+ Watch CALM
on My Watchlist
The Company is in the business of producing, grading, packaging, marketing and distribution of shell eggs.
Over the last few years this egg distribution consolidator has been very consistent even with the occasional blip via bird virus. It has solid dividends & holds its value over all kinds of market volatility.
Eggs. This company brings us eggs. A lot of things to like in this company, I think. ROA is over 30% in the TTM and in the last 10 years averaged about 13.3% ROA. The company has a low (0.03) debt/equity ratio and consequently high ROE (over 40% currently). EPS growth over the last 5 yrs has been just over 18% and has a P/E of 6.45. It has a pretty good looking PEG ratio and pays a over a 6% dividend. We'll see if it stays there, but it's book value has been on the rise in the last 10 years. It also sells under the brand names of Egg-Land's Best and Farmhouse. The best time to buy this stock was a few years ago, but I think it'll continue to climb.
CALM simply can not repeat its past quarterly performance (unless bird flu reemerges). Already two months of below trend prices for the three month quarter.Long run winner...short run...probably not

High relative strength.
Great FCF, low debt with and intrinsic value of $91 per share with a 25% margin of safety!!
Wall Street made a very bad call in selling off Cal-Maine on a large, but ultimately insignificant "earnings miss" Monday. Earnings nonetheless quintupled year over year, and analysts foresee further strong growth in the years ahead. While FCF at CALM leaves something to be desired, I see strong tailwinds behind this hen husbander. Thumbs up.
I look for the market to take a downturn soon, so I am looking at investments that are recession proof and eggs are one of those products. This company seems to be well managed and provides a dividend.
Smaller cap company that makes a lot of money selling eggs. Very nice ROIC and it looks very cheap. Dividend is nice as well.
This one has been consistently passing stock screens based on Buffett & O'Shaughnessy Growth + Value + Momentum criteria (strong long-term EPS growth and Return on Equity, Net & Operating margins > industry averages, low Price/Sales, relative price strength over the year in top decile). Also, very little debt (as measured by Debt/Equity and Debt/Working Capital ratios) and lots of cash.Add in a 2.2% annual dividend yield, a solid family-run business with a decades-long price-performance record -- and hey, it's eggs. Everybody -- almost -- likes eggs! A business I can understand, and at an unfairly beaten-down price in late 2014 (I hope). We'll see if I'm right; I use my real money in this portfolio!
Largest producer of eggs and great performance over a long period of time. They're very efficient with their cash and operate with low levels of debt. A bit pricey at its current valuation but should be a safe place to park some extra cash over the next decade.I don't see the egg production business experiencing any major headwinds or major disruption for the time being.Outperform - 5 years
Protein is what people know to eat. Eggs are good for you.
The egg man.
This company is the market leader in the U.S. egg business.
I first bought this dividend paying egg stock back in 2007. I intend to hold onto it for at least another 5-7 years.
Eggs-egg whites have all the essential nutrients to make baby chickens(life). I like where this companies heads at, offering alternative methods for the hippy vegans and conducting food research. There is a crisis occuring overseas I expect to see Turf overtake the Surf on this food. Both long term and short, but I like to see my results quick fast and in a hurry. Keep foolin' fools. If you see that %K make a knifepoint you best be hoppin back in for a few points. Expect strong continuation. Also, I believe there may be a purposeful mishap with the dividend date being inaccurate.
I love eggs!
