What: Shares of snack maker Diamond Foods (NASDAQ: DMND ) fell 10% today after reporting earnings.
So what: Fiscal second quarter revenue fell 16% to $220.8 million, which was short of the $239.2 million analysts expected. On the bottom line, net income was $10.1 million, or $0.43 per share, but when you pull out one-time items the profit falls to $0.05 per share, a penny below expectations.
Now what: The most concerning part of the report was the company's huge drop in revenue. Shares are trading at 21 times forward earnings, a price that's steep even for a company that's growing revenue at a good clip. I don't see a reason to buy shares here and would wait to re-evaluate until the company turns revenue around.
