  • Pilgrim's Pride sees chicken demand outpacing production
    2/13/15 - DJNF
    By Jacob Bunge
    Pilgrim's Pride Corp. expects a boom in the U.S. chicken industry to go on as restaurants' and grocery stores' demand for poultry outpaces meatpackers' efforts to boost production.
    •Recent capacity reductions by rival poultry processors have helped curb an anticipated increase in U.S. chicken production, Pilgrim's officials said, as food-service clients clamor for nuggets, patties and rotisserie chickens.
    "On the demand side, it looks very favorable this year," said Bill Lovette, chief executive of Pilgrim's, the second-largest U.S. chicken processor by sales, on a conference call Thursday discussing fourth-quarter earnings.
    •Pilgrim's (PPC) reported after markets closed Wednesday that its fourth-quarter earnings rose 17%. But its revenue of $2.11 billion came in 4.5% below analysts' expectations, disappointing investors. Pilgrim's shares recently were down 5% after falling as much as 9.4% earlier in the day.

    Analysts have anticipated growing profits and sales among U.S. poultry processors. Back-to-back bumper U.S. corn and soybean crops have cut the price of feed, which are among the biggest costs for poultry producers, while constrained supplies of beef and pork have made chicken attractive to restaurants and a better value in grocery stores.

  • According to the BLS, “The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) declined 0.4 percent in December on a seasonally adjusted basis. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 0.8 percent before seasonal adjustment.”

    “The gasoline index continued to fall sharply, declining 9.4 percent and leading to the decrease in the seasonally adjusted all items index,” said the BLS.

    “The fuel oil index also fell sharply, and the energy index posted its largest one-month decline since December 2008, although the indexes for natural gas and for electricity both increased,” said the BLS.

    “The food index rose 0.3 percent in December after a 0.2 percent increase in November,” stated the BLS. “The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs increased 0.3 percent as the index for beef and veal continued to rise, advancing 0.7 percent.”

  • 1/26/15--9:34 EST - No. 2 US chicken processor Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) bounces back toward last month's high on last night's announcement it will pay a $1.5B, or $5.77/share, special dividend next month--3/4 of which will go to majority owner JBS (JBSS3.BR, JBSAY). That puts to use cash which built up amid M&A efforts, but PPC lost out on its effort to buy Jimmy Dean parent Hillshire last spring to poultry rival Tyson (TSN). PPC climbs 7.8% to $34 while 8.2% JBSS3.BR is up 4.2% in Sao Paulo after sliding 17% within the past month.
