Conagra Brands Facing Major Inflationary Headwinds
Image Shown: Conagra Brands Inc recently reduced its full-year guidance for fiscal 2022 in the face of major inflationary headwinds. Image Source: Conagra Brands Inc – Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2021 IR Earnings Presentation. On July 13, the company behind the Slim Jim, Duncan Hines, Gardein brands (among other), Conagra Brands reported fourth quarter earnings for fiscal 2021 (period ended May 30, 2021) that beat both consensus top- and bottom-line estimates. However, its guidance for fiscal 2022 came in a bit light in the face of major inflationary headwinds which saw shares sell off initially after the report was published. Please note that its fiscal 2020 was a 53 week reporting period while its fiscal 2021 was a 52 week reporting period, making GAAP year-over-year comparisons noisy, and that is before taking the coronavirus (‘COVID-19’) pandemic into account.

Stock Market Outlook for 2021
2020 was one from the history books and a year that will live on in infamy. That said, we are excited for the future as global health authorities are steadily putting an end to the public health crisis created by COVID-19, aided by the quick discovery of safe and viable vaccines. Tech, fintech, and payment processing firms were all big winners in 2020, and we expect that to continue being the case in 2021. Digital advertising, cloud-computing, and e-commerce activities are set to continue dominating their respective fields. Cybersecurity demand is moving higher and the constant threats posed by both governments (usually nations that are hostile to Western interests) and non-state actors highlights how crucial these services are. Retailers with omni-channel selling capabilities are well-positioned to ride the global economic recovery upwards. Green energy firms will continue to grow at a brisk pace in 2021, though the oil & gas industry appears ready for a comeback. The adoption of 5G wireless technologies and smartphones will create immense growth opportunities for smartphone makers, semiconductor players and telecommunications giants. Video streaming services have become ubiquitous over the past decade with room to continue growing as households “cut the cord” and instead opt for several video streaming packages. We’re not too big of fans of old industrial names given their capital-intensive nature relative to capital-light technology or fintech, but there are select names that have appeal. Cryptocurrencies have taken the market by storm as we turn the calendar into 2021, but the traditional banking system remains healthy enough to withstand another shock should it be on the horizon. Our fair value estimate of the S&P 500 remains $3,530-$3,920, but we may still be on a roller coaster ride for the year. Here’s to a great 2021!

Cole Haan Files to Go Public
Maker of footwear, handbags, sunglasses, and various other accessories Cole Haan has filed to go public. One thing that makes this planned IPO particularly interesting is that Cole Haan was free cash flow positive in both fiscal 2018 (period ended June 2, 2018) to fiscal 2019 (period ended June 1,2019), generating $35 million and $38 million in free cash flows, respectively. The firm plans on trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, run by Nasdaq Inc, under the ticker CLHN. Additionally, please note that after the planned IPO, funds advised by British private-equity firms Apax Partners LLP and Apax Partners are expected to continue to own a “majority… of the shares eligible to vote in the election of our directors” according to Cole Haan’s S-1 filing with the SEC.
