I noticed the rating did not change, only the target price. Thus, these reiterations of buy with the price target change will never be reflected in Yahoo! Finance, except the target price will change (and remain unnoticed by most folks).
Thanks for the laugh.
Worldpoultry article today on chicken meat consumption in USA is very positive, both in home cooking and restaurants.
Also, with all the hoopla about avian flu, there are these positives for PPC:
1. Avian flu is "out of control" in Asia, including India.
2. Avian flu is crushing poultry in Africa with proposal today that $20 million be raised to address the issue via the World Food Program.
3. When you lose nearly 5 million layer hens to bird flu, you also lose the meat they add to the meat supply when their laying period ends (called "fowl"). The shortage in fowl availability impacts mainly ethic groups who prefer the stronger flavor & toughness good for specialty dishes and soups (also commercial soup manufacturers). This shortage of hens should last for about 18 months after which the layer population could recover (assuming no problems next year).
