Why Trade Tyson Foods?
Reason 1: Increasing Inflation
With the market being stimulated and pumped wit liquidity, most economic sectors started recovering, while the unemployment rate got stabilized, and the stock markets hit new record highs. Together with this, the inflation increased, too. On May 12, the US inflation report came out, which said the prices had gone up by 4.20% YoY in April, compared to 2.60% YoY in March. Meanwhile, the MoM figures came at 0.80% against 0.60%, respectively. Overall, this is a record high since 2008, the Fed target being just 2%.
The current situation may be beneficial for agricultural and food processing companies, as the rising prices for raw products will be paid by the consumers, who will still maintain a high demand for the essential goods. As a meat processor, Tyson Foods is of course among such companies.
Reason 2: More Production
Tyler Foods is going to expand its production and business in general, which may also boost its value. As such, the company is planning to open new poultry processing facilities in China, Thailand, and the Netherlands, with an overall capacity of around 100,000 tons. This may help Tyler Foods maintain an even better position in the meat market. The new facilities are expected to produce ready to market poultry.
Yet, the geographic expansion is only a part of the overall strategy, which also includes the increase of the existing production in Asia, test soy meat production, etc. With soy meat market having a very good potential, this may also boost Tyler Foods' value. The company well understands that this sector is not to be ignored, and already launched new product lines, including Raised & Rooted. The soy meat by Tyson Foods is already being sold in 5,000 retail stores in the US.
The overall successful strategy may have a great midterm impact on the company's value and stock price.
Reason 3: Sales of Pet Food Brands
Tyson Foods sold Nudges, Top Chews, and True Chews pet food brands to General Mills, Inc. at $1.20B, in cash. This is positive news, as the company got rid of non-core assets and received more liquid funds to invest into its core business.
Reason 4: Positive Financial Performance
In May, Tyson Foods released its Q2 financial report, which exceeded expectations. As such, the earnings reached $11.30B, having increased by 3.80% compared to Q2 2020, while the operating margin was at 6.30% against 4.70%, YoY, and the profit margin, at 4.20% vs 3.50%. Meanwhile, the EPS rose from $0.80 to $1.34.
With a stable financial position, Tyson Foods has $11.30B of debt against $2.40B in liquid cash. The Net Debt/EBITDA and Interest Coverage are at 2.00x and 6.60x, respectively, which means the debt is just moderate. The operating cash flow is stable, too, and amounted to $1.35B in the first months of 2021, meaning there are no liquidity issues. Finally, the dividend yield is 2.21%, per annum.
During the latest meeting, Tyson Foods management raised the earnings expectations from $42B-$44B to $44B-$46B, a piece of quite positive news as well.
