Cranswick potential is ramping up, says Berenberg
Strong trading among its customers and the potential in pet food are providing a positive backdrop for food producer Cranswick (CWK), says Berenberg.

Analyst Matthew Abraham retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £46.20 on the Citywire Elite Companies A-rated stock, which gained 0.7%, or 24p, to £35.20 yesterday.

Abraham said ‘favourable market conditions’ have carried forward from first quarter 2024 to second quarter 2024, which ‘coupled with the outperformance of Cranswick’s major customers relative to peers’, provides the backdrop for ‘strong trading momentum’.

On his calculation, Abraham said there is also ‘revenue potential from the pet food segment’ that could deliver an annual revenue contribution of c£220m, ‘which is significantly above long-term consensus forecasts of £51m’.

‘Cranswick has enjoyed a period of strong performance over the prior six months due to its alignment with retailers that have outperformed peers,’ said Abraham.

‘Cranswick trades on 12-month forward price/earnings multiple of 16.2 times, broadly aligned with its long-term trailing average.’

I think that anyone who has ever been inside a sausage factory would agree that it represents the sharp end of both capitalism and carnivorism!
But the demand for cheap processed food will continue , whatever the Governments food policies suggest , and the current one certainly doesn't look like it wants to improve healthy eating if it offends the food industry.
The current crisis must affect CWK in various ways but the product demand will remain.

This sausage maker has lost a quarter of its value – but with an 8pc dividend bump, we can’t ignore it

I suppose the slump in the price today was down to a) being at a high point b) this 'news' you mention from Peel Hunt? c) some dubious figs from PP MP etc. spooked some gigantic holders of CWK shares into selling up altogether each trying not to be left holding the baby, Is that the full story? did you see this PH downgrade? whaty does it say?

...from last year...

Cranswick is among the leaders in premium, fresh food products supply in the UK. The company operates 15 production facilities across the UK and more than 11 800 people. CWK has full control on their pig breeding and rearing activities, and their chicken operation is fully integrated. Strategy is focused on supplying high quality products, in line with the highest standards of the sector. Cranswick works not only with most UK grocery retailers, but also has good exposure to the “food-to-go” sector and significant exports. This year they have invested additional £12.7m in expansion projects. The company benefits from a well-diversified portfolio supplying various types of meats and high demand levels throughout the pandemic. Strong growth in revenue, channelling even bigger numbers in net profit makes the stock attractive.
Over the years the company proved its ability to generate cash with continuously rising CFO. The controlled amount of leverage and low levels of goodwill on the balance sheet, even in the presence of several acquisitions upon the realization of their blended growth approach, present a strong balance sheet. Last but not least, profitability has been rising, and long-term growth is further supported by company’s ambition to invest in its asset base. Latest trading update is creating more positive sentiment for the stock. Revenue was 9.6% above results from the same period in 2020, volumes were 7.7% up, and Far East export was “well ahead”. The outlook is still in line with expectations of the Board, but there is room for that to change as hospitality is now almost fully functioning and people are desperate to go out....from WealthOracleAM

I've got a feeling the 'frankenchickens' are coming home to roost here. Get ready for a boohoo type public revulsion reaction. One major holder is reducing. Maybe it'll be temporary, but it's likely that Morrisons will quickly cave and CWK might have to switch away from the fast growing broilers and adopt a less 'efficient' process for bringing chicken meat to British tables. Environmentalists and animal welfare groups will doubtless be taking a look at the pig-rearing practices too. The first chicken revelations a week or two back had no noticeable effect on the sp, but public awareness is building on this brand in a bad way. For now, I suspect we may have reached the top.
