Campbell Soup Company's stock has been relatively stable due to its mature product line offering little growth. The snacks business has shown some promise, but overall, the company is deemed to have limited growth potential. However, the recent acquisition of Sovos Brands for $2.7 billion in cash has generated optimism, providing Campbell's with a growth engine amidst the stock's decline. The company's strong brand name and defensive nature are highlighted as strengths, but it is cautioned that major growth may not be on the horizon.

Consensus
Mixed
Valuation
Fair Value
DON'T BUY

Their product line is very mature and offers little growth. This has been a sideways stock. Their snacks business is doing well, but not a growth driver. Either the stock declines and the dividend rises, or they buy another company.

BUY ON WEAKNESS

Will buy Sovos Brands for $2.7 billion all cash. Makes sense, giving Campbell's a growth engine at a time when the stock is out of favour, down 22% YTD. Buy this dip.

BUY ON WEAKNESS

Strong performance lately.
Excellent brand name with mature assets.
Defensive name that won't see major growth.

BUY
Up 31% this year so far. They've always had strong brands. They had supply chain problems this year, but thankfully are in the past. They raised prices to offset shortages and won't lower prices now that supplies problems have ended. Last week they reported a monster earnings beat, 15% organic sales growth and a strong forecast. Looks very good for 2023.

BUY
He recommends packaged food stocks as safe havens if there's a recession. CPB is up 22% this year. They keep putting up good numbers and just reported a 14-cent earnings beat, higher than expected sales (15% organic growth vs. expected 10%), and they raised their full-year forecast. There's more room to run.

COMMENT
When investors fear the pandemic and a Fed-induced slowdown, the more conservative ones buy consumer staples. Staples have been beaten up this year, but today they rallied. Campbell's is up 8% so far this month, despite last week's mixed quarter. Yesterday, they held an investor day and unveiled very bullish long-term growth targets. Could this be the start of a larger move?

DON'T BUY
It reported this week, stating that it's struggling with raw costs and sales growth. The stock is cheap, but not cheap enough to buy, unless management can convince. He isn't holding his breath. They hold an investors' day on Tuesday.

COMMENT
It reports Wednesday. Unsteady soup sales and climbing costs could pressure the stock, like it has before.
food processing
BUY
Recently, they missed projections and cut their forecast, so they had execution issues, but still took more market share. Covid winners are unfairly pigeonholed as reopening losers. CPB still has value. Their costs are under control.
food processing
DON'T BUY
He likes management, but the pantry stocks have been disappointing. They report Wednesday. CPB has won over enough stay-at-homers with their snacks and it pays a 3.2% yield. Overall, though, he'll pass.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly When CPB last reported earnings in Sep, EPS of $0.63 exceeded expectations by 18%. The pandemic increased soup demand by 30% and gained them over 6 million new household buyers. As we head into the the next seasonal demand upswing we are recommending them as a TOP PICK, targeting $54. It pays a good dividend, backed by a 26% payout ratio. We would recommend a stop-loss at $38. Yield 2.90% (Analysts’ price target is $53.33)
food processing
BUY
Trades at 15x earnings, pays a 3% dividend yield and generates a huge amount of cash. The stock has been slumping during the pandemic, because it's not the kind of stock you buy in an accelerating economy. Recently it announced 18% sales growth, but the stock got slammed, partially because the company didn't offer guidance for 2021 (but so have many companies).
food processing
COMMENT

A lot of bond proxies, including staples, have been under pressure. If CPB can rise above its current trend channel, we'd see a new uptrend. That's a concern, because when things go great, then people don't need to buy staples. Also, if he sees CPB move higher and break its downtrend, then it would tell him that something big is happening, that portfolio managers are becoming cautious.
