    Analysts Got Ahead of Themselves. This was a Good Quarter Where They Got Hurt By One Time Storm Sandy

    For Q4 they were estimating 30% yr/yr EPS growth and 20% Revenue Growth. These are pretty HUGE figures for a food company !!!

    Q4 Actual Results Were Quite Good:

    Adj. EPS Growth +6.7%
    Rev Growth +15.8%
    Adj. EBITDA +20.0%

    Full Year 2012 vs 2011 Figures:

    Adj. Dil. EPS Growth +23.9%
    Rev Growth +16.5%
    Adj. EBITDA Growth +28.9%

    They estimate that approx. 1/3 to 1/2 of their Sales Volume decline (which was LESS than what was experienced by the industry as a whole) was due to Superstorm Sandy, which caused many supermarkets to close and even caused their main office to be shut down for 9 days of the quarter.
