USDA lowers 2016 red meat and poultry production forecast

The USDA, in its latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report lowered its forecast for total red meat and poultry production for 2016 from last month as slightly higher beef and pork production is more than offset by lower broiler production. For 2017, the total red meat and poultry product forecast was raised, primarily due to higher pork production. Publicly traded companies in the meat production space include Hormel Foods (HRL), Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), Sanderson Farms (SAFM) and Tyson Foods (TSN). Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wal-Mart (WMT) coverage assumed with an Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Edward Kelly saying he is encouraged by Wal-Mart's return to traffic growth against a deteriorating staples retail environment and its aggressive U.S. investments to solidify its position in an evolving industry. 2. Clorox (CLX) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities. 3. Comerica (CMA) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Ryan Nash saying he sees upside to Comerica's current recently announced strategic plan to improve pre-tax returns by $230M. 4. Hormel Foods (HRL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Edward Jones. 5. Micron (MU) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Cleveland Research with analyst Kevin Rottinghaus saying Micron's execution has improved and progress in DRAM and NAND fundamentals over the past 2-3 months is sustainable into 2017.

Hormel Foods added to US Focus List at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse added Hormel Foods (HRL) to the US Focus List, replacing Kellogg (K). The firm Investment Policy Committee said analyst Rob Moskow's FY17 above consensus estimate reflects his view that the Street underestimates earnings momentum, is best positioned to capitalize on increased demand for convenient protein products and deflationary meat cost trends, higher margins from its mix to value-added products, and high short interest that will dissipate. Moskow rates Hormel an Outperform with a $43 price target.

The company was also downgraded to Hold at Needham. 2. Monsanto (MON) downgraded to Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst Colin Isaac saying that while Bayer is likely to raise its $122 per share offer, it is far from certain that a mutually acceptable valuation will be agreed upon. 3. Sanderson Farms (SAFM) downgraded to Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Ken Goldman, who is increasingly concerned about the potential impact of La Nina on feed costs. 4. Workday (WDAY) downgraded to Underperform at Wedbush with analyst Steve Koenig saying his Q1 checks indicate softer implementation pipelines due to macro and competitive factors, and Oracle's (ORCL) aggressive discounting. 5. EMC (EMC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Jagdale lowered his price target for Tyson to $70 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. He keeps a Hold rating on Hormel Foods (HRL) with a reduced price target of $34 and Underperform rating on Sanderson with a price target of $60.

Tyson Foods selloff Friday a buying opportunity, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman recommends using Friday's weakness in shares of Tyson Foods as a buying opportunity. The complaint filed against chicken producers last month appears to have insufficient evidence at this time, Goldman tells investors in a research note. He expects Tyson to report "very strong" results over the next "quarter or two" and keeps the Neutral-rated shares on his firm's Focus List.
