  Penalized by problems with its peers

HRL has been whacked due to overall margin pressure but particularly within its poultry business, where competitor Pilgrim's Pride faces likely bankruptcy and Tyson is suffering. HRL offers a far superior balance sheet as well as a better mix of business (other types of products, diversified exposure to meats, strong retail vs restaurant). The disconnect shows up best when evaluating Enterprise Value to EBITDA, as the company trades at 6.1X compared to a more typical 9-10X for the overall food industry.

Hormel gives them out like candy at Halloween, every quarter for 30 years, I am guessing, not positive, encourage your friends to try the new products, Spam lite, Dinty Moore Country beef stew, and for the wealthy, the gourmet line of minimal processed deli meats. This is a rock solid company, good buy at these prices IMHO
