ConAgra sees accretive acquisitions accelerating growth

In slides for its Investor Day meeting, ConAgra Brands stated that it will follow a "disciplined approach" to evaluating M&A targets, weighing both strategic fit and financial fit, and will follow a "similar set of criteria" for divestitures. In terms of the "cadence" of its transformation, ConAgra said it will "reset" the top-line in FY16/17, "improve" the top-line in FY18 and "accelerate growth" in FY19/20, while expanding margins in all of the time periods. The company also stated that its $300M efficiency plan is "on track" and noted that it reduced approximately 1,500 positions in FY16 after having reduced approximately 450 positions in FY15.

Overweight
ConAgra risk/reward attractive ahead of Investor Day, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Grainger said ConAgra risk/reward is still attractive ahead of the upcoming Investor Days despite recent outperformance. The analyst expects management to set expectations for further cost savings that support a further re-rating. Grainger expects pro forma earnings will likely imply modest dilution but sees the risk of a more substantial negative revision as unlikely. He sees multiple paths to value creation including its ability to lever up for M&A, selective divestitures, and potential for renewed focus on Lamb Weston. The analyst rates ConAgra an Overweight with a $53 price target.
