Rising share price has the last word. Look what happened to top cigarette producers over the last 15 years? They rewarded their investors in spades. No one can predict the future so we are only left with trusting the prevailing trend. GLA

I would be worried about the share price going forward. The media has been covering the cancer scare on processed meats and the posh sausage brigade will be possibly considering changing their family menus to alternative healthier fare IMHO.

I have owned this since it was called Cranswick Mill , very reluctant to sell and pay any CGT but I decided to make a small reduction last week @ £17 as I believe the recent health risks of eating too much processed meat (particularly bacon and sausages) was genuine and I see consumers reducing their consumption . A brilliantly run company but turnover growth at risk if we all cut back on proc meat .

Cranswick £14.13+13p Questor says BUY CRANSWICK [LON:CWK], Britain’s largest sausage maker, said yesterday that it had enjoyed a strong finish to the year on rising sales of fresh pork — the sort of encouraging performance that underpins why we think the shares make a good addition to any portfolio. The FTSE 250-listed company boasts a solid balance sheet, excellent cash generation and it likes to return that cash to shareholders through regular dividend payments. The company said that sales of pork products accelerated throughout the second half of the year. Mark Bottomley, finance director, said it was strong demand for fresh pork that really helped sales recover. Sales of pork products during the three months to the end of March were 4pc higher than the same period a year earlier, and up from 2pc growth in the third quarter. That second half sales performance meant full-year sales were up 1pc, a steady improvement on the sluggish first-half. Market consensus is for full-year revenue at the sausage maker to break the billion pound barrier and reach £1.01bn, giving pre-tax profits of about £57.1m, up from £54.8m a year earlier. Cranswick is able to serve up rising profits despite fairly flat sales because it is being helped by falling costs, which are largely made up by the main ingredient in sausages which is pig meat. Pig prices have fallen from a record high of 173p per kilogram at the end of 2013, to about 130p today. Mr Bottomley said the main reason for this was the falling price of wheat which is used for animal feed, and makes of about three quarters of the cost of rearing a pig. Cranswick has also been taking greater control of its cost base and supply chain by expanding its pig breeding and growing facilities. The company now supplies more than 20pc of its weekly meat demand of some 50,000 pigs from its own farms in the UK. Mr Bottomley said he expected that proportion of own meat to increase to about 30pc during the coming years. As well as taking control of costs, the company is also trying to move into products other than just sausages that are higher profit. It has invested £25m during the past year improving its cooked meats facility. Mr Bottomley said sales of products such as pulled pork have doubled in the past year. The acquisition of the pig farming business and investment into new production facilities saw debt levels increase at Cranswick and the company should finish with net debt at around £17m. However, with strong cash generation the debt levels are forecast to reverse to net cash of almost £5m within 12 months’ time. The strong cash generation also means steady dividend payments for shareholders. The company is entering its 27th year of dividend increases and is expected to pay about 35p in annual dividends for the year ended March 2015, leaving shares on a 2.5pc prospective dividend yield. The dividend payments are forecast to increase by about 8pc for each of the next two years, and the payments are covered more than twice by cash and earnings. The shares have had a quiet year so far, up just 2.4pc, which is well behind the wider FTSE 250 that has risen 9.8pc so far. The shares are trading on a forecast price-earnings ratio of 14.6 times, falling to 13.8. This looks fair given the track record, cash generation and strong balance sheet. We think this company is a core portfolio holding as it delivers a steady profit performance and decent dividend growth. The shares could catch up with the market for the rest of this year and a pleasant surprise around profit forecasts at the full-year results in May could spark upgrades. Buy.

I predict a significant fall here. Not only is the CWK price frothy, rising on minimal volumes but the following factors will be having an effect behind the scenes. Food sales going down: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/11047813/UK-recovery-in-doubt-after-record-fall-in-food-sales.html People are buying less and buying cheaper. Cranswick's biggest contracts (apparently 60% of their business according to recent press) is with three supermarkets Sainsbury, Tesco, & Morrisons and these three are locked into a price war amongst themselves and more particularly Aldi and Lidl who are taking market share continuously. The supermarkets will be pressuring Cranswick's pricing. Also, Aldi and Lidl are flexible businesses and will be exploiting the opportunity to buy cheap pork, ham, sausages etc due to the fall in open-market pig prices coming from the Russian ban on Euro imports and the flood onto the European market of unsold pork etc. Have taken a short position today.

As I understand it, CWK have some pig production 'in house' - this was done to help overcome ever increasing pig prices and to obtain control of the production chain. In terms of 'bought in' pig supply, surely this will help reduce costs and be a positive? Having said that, the supermarkets will be wise to this and will likely use it as a lever to squeeze CWK where they can (thereby reducing any cost benefits). I would therefore see cheaper lean hog futures as positive or neutral at worst.

Lean hog futures getting cheaper but CWK going higher. Cheaper pigs has to mean smaller profits surely, unless the supermarkets miss this news and fail to negotiate lower prices. Doesn't seem likely to me that they'll miss out on the opportunity to push prices down but maybe supermarket buyers aren't the hard-nosed negotiators they're always being made out to be.

And it's high time there was a correction here - ham seems to be as expensive as steak nowadays. That's like gold being valued at the same rate as silver. I have a feeling that CWK has taken prices as far as they can for now and oversupply will finally burst this particular bubble.

Get ready for a downswing here. I reckon all that European meat the Russians have stopped buying will shortly be coming to the UK and driving down prices. Tesco will take every opportunity to negotiate prices down in a weakening market because of its desperate need to compete more effectively with Aldi/Lidl. Cranswick looks to me like an inevitable loser from these market dynamics. Am I wrong?

Cranswick used to farm pigs years ago and got out because they recognised that pig farming had poor margins and only the farmer was able to give the hours needed to make it work. they have now bought back into pig farming and will be relying on managers to make it work. how many months before they realise that they have made a pigs ear of a decision. They would have been much better to have treated pig farmers fairer and built genuine partnerships with the professionals. this is going to be an expensive mistake. how long before they do a tesco and throw the towel in? Pig farming is going to be an albatross but it will allow pig farmers to have a much needed laugh. I wonder what col L thinks? Perhaps they will open a feed mill next so that they can be truly vertically integrated, how the wheel turns.

Cranswick caught selling British pork to Tesco which appears to be not British. How many other supermarkets might have been misled by Cranswick? This story could destroy Cranswick's credibility. Destroyed confidence can not be repaired easily
