Hormel Foods Corporation is an American food company based in Austin, Minnesota. Hormel sells food under many brands, including the Chi-Chi’s, Dinty Moore, Farmer John, Herdez, Muscle Milk, Jennie-O and many more.

From the Hormel Foods 2Q 2016 report

The company reported fiscal 2016 second quarter record net earnings of $215.4 million, up 20 percent from net earnings of $180.2 million last year. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.40, up 21 percent from $0.33 last year. Sales for the quarter were $2.3 billion, up 1 percent from last year.

The stock lost about 8,5% on that news – wall street is a crazy planet.

I played around with some numbers. I am calculating with an EPS of 2,11 US$ for 2020 which is a very conservative assumption. Considering a PE-ratio of 16 (decreasing ratio, this could be wrong) in the future the stock would sell at 33,76 US$ in year 2020 – which is lower than now.

Hormel 2Q16

 Effective May 16, 2016, the company paid its 351st consecutive quarterly dividend, at the annual rate of $0.58.

At 35,48 USD for the share the dividend yield is at 1,6%

Hormel Foods is without questions a high-quality business but for me it is selling at a to high price, even after the drop yesterday.
