General Mills’ Pet Segment Performs Well
Image Source: General Mills Inc – Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Earnings IR Presentation. On December 18, General Mills reported second quarter results for its fiscal 2020 (period ended November 24, 2019), which saw shares of GIS rise by almost 2% during normal trading hours that day as investors were excited over its strong performance of its pet food sales. Please note General Mills completed its $8.0 billion all-cash acquisition of Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc in April 2018, and investors have been eagerly awaiting the revenue growth stimulus that deal was projected to generate. Shares of GIS are trading near the very top of our fair value range estimate and yield 3.7% as of this writing.

A Tale of Two Big Agricultural Industries: Protein Producers Win and Farm Equipment Manufacturers Lose After Recent USDA Report
Image Shown: The tale of two big agricultural companies in one chart, with shares of poultry producer Sanderson Farms Inc (SAFM) shooting up on Monday, August 12, as chicken feed prices fell after a recent USDA report (which sent corn prices sharply lower) while shares of agricultural equipment manufacturer AGCO Corporation (AGCO) tanked as the market priced in continued pressure on US farm incomes and the dynamic impact that has on demand for farm equipment. We are monitoring the agricultural industry but don’t have any agricultural-oriented equities in our Best Ideas Newsletter or Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolios for a reason. In the short- to medium-term, the space will continue to experience volatility as the next chapter of the US-China trade war unfolds.

A New Measure of Leverage for Dividend-Growth and Income-Oriented Shareholders, One That Is Dividend-Adjusted
As more and more investors rely on company dividends for income, dividends, in our view, have become more debt-like commitments in nature, especially from the perspective of dividend-growth or income-oriented shareholders. We plan to roll out a new measure of financial leverage that considers both the company’s debt and the present value of its future expected cash dividend obligations, which, in the eyes of die-hard dividend-growth or income-oriented shareholders, may be implicitly assumed to be debt-like commitments in substance. We think this leverage ratio can be used in conjunction with the Dividend Cushion ratio to gain additional insight into the dividend-paying financial health of an entity.
