The S&P 500 lost ground on Thursday as investors took profits in advance of Friday's jobs report, ending a four-day rally driven by rising economic sentiment. The Nasdaq joined the S&P 500 in negative territory, while the blue-chip Dow posted a nominal gain.
After this brief introduction, Mark Smucker, President and CEO, will give an overview of the quarter's results, and an update on our strategic initiatives. Tucker Marshall, CFO, will then provide detailed analysis of the financial results and our fiscal 2021 outlook.
While all three major indexes were modestly lower, they have shown remarkable resilience since their late March plunge, with the Nasdaq, the S&P 500 and the Dow now within 2%, 9% and 12% of their respective record highs reached in February. "From the S&P 500 Index peak on February 19 to the bear market lows March 23, stocks lost 33.9%," noted Ryan Detrick, senior market strategist for LPL Financial in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 rose past 6.6 million on Thursday, and California reported a rise in infections after weeks of slowing, raising concerns that the protests at the death of George Floyd, and the reopening of certain counties, are helping spread the illness.
The Nasdaq 100 index retreated from an intraday record high on Thursday, with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones indexes also slipping as a rally fueled by hopes of a post-coronavirus economic recovery fizzled out. Wall Street's main indexes had gained in early trading as U.S. weekly jobless claims fell below 2 million for the first time since mid-March, bolstering optimism around a pickup in business activity as economies reopened.
After seeing a "material benefit" to its sales as demand rose due to the COVID-19 pandemic, J.M. Smucker (NYSE: SJM) says it believes sales will comparatively decline over the next year. In reporting its fiscal fourth-quarter 2020 results Thursday, the company said it benefited from $185 million on incremental sales during the period that ended April 30 as consumers stocked up to stay at home. Smucker said it expects the decrease in comparable sales for its fiscal 2021 because of an estimated $120 million coronavirus-related reduction mostly due to what it expects will be "a significant and extended decline in the Company's Away From Home business."

(Bloomberg) -- Reporting big gains in sales and profit used to mean an all-but-guaranteed spot among the S&P 500’s top performers.But in this topsy-turvy earnings season, even record growth isn’t always enough to get investors excited. Just ask J.M. Smucker Co.The maker of Jif peanut butter, Folgers coffee and its namesake jelly on Thursday reported what it labeled “record-setting” sales and profit for the fourth quarter as stuck-at-home consumers snatched up its snacks and pet food. The company estimated that the coronavirus pandemic added $185 million in additional revenue during the period.Yet its shares fell as much as 4.5% in New York, the biggest intraday drop in more than two months. The company joined others, including Campbell Soup Co. and Colgate-Palmolive Co., that have fallen despite reporting extremely robust demand and sales amid the lockdown conditions.This illustrates how stock performance has been divorced from some of the traditional indicators of financial health while investors try to figure out how companies will fare once the pandemic passes and shopping patterns normalize.‘Material Benefit’J.M. Smucker didn’t give investors much confidence in its post-pandemic prospects on Thursday, saying sales will fall as much as 2% in the coming fiscal year. “The outbreak of Covid-19 had a material benefit to fiscal year 2020 results and has caused significant uncertainty for fiscal year 2021 projections,” the company said in a statement.Campbell also fell the most in more than two months on Wednesday despite projections that higher demand will endure.On the other hand, some companies are getting a lift when results that would be apocalyptic under normal circumstances aren’t quite as bad as anticipated. American Eagle Outfitters Inc. on Wednesday reported a 38% decline in sales and an operating loss of $358 million, while also halting its dividend.Its shares rose 15%.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
A rally in tech shares drove the Nasdaq index higher on Thursday, with weekly jobless claims dipping below 2 million for the first time since mid-March bolstering optimism around an economic rebound from the coronavirus-driven slump. "The market is due for a pause," said Christopher Grisanti, chief equity strategist at MAI Capital Management in Cleveland, Ohio.

U.S. stock indexes were set to open lower on Thursday as a rally fueled by optimism over an economic rebound from a coronavirus-led downturn ran out of steam even with weekly jobless claims dipping below 2 million for the first time since mid-March. Wall Street's main indexes have rebounded in the past few sessions, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq index now 1.4% away from surpassing an all-time closing high hit in February.
Smucker (SJM) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of 12.72% and 1.66%, respectively, for the quarter ended April 2020. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
J.M. Smucker Co. stock fell 2.3% in Thursday premarket trading after the food company gave weak full-year earnings guidance. Smucker reported fiscal fourth-quarter net income of $226.3 million, or $1.98 per share, up from $71.5 million, or 63 cents per share, for the same period last year. Adjusted EPS totaled $2.57, exceeding the $2.28 FactSet consensus. The company posted sales of $2.09 billion, up from $1.90 billion last year and ahead of the $2.04 FactSet consensus. The food company attributed the growth to demand related to COVID-19, and forecasts continued pandemic-related demand. "Looking ahead, we anticipate increased at-home consumption to continue during the beginning of our fiscal year 2021 - though at a more moderate rate as stock-up purchasing in the fourth quarter is not anticipated to reoccur, and significant declines for the away from home business are expected to persist throughout the year," said Mark Smucker, chief executive of the company, in a statement. Smucker expects full-year fiscal 2021 sales to fall 1% to 2% year-over-year, and adjusted EPS of $7.90 to $8.30. The FactSet consensus is for sales of $7.75 billion, suggesting a decline of 1.1%, and EPS of $8.46. Smucker attributes the sales decline to lapping the $185 million of incremental net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 and a $120 million reduction in the away from home business. Smucker stock has gained 10.1% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index is down 3.3% for the period.
