+ Watch BGS
on My Watchlist
The Company manufactures, sells and distributes a portfolio of shelf-stable food products.
Lesser known brands with sensible prospects and less debt than expected given their acquisition strategy.
Strong portfolio of consumer staples. Growth trajectory and yield better than most utilities.
EPS Ranking 93
Cheap packaged food... why not
A boring food stock with great brand names. Very little European exposure.
Scruffy believes in this company.
B&G Foods has a great dividend, which the company have increased 3-times in the past 14-months. Their strategy of acquiring smaller, but high-margin brands from other companies has proven very successful for B&G. Brands like Cream of Wheat, acquired from Kraft Foods. Their most recent acquisition was a number of brands from Unilever, including the Mrs. Dash seasoning and marinades products.Recently, B&G Foods has begun dipping their toes into non-food products. In addition to the acquisition of some of Unilever's food products, B&G acquired the Static Guard and Kleen Guard brands from Unilever. And earlier this month, B&G formed a strategic alliance with global consumer products company, Jarden Corporation.
good yield plus super products that don't grow old.
Consumer staples are my favorite buy. The flatter the global economy becomes, the greater number of people who will have income for inexpensive luxuries and convenient food products. There are growth opportunities in this industry.
Caps price 16.80The dividend yield is 5%. That wouldn't be enough for me to add this company, but they were on fire before the mini-crash. They are introducing healthier food products like the Ortega whole wheat taco shell. That new product has been a good one for them. Transportation costs hurt them, but gas prices are lower now and should help the next quarter. They produced $22 million in cash flow for the first six months of the year. And made $1.82 per share in cash flow in 2010. TTM cash flow is $71 million or $1.46 per share giving them a cash flow yield of 8.7%. Very cheap.
I figure canned foods is a good business to be in in this economy and I figure dividend will make this stock more attractive as yield from other investment options drop.
reasonably priced growth with great dividend
I know today was a down day because of the debt ceiling problem. But why this company was down so much is a mystery to me. Good balance sheet. Pretty good margins. Good dividend yielding 4.53%.
I've been holding this for a while in my real portfolio and the dividend is attractive and stock performance has been good
B&G Foods has a diversified grouping of products marketing in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. Everything from oatmeal to salsa and peppers. ROE is 19.5% currently, while the EPS growth Y/Y is 55% FY 2010. Div of 4.5%. The one problem I see is Debt/Cap of 65% which is well above the industry avg.
It is being added to the S&P 600 index.
5 STAR, Small-cap, dividend payer
great breadth of solid brands, benefit from cross-marketing and good shelf space and distribution
Food company with known brands like Cream of Wheat, Ortega and many others at a low price with near 7% dividends. I am loading up on this stock hoping for long and sustained relative safe growth.
Solid management, came out of the downturn with a better balance sheet than it started. Made all the right moves eliminating and reducing debt. Looking for opportunities to add new lines.
