Campbell Soup reports Q3 adjusted EPS 59c, consensus 64c

Reports Q3 revenue $1.85B, consensus $1.87B. Denise Morrison, Campbell's President and CEO, said, "While organic sales declined 1 percent in the quarter, the team performed well in a difficult environment, gaining market share in many of our categories and continuing to execute our cost savings program. This was a challenging quarter across the food industry as top-line growth remained scarce, especially in center store categories. The industry, including Campbell, experienced significant consumption declines early in the calendar year. These industry trends coincided with weak consumer spending, which was at its lowest growth rate since 2009. While we rebounded with sales growth in March and April, we were unable to offset the earlier declines. In this context, Campbell delivered competitive performance. A bright spot in the quarter was our Global Biscuits and Snacks division, which delivered top-line and double-digit bottom-line growth. Looking ahead as we finish the fiscal year, we expect Global Biscuits and Snacks to maintain its positive momentum, and we will also be cycling the C-Fresh protein drink recall from last year. We are adjusting our fiscal 2017 guidance, reflecting our performance in the quarter, the difficult operating environment and our outlook for the remainder of the year. We lowered our sales outlook by one percentage point to a range of -1 to 0 percent. We raised our expectations for adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS, increasing the low end of both ranges to 2 to 4 percent and 3 to 5 percent, respectively. Despite the challenges on the top line, we expect that we will be able to offset the impact of lower sales with our ongoing cost-savings efforts, which are ahead of our expectations for the fiscal year."

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) downgraded to Market Perform at BMO Capital. 2. HubSpot (HUBS) downgraded to Outperform from Strong Buy at Raymond James analyst Terry Tilman saying shares have significantly outperformed year-to-date and recommends taking some profits. 3. MEDNAX (MD) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird analyst Whit Mayo citing a balanced risk/reward, weak organic growth, its sector high historical and relative EBITDA valuation, and a current setup that appears to be reliant on M&A. 4. Cracker Barrel (CBRL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying he expects customer traffic to remain weak and same-store sales growth to decelerate over the next several quarters. 5. Conagra Brands (CAG), Kellogg (K), J.M. Smucker (SJM), General Mills (GIS), and Campbell Soup (CPB) were downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Bernstein.

U.S. food companies downgraded to Underperform at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Alexia Howard downgraded General Mills (GIS), Kellogg (K), J.M. Smucker (SJM), Conagra Brands (CAG), and Campbell Soup (CPB) to Underperform from Market Perform. As reasons for the downgrades, Howard cited the companies' deteriorating revenue trends and her belief that any takeover premiums for the companies " are unlikely to be particularly high." She adds that activist investors probably won't get involved in the stocks while they are trading at such high valuations. Finally, the analyst believes that the companies are being hurt by consumers' desire for fresher foods and unfavorable shelf space trends at retailers. General Mills target to $52 from $61, Campbell target to $54 from $61, J.M. Smucker target to $130 from $147, Kellogg target to $69 from $83, Conagra target remains $36.
