Campbell Soup Company Research Report

Campbell's is seen to be another food company which could be part of a
takeover bid after the recently completed $23 billion buyout of Heinz by
Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and 3g Capital last month, and is now
taking a look at its own cost structure. The company says it will expand to
higher-growth areas both in the US and abroad, and drive growth in its healthy
beverages and baked snacks businesses. In particular, the company is pursuing
external development opportunities in priority markets in Asia and Latin
America, to increase capabilities and build scale. In the past, Heinz
management also considered the buyout of Campbell, as indicated by Heinz chief
William Johnson. The Full Research Report on Campbell Soup Company - including

Unilever N.V. Research Report

Unilever grabbed headlines recently with British Prime Minister David
Cameron's visit to India, where he visited the company's Hindustan unit, where
he expressed his desire for India to open up trade further like how the UK did
with the Asian country in the past. Unilever then responded with the
announcement of a $65 million investment in its first Asian aerosol deodorant
manufacturing facility, which will complement two other investments in Asia. A
previously announced $92 million will be for making new homecare liquids and
distribution facilities in Thailand, while $98 million will be spent for
building a new home care factory and expanding existing manufacturing plants
in South Africa. The new plant in India will be phased over three years and
production capacity will gradually be scaled up to generate direct employment
for over 150 people and indirect employment for about 200 people. The Full

Ingredion Inc Research Report

Ingredion posted growth in its Q4 2012 results released last month, beating
analyst expectations on revenue and earnings per share. The company logged
revenue of $1.64 billion, up 6.3 percent year over year from $1.55 billion,
while earnings per share came in at $1.47, up 32 percent from $1.11 year over
year. In comparison, analysts expected revenue of $1.63 billion and earnings
of $1.42 per share. The company says the growth was brought on to by price
increases to cover higher raw material costs and foreign exchange headwinds,
volume improvement, and operating efficiencies. Looking ahead, Ingredion
expects further growth with their pricing strategies plus its prospects in
emerging markets and mix improvement strategy. The Full Research Report on

Boulder Brands Inc Research Report

Health food maker Boulder Brands saw it more than double after releasing its
Q4 2012 results, credited to its acquisition of Udi's Healthy Foods. Net
income jumped to $3.7 million or 6 cents per share from $1.6 million or 3
cents per share, while revenue jumped 35 percent to $113 million. Meanwhile,
analysts expected earnings at 5 cents per share and $111.1 million in revenue.
The company, previously known as Smart Balance, bought Udi's for $125 million
last year. Products from the acquired company as well as its Glutino and Earth
Balance brands saw its sales double, but its Smart Balance spreads fell 12
percent for the quarter. Meanwhile, Boulder Brands expects to report $450
million to $460 million in revenue in 2013, while analysts forecast $452.8
million, on average. The Full Research Boulder Brands Inc - including full

B&G Foods, Inc. Research Report

B&G Foods posted growth in revenue but lagged in earnings per share in its Q4
2012 results, with both numbers failing to reach estimates. Revenue came in at
$173.7 million, up 16 percent year over year from $150 million, while earnings
per share was at 18 cents, 31 percent lower than the same period last year's
26 cents per share. In comparison, analysts wanted revenue of $180.6 million
and earnings of 39 cents per share. However, these numbers would create
opportunities for small and mid-cap investors, as what Piper Jaffray believes.
The investment services firm says the company remains well-positioned to
execute an immediately accretive acquisition in the coming quarters, keeping
its "Overweight" rating on the shares. The Full Research Report on B&G Foods,
Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets -
is available to download free of charge at:
