Analysts have opted for caution throughout 2022, noting shares of Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE:TSN) a take. The beat of the market consensus rating of analysts lately moves towards a bullish position. The stock is a potential value opportunity at around $60, according to our estimates.

Tyson ranks as the 5e the largest food and beverage company in the industry, according to at FoodEngineering.com. After a warm 2021, conditions in 22 have triggered downward pressure on the stock price. It has fallen to a 52-week low where it starts the new year from a high of +$100. This may be a buying opportunity.

Tyson Stock underperforms as food sector stabilizes

The consensus on the average price target is +20.5% to $75 over the next 12 months. Shares could hit a high of $97. Since last October, momentum has increased among food, consumer staples and beverage stocks. For example, on average, the two largest ETFs in the food sector are up 5% per year. Yet Tyson shares are still down about 28% for the year.

In response, management continues to reduce general and administrative costs and consolidate operations. They spend more money on advertising. The company has made 13 acquisitions, including 3 in the past five years. Tyson maximizes its efforts in popular food consumption trends, including organic meat and mime meat. We expect revenue in 2023 to reach $55 billion or +3%.

The stock price appears to have found a base around $60. Short interest hit a low point at the end of November. It increased on December 15, but only to 1.7%. The volatility disappeared from the stock; its beta is 0.69.

Inconsistent earnings and a plethora of other factors are causing investors to be cautious. Adjusted EPS of $1.63 in Q4 22 was down 29% year-on-year, although adjusted operating income was +3% year-on-year.

The EPS forecast is good, as is the dividend

The EPS forecast is stable and is expected to increase in mid-2023. On June 23, it could reach $1.66 per share and $1.77 in September.

The dividend yield (forward) of the 88-year-old company is 3.08%. An increase in the dividend in 22 took it from $0.46 to $0.48.

Assets total $36.8 billion and liabilities, as of September 30, amount to $17 billion. Debt ($8.3 billion) to equity ($19.8 billion) is a satisfactory ratio of 42%. The company has reduced the ratio by 96% over the past five years. In 2022, Tyson paid off another billion dollar debt and repurchased 8.2 million shares.

Hedge funds move in and out of stocks. 670 institutional buyers held shares in 2022 and 483 sold with over $1 billion in inflows. Corporate insiders sold shares worth $9.63 million from the first to fourth quarters of 2022. They own a pretty healthy 1.96% of the stock.

Food is an essential industry, but Tyson Foods faces challenges

Tyson’s business is beef, pork, chicken and prepared foods. Food is an essential industry. People need to eat every day. This is another reason why Tyson makes a good long-term investment. There are challenges: food insecurity, environmental problemsand inflation.

The food industry is heavy but not worrying. Tyson is addressing challenges that include supply and labor shortages. Bad weather, whether it’s droughts, floods, storms or frosts, kills forage crops. Epidemics reduce egg clutches, chicken clutches, cattle herds, and pig herds. Labor issues slowed or stopped production, injured exportsand are ascend prices.

Exports of pork and red meat (+50%) recovered momentum in the second half of 2022. Impact will begin to show in 2023 earnings reports. The next quarterly report is due February 6, 2023. The Y cards chart demonstrates the increase in revenues and almost stable expenses.

Good to the last bite

Tyson spent $283 million in 2022 on global advertising. He favors Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm, Ball Park and other brands. That’s +$30 million more than Tyson spent in 2021. It had a positive effect on revenue and profit. The company settled the labor troubles the assailant. Management farm plants. The Illinois and South Dakota offices will move to Arkansas in 2023.

We believe these changes will have a positive impact on future earnings later in the year. With the actions taken by management and the demand for beef, chicken and pork holding up, we expect Tyson’s stock to be, as Dr. Seuss wrote, “Heading to good places.” ! Today is your day.”
