    10 billion $ debt!! Little cash sinking fast...

    reason...the folly of the ralcorp deal, the failure to innovate new successful products, a breakdown in interdepartmental communications, the seeming flop of the PF Chang/Bertolli buy, weak leadership.

    if you read the latest news release setting us up for a bad-news june 26th report--and leading to a sharp stock price decline--you will note that the CEO admits it will be longer than a year before the mess at the private brands line may be fixed. who's responsible--?? Why the terrible results this year?? the CEO doesnt take responsibility, you never hear the top guys say we screwed up, admit they did not plan and run successful programs. Oh no.

    Coconut oil Pam spray is stupid

    PAM Coconut makes no marketing sense to me. have seen no ads or heard no talk of its benefits. Does this appear to anybody to be a potential big money maker?? The regular PAM was successful--but is getting long in tooth and faced much stronger competition in recent years. CAG doesnt report the results of individual products--Pam, Orville, Peter Pan, Wolfs, etc--so it''s impossible to estimate.

    the CHEF seems to fill a lot shelf space at retailers. Must have at least a good following. Wonder why the present problems Cag is having with the old Chef B?

    RAL is NOT the future. CAG bought to win over folks looking for bargain prices at the market. Now the biggest food companies have reduced their prices to compete with private label brands. So the consumer can buy big-name brands now at low prices to compete with CAG. Its no picnic out there!

    you are right on. Conagra has not managed to gain a higher rank in he food industry--has not beat out any of its rivals in momentum. It is losing its competitiveness. The move to reduce administrative offices is long overdue, The CEO has had too many of its former Pepsi associates on board. When have we last heard of any breakhrough new products? was it Healthy Choice decades ago??

  • the company's scary new release containing bad news about earnings fall--is confusing to the commonfolks.
    what in the devil is meant by "non-cash impairment". All we ask as shareowners is straight talk ---this is what we earned, this is what we spent.....and explain in short easily understood language --why!!! Please dont try to pull the wool over our eyes---add honey to bad dish. We have heard several times in recent years how Management thinks results will show good improvement over the next 2-3 years--only to face disappointment. Now, I see, the Private Brand fiasco wont be fixed for some years ahead. The results are even worse than painted by the CEO's news release. Hope the Directors will not just sit on their hands.

  • stock way way down early says results failed to live up to expectations. Biggest one day loss--so far in a long time. All you guys who've bragged about your Cag stock performance can start biting your nails or head for the exits. Cag is famous in recent years for "not living up to expectations." May i repeat here that the Ralcorp deal was a bust. The Board of Directors should look long and hard at top management for the lack of good strategy and execution.

    hope you're right---where is all that new profit coming from? lots lately about layoffs being done around CAG. Dont think sales/earnigs have been that good this year, for Cag and many rivals. The Hillshire merger did provide a little bump up. Cag was absent from merger far

    Medallion Foods sold

    are you kidding? Cag does not have the "best suite of products" a dumb idea. Cag is not ever mentioned in all the merger//buyout talks, and its products generally are 3rd or 4th tier. It did pull off a nice deal in Ardent Mills. The company has lagged its main rivals for many years in stock evaluation--ie. Tyson, Hormel, Gen. mills, heinz, nestle, etc.

    Cag's new lines of "grilled" frozen meals is a disappointment to me. The products are almost i as dentical in taste and product ID as the previous line. No creativity or different appeal to attracter wider customer support. I"ve said before the "new product" creators at CAG should go back to the drawing board. And what's with all the broccoli content--most have that ugly vegetable in them. Really most guys HATE broccoli.

    i've been leery of this purchase...both PF Chang and Bertolli. felt it was ill advised to spend so big on trifling products. i check therm out at the store ---and customer buys have been quite dismal. another example of overpaying for middle-brow foods. repeat...Çag needs to be more involved in making saucy, tangy foods which people today seem to enjoy--more mexican, south american flavors. i feel Cag products lack zip and special tastes. lot of products taste the same or little difference.

  • burkepaul26 by burkepaul26 May 3, 2014 3:52 AM Flag

    cag hasnt any momentum ...Tyson has eaten its lunch in recent times. The big food makers generally are lagging. cag needs to make more tangy goof tasting products to appeal to immigrants from south america. cant think of any spicy food product offered by cag to these growing numbers.
