    Sanderson Farms stock rises after sales beat

    Sanderson Farms Inc. shares rose 3.2% in Thursday premarket trading after the chicken producer reported fourth-quarter sales that beat expectations. Net loss for the quarter was $22.9 million, or $1.05 per share, after a loss of $43.2 million, or $1.95 per share, last year. Sales of $906.5 million were up from $798.1 million in 2018. The FactSet consensus was for a loss of $1.18 per share and sales of $888.0 million. "The fourth quarter marked the end of the second fiscal year in a row during which market prices for boneless breast meat produced at our plants that process a larger bird for food service customers fell to historically low levels after Labor Day," said Joe F. Sanderson, Jr., chief executive officer of Sanderson Farms. "The protein deficit caused by African swine fever in China and other countries, recently well-publicized chicken sandwich features at quick-serve restaurants, and expected higher retail pork and beef prices should all support stronger poultry markets as we move into 2020." Sanderson Farms stock has soared 73.4% over the past year while the S&P 500 index is up 27.3% for the period.

    Sanderson Farms stock soars in active trading after report China lifting ban on U.S. poultry

    Shares of Sanderson Farms Inc. shot up 13% in active morning trading Monday, which puts the chicken processing company's stock on track for the best one-day performance in nearly 11 years, after Reuters reported late Friday that China will lift a ban on U.S. poultry as part of a partial trade deal. Trading volume topped 550,000 shares, already well above the full-day average of about 320,000 shares. The stocks of other companies in the chicken business also rose, with Tyson Foods Inc. up 3.2% and Pilgrim's Pride Corp. climbing 5.2%. "While any agreement still needs to be finalized, we view this as a clear positive for the U.S. poultry industry...as a lift of the import ban would provide a significant export market for U.S. producers and could provide support to U.S. chicken prices," analyst Peter Galbo and Bank of America Merrill Lynch wrote in a note to clients. He said the lifting of the ban one one of four scenarios in which poultry producers could benefit from African Swine Fever (ASF) occurring in China, which led to theculling of millions of hogs, as consumers may switch consumption to chicken from pork. Stephens Inc.'s Ben Bienvenu said that while the report of the ban being lifted is a "clear positive" for all three chicken processors, "Sanderson has the most quantifiable benefit given the company's robust disclosures detailed in its filings." The stock has soared 53.1% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 21.3%.
