Hormel: Combining Pricing Power With Organic Growth
Growth in Q4 was a remarkable 43% and reflected pricing action, organic volume growth, and the integration of Planters into the product line. Revenue growth is likely to exceed historical levels for several years due to ongoing pricing power and improvements in operational efficiencies. I expect 5-10% stock appreciation in addition to a stable, increasing dividend.
