Hormel Foods released their earnings report for the 3rd Quarter before the market opened this morning and people weren’t pleased, to say the least. The stock immediately dropped about 6%, creating a great level to start or add to a position.
Revenue for Q3 came in at $2.21 billion, a 3.9% decrease from the same time last year and $30 million less than expected by analysts. Hormel also announced a $425 million acquisition of Fontanini Italian Meats & Sausages.
Dividend Yield: 1.98%. Total Forward Dividends: $668.07
