On CAPS, 97% of the 213 members who have rated B&G believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include empraptor and All-Star TMF1000, who is ranked in the top 0.5% of our community.
Just last month, empraptor tapped B&G as a rather tasty income opportunity: "I figure canned foods is a good business to be in in this economy and I figure dividend will make this stock more attractive as yield from other investment options drop."
In fact, B&G currently boasts a juicy dividend yield of 4.8%. That's higher than that of much larger food stocks like General Mills (3.3%), J.M. Smucker (2.7%), and Kraft
CAPS All-Star TMF1000 expands on the B&G outperform argument:
The dividend yield is 5%. That wouldn't be enough for me to add this company, but they were on fire before the mini-crash. They are introducing healthier food products like the Ortega whole wheat taco shell. That new product has been a good one for them. Transportation costs hurt them, but gas prices are lower now and should help the next quarter. They produced $22 million in cash flow for the first six months of the year. And made $1.82 per share in cash flow in 2010. TTM cash flow is $71 million or $1.46 per share giving them a cash flow yield of 8.7%. Very cheap.
