    Can You Match the Famous Mascot to the Cereal?

    Companies often depend on a mascot to help build a brand. Look no further than the breakfast staple in your kitchen cabinet for proof. Cereal makers have relied on endearing mascots, from Tony the Tiger to Toucan Sam, for decades to attract consumers. And it works. Americans spent $8.5 billion on cold cereals over the past year.

    Selling a Legacy: Food Companies Seek to Boot Their Dated Brands

    You’re not alone, and Big Food is taking note. As consumers increasingly lean toward fruits, vegetables, grains and meats unsullied by preservatives and sweeteners, food makers including J.M. Smucker Co., General Mills Inc. and Conagra Brands Inc. are looking to reshape portfolios to shed slow- or no-growth units. In July, Smucker said it was selling its U.S. baking unit, including Pillsbury, to Brynwood Partners to focus on innovation in segments such as coffee, peanut butter and snacks, many of which can be marketed as healthful.

    America's Most Popular Breakfast Cereals (And the Stocks Behind Them)

    Breakfast is big business. Americans gobbled up $8.5 billion worth of ready-to-eat cereal over the past year, according to IRI, a market research firm. Just four companies - General Mills (GIS), Kellogg (K), Post Holdings (POST) and Quaker Foods, a division of PepsiCo (PEP) - collectively accounted for $7.3 billion of those sales. Although cereal sales have been stagnant of late - down 1.4% year-over-year - growing interest in cereal as a snack among younger consumers could goose demand. Market research firm Mintel found that 56% of millennials say they've eaten cereal as a snack at home, compared with just 32% of baby boomers. "While breakfast is the most common occasion for eating cereal and nearly universal across age groups, snacking on cereal may offer greater potential for reinvigorating category growth, especially among younger adults," says John Owen, an analyst with Mintel. So which cereal brands are Americans buying the most? Take a look at the list of the 19 most popular cereals in the U.S. to find out.

    Why UBS Upgraded Conagra Brands Stock

    On October 8, UBS analyst Steven Strycula upgraded Conagra Brands (CAG) stock to “buy” from “neutral.” He increased the target price to $40 per share on Conagra Brands stock from $38, which reflects an upside potential of 15.4% based on the closing price of $34.65 on October 8. Strycula thinks that the synergies from the Pinnacle Foods acquisition, the improved volume, and the company’s improved mix with less discounting could drive long-term growth. Conagra Brands announced the Pinnacle Foods acquisition on June 27 for ~$10.9 billion, which includes Pinnacle Foods’ net debt of $2.7 billion.

    Conagra Brands (CAG) reported lower-than-expected earnings in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Its adjusted EPS of $0.47 rose 2.2% YoY (year-over-year) but fell short of analysts’ consensus estimate of $0.49. Soft volumes, weak margins, and a tough YoY comparison adversely impacted the company’s earnings growth rate.

    [$$] Food Executives Look to Better Integrate Smaller Brands

    Big food companies say they are learning how to better integrate into their sprawling businesses the smaller brands they are relying on to drive sales growth. Hershey Co., for instance, kept the headquarters of Amplify Snack Brands in Austin, Texas, after it acquired the SkinnyPop popcorn maker last year. Now Amplify’s offices will be Hershey’s hub for a growing portfolio of smaller brands, including Pirate’s Booty cheese puffs after that acquisition is completed. Hershey Chief Executive Michele Buck said food companies have to be careful about tinkering with beloved brands to make them healthier.

    Kraft Heinz sported a narrow moat until August 2018, and would not have been in the Wide Moat Focus Index to begin with. The Morningstar Wide Moat Focus Index, for instance, has outperformed the broad market by 3.65% annually through July 2018 since its inception in February 14, 2007. The idea of “buying good companies at a good price” is easy to understand in concept, and with funds following Morningstar’s moat index methodology, putting it into practice can be easier than managing it yourself.
