Earnings also deteriorated sharply from the year-ago level of 97 cents. The year-over-year decline in earnings was due to lower profit as a result of increased input costs. Inside the Headline Numbers Total revenue in the quarter [...]
|12/27/11||CALM (Samurai Trader)|
There was only one stock I know of that reported this morning, and that was CALM. This was a leading stock a couple of years ago, fell on somne hard times, but may be in the midst of a comeback. Today;s breakout attempt cam on low relative volume, and the close in the lower half of the day's range indicates a lot of profit taking. The price relative line here is not terribly impressive, indicating this was not a very strong stock, and was a pretty good indication the breakout attempt would fail.

|3/29/10||CALM (Samurai Trader)|
If a black candle on an earnings breakout is bad, a red candle is armaggedon. CALM was forming a base, but the right side went over the breakout point and it never formed a handle. One thing that tells me is that lotto fever has a lot of traders trying to anticipate earnings breakouts, a very risky proposition. A flood of orders at the open gapped this up big, and it spent the rest of the day selling off. The lesson here is don't try to anticipate earnings, and don't chase an opening gap.
|12/28/09||CALM (Samurai Trader)|
CALM was an early leader back in March, but has since hit som hard times with dropping earnings. Even today's numbers, despite beating estimates, weren't impressive, as evidenced by the price action. It did get a decent rise and boost in volume at the open, but it was intraday that it was run up, not typical for an earnings breakout. The price relative is weak, but CMF has been climbing since this pulled back to the 200dma. It's probably extended here.
|7/27/09||Cal-Maine misses big, trading down 9% (CALM) (AlphaNinja)|
AlphaNinja - Shell egg producer Cal-Maine (CALM) reported earnings of 43cents per share, far below the consensus estimate of $1.13. Reduced shell egg pricing was partially offset by lower feed costs, but not enough to prevent a huge decline in gross margin, operating income, etc: If you took this quarter's earnings as the "run-rate" for the year you'd arrive at 1.72 in earnings, and maybe $45mil in Free Cash Flow, for an FCFY (Free Cash Flow Yield) of 6.5% -->> FAR too low for a company...

Is there any money to be made on widespread food products? I tend to think so and I have one precise example; eggs. Until lately, I had no clue about the precise economics of the egg business, until my stock screening came out with a company that has managed to get very profitable by having a very dominant position in the US market. If i tell you there is an company, specialized in the production and distribution of eggs, that has over a 500 million dollars market capitalization, a...
|8/8/08||Notes from My Conversation with Cal-Maine CFO Tim Dawson (College Analysts)|
Today I had the pleasure of speaking with Tim Dawson, CFO of Cal-Maine Foods (CALM). Cal-Maine is the country’s largest producer of shell eggs, and the stock has recently broken out - sending the company past a $1 billion market cap for the first time. Despite the growing market value of the company and its [...]

Egg producer Cal-Maine (CALM) reported earnings before the market opened this week. EPS for the quarter came in at $1.54, and although difficult to gauge without estimates, seems to be on the top-end of most of the informal ranges I’ve read. Despite this, the market seems unimpressed - the stock has only nudged higher by [...]
|7/24/08||Cal-Maine Foods (CALM): The Perfect Downturn Stock (Contrarian Profits)|
People still have to eat in a downturn, says Wayne Mulligan in Penny Sleuth. And as household budgets get tighter, shoppers are least likely to get rid of staple foods. This makes an investment in eggs a great way to play the downturn. That's because the humble egg is one of the great American food staples. One [...]

Barron's had a pretty well-done write-up on egg producer Cal-Maine (CALM) this week, which - although I disagree with the overall bullish tone of the article - seemed to be nicely balanced between long and short arguments. As the Portfolio Manager of the BC Investment Club, which holds shares of CALM, I would obviously like [...]

About a month ago, I posted some data that suggested egg prices were coming down from their then-historic highs, and posited that prices had further to fall. At that time, realizable prices for a dozen large eggs in the southeast region of the US averaged $1.155; the latest data released from the USDA says that [...]
|4/27/08||Cal-Maine (CALM): A Normalized Earnings Valuation (College Analysts)|
As I've argued previously, I don't believe this is a good time to invest in egg producer Cal-Maine (CALM) because: 1. The business is highly seasonal 2. The business is highly cyclical 3. It is a commodity business allowing for no real competitive advantages There are a few related points (i.e. buying cyclical stocks when the earnings multiple is [...]

On Tuesday, I outlined the short case for shell egg producer Cal-Maine (CALM), which didn't seem to earn me many fans. I now have a small inkling of what Eric Savitz catches when he writes something that isn't positive on Apple (AAPL)... needless to say, I am not working as part of short conspiracy, just [...]

At the most recent meeting of the Boston College Investment Club, we had three stock pitches - a sell pitch for Wachovia (WB), a buy pitch for Astra-Zeneca (AZN), and a buy pitch for Cal-Maine (CALM). Because Cal-Maine is by far the most underfollowed of these, I found it most interesting that someone would find [...]

from a short-term perspective, Wednesday trading action was very encouraging. It seems to us that the rebound from February low is still developing. Although, bear in mind that, the market is still stuck in a long-term bear trend and we, therefore, think the upside potential for the bounce is limited. As a matter of fact, we believe that the S&P will have a difficult time to attack the overhead resistant around the 1400 level.
