On CAPS, 90% of the 676 members who have rated ConAgra believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

A couple of months ago, one of those bulls, 1intheBlackSwamp, took a cautiously bullish stance on the stock:

Good dividend -- lots of cash, management skills, products in every home. [T]hey seem to have handled the 'commodity inflation taking profits from food-makers' concern. [T]hey better watch out for becoming the old moldy bread and get that growth thing going.
