J&J Snack Foods: The Soft Pretzel King Is Expensive

JJSF is a $2.5b consumer staples company that is the market leader in soft pretzels. It has grown dividends for 18 consecutive years. However, it is trading at 35x PE with a 2% dividend yield. With stagnating revenues and decreasing margins, forward returns do not seem attractive. Investors should expect multiple compression, especially if the company cannot grow or raise prices to combat continued inflationary pressures.
