they have any other reasons to buy them... or if they're really value traps in disguise.

    By siraj sarwar - July 19, 2013 | Tickers: GIS, K, KRFT

    Kraft Food Group (NASDAQ: KRFT) is one of the best companies operating in the packaged food industry. The industry is very price competitive. It is tough for companies operating in this industry to achieve both top and bottom line performance.

  • Trends That Give Kraft Foods a Buy Rating

    By Kiran Gulati - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: CAG, KRFT, SLE

    The improving employment data supports the view that the U.S. economy is gradually coming out of the economic crises. This will eventually result in increased consumption, contributing heavily towards higher consumer spending on food items both at home and away.

    As disposable income levels increase, I believe investors will witness growth in all food categories, particularly in refrigerated meals. Nonetheless, it must be noted, the overall consumption level at more »

  • Which of These Food Companies Is Going Strong?

    By tarun bachhawat - July 11, 2013 | Tickers: CAG, KRFT, MDLZ

    ConAgra Foods' (NYSE: CAG) share price has risen 34% in the last year, and nearly 6% on the day the company reported its fourth-quarter earnings recently. The company’s acquisition of Ralcorp seems to be a boon for both the top line and bottom line. Let’s delve deeper to analyze how good an investment it is.

  • Celebrate America With These Four Stocks

    By Ryan Palmer - July 11, 2013 | Tickers: JAH, KRFT, TAP

    It has been over 237 years since our country declared independence, although the day we celebrate was not actually the day America decided it would be independent.

    On July 2, 1776, the Second Continental Congress voted to officially accept American hero Richard Henry Lee's resolution to establish independence from Great Britain. Two days later, on July 4, congress officially approved a statement outlining the reasons behind the decision. Primarily more »

  • Coffee’s Curse

    By Joshua Sauer - July 10, 2013 | Tickers: DNKN, SJM, KRFT, MCD, SBUX

    “Tall, Grande or Venti?” the barista asked with a smile. After taking a moment to contemplate how long my day would be, I decided upon a Venti. I removed three dollars and change from my pocket, and placed it on the counter. Thank you, Starbucks. Today will be a good day.

    Coffee is a morning institution among working adults. The average price for a cup of brewed coffee is $1 more »

  • Is Starbucks a Buy?

    By Phillip Woolgar - July 10, 2013 | Tickers: KRFT, MCD, SBUX

    Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) is looking more and more like it will repeat history and continue its trend to a higher share price.

    The year so far has been weak for what the coffee shop is used to, with the share price climbing about 23% so far this year, compared to the S&P 500's 16% growth. 

    The increase in price at Starbucks might look impressive, but considering the stock more »

  • A review of the current US Food Market

    By patricio kehoe - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: CAG, KRFT, SLE

    The US food markets sector is mature and competitive, yet the processed food industry is facing low growth rates and high energy costs (electricity and fuel). Nonetheless, there are still opportunities for companies that make acquisitions, cost reduction programs or differentiation strategies. We expect volumes in the next future to look better than they have in the past year due to the modest signals of recovery in the US economy more »

  • This Beverage Giant Is Still the One for You!

    By Matthew Frankel - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: KO, KRFT, PEP

    I am criticized often among my investor friends for advocating that most of a long-term portfolio should be filled with what they refer to as “boring” stocks. It is my goal to make people understand that sometimes these companies that are widely thought of as boring can significantly outperform the market over the long run. For example, I recently wrote an article about Johnson & Johnson in which I showed how more »
