Smithfield Foods, Inc. Research Report

Shares of Smithfield Foods jumped 10 percent after the company crushed Wall
Street estimates. Smithfield Foods reported fiscal third quarter 2013 net
income of 58 cents per share, whereas analysts expected 51 cents per share.
The sharp increase in income was due to growth in its packaged meats business
and its international operations. Going forward, the company anticipates 2 to
3 percent growth in its packaged meat business in 2013, with increased market
share and broader distribution. Over the next several years, the company is
also turning to consumer marketing programs, product launches and capital
investments for growth. Last month, the company entered a joint venture with
Kansas City Sausage Company to grow its packaged meat business. The company
also announced its intention to supply ractopamine-free pork to Russia and
China. With all these growth opportunities ahead, one cannot blame Smithfield
Foods for being optimistic. The Full Research Report on Smithfield Foods, Inc.
