Tyson Foods' (TSN) fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results gain from improved sales in chicken, pork and prepared foods unit. However, sales decline in the beef unit is a drag.
Tyson (TSN) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of -1.63% and -1.98%, respectively, for the quarter ended September 2019. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
SPRINGDALE, Ark. , Nov. 12, 2019 -- Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN), one of the world’s largest food companies and a recognized leader in protein with leading brands including.

Noel White, 61, currently president and chief executive officer, will continue as CEO. In his new role, Banks will report to White and oversee the company’s business segments.
Tyson (TSN) doesn't possess the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely earnings beat in its upcoming report. Get prepared with the key expectations.
Sysco Corporation (SYY) is likely to have gained from favorable local case volumes in the U.S. Foodservice unit in the fiscal first quarter.
The Kraft Heinz Company's (KHC) third-quarter 2019 results are expected to reflect impacts from retailer inventory reductions and cost inflation.
Beyond Meat (BYND) stock fell 10.2% in after-market trading hours on October 28, even as the company reported better-than-expected third-quarter results.
The assessment will be conducted to help identify if there is risk in the company’s sourcing origins, focusing on commodities such as cattle, palm oil, soy, timber, pulp and paper. Findings will inform the development of a Tyson Foods Forest Protection Policy in 2020.
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Beyond Meat Inc.’s Monday earnings report offered plenty for its investors to cheer. Revenue rose 250% from a year earlier to $92 million, exceeding analyst estimates. The company raised its full-year revenue outlook, and for the first time delivered positive net income.(4)If Beyond Meat is to continue its blistering pace of growth, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: The most promising path for this pioneer in the plant-based meat business runs not through America’s home kitchens, but through its big restaurant chains.According to recent survey research from Cowen, the majority of consumers who have tried a plant-based burger from Beyond or its primary rival, Impossible, first did so at a restaurant. (Worth noting: the study was conducted before Burger King’s nationwide rollout of its Impossible Whopper.)It makes sense that the drive-thru window or carryout counter is seen as an inviting way to experiment with an unfamiliar product. Home cooks might not trust themselves to prepare a patty made from pea protein. And a diner might be more likely to try something different, even edgy, if it has the imprimatur of a familiar restaurant chain.So it’s good, then, that Beyond is focused on building a roster of restaurant partners. It announced Monday that Denny’s Corp. will serve its plant-based burgers nationwide starting in 2020. Last week, the company said Dunkin’ restaurants were set to add its plant-based sausage nationwide earlier than originally planned after sales in a test market exceeded forecasts.It is already clear from Beyond’s sales results that it is becoming a company that depends heavily on restaurants. In the first nine months of its current fiscal year, the restaurant division accounted for 48% of revenue. That’s up significantly from the previous year, when 34% of sales came from that division in the comparable nine-month period.The good news for Beyond is that it shouldn’t have any trouble attracting interest from more restaurant partners.It’s not just that sales of these plant-based patties often tend to be incremental to sales of traditional menu items. Cowen analysts estimate that Burger King gets a higher gross profit per transaction on orders that include an Impossible Whopper than on its average lunch or dinner order. If a similar pattern holds at other restaurant chains, you can bet franchisees will be plenty willing to get on board.And as Beyond grows and builds a more efficient supply chain, its food costs should come down, which could eventually make the profitability profile of such orders even more favorable. Impossible and Beyond are in something of an arms race to line up restaurant partners, and they are right to be fighting hard for that menu space.In a year littered with initial public offering flops, the debut of Beyond has stood out, with its shares rocketing as investors see huge growth potential. At the same time, there is reason to be skeptical of Beyond’s rich valuation: Companies such as Nestle SA and Tyson Foods Inc. — industry goliaths with well-developed manufacturing capabilities and marketing firepower — are increasingly looking to get a piece of this new plant-based burger market, one geared more toward omnivores than vegetarians. One of Beyond Meat’s best tools for holding its own against that onslaught is a pack of marquee restaurant partners who can make its products a fast-food menu staple. (1) Beyond Meat’s stock fell in late trading, though that likely reflects investor fears about what might happen to shares upon a lockup expiry on Tuesday.To contact the author of this story: Sarah Halzack at email@example.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Michael Newman at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Sarah Halzack is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering the consumer and retail industries.

As more brands hit fast-food chains and grocery shelves with meatless alternative products, investors can take note of some key trendsetters.
(Bloomberg) -- SoftBank Group Corp. is teeing up investments for the successor to its gargantuan Vision Fund. It’s in talks to back a pharmaceutical delivery startup, a company focused on robotic burger-making and a maker of lab-grown meat, according to people with knowledge of the matter.Vision Fund 2 is the next iteration of SoftBank’s first $100 billion fund, which since 2017 has sent tremors through the startup world with its giant bets on tech companies, including the now-flailing co-working giant WeWork. The Japanese conglomerate is still in the process of raising money for the new fund, and has said it expects it to be even larger than the first.Among the startups that SoftBank is weighing investments in are Alto Pharmacy, Creator and Memphis Meats, said the people, all of whom asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.Representatives for SoftBank’s Vision Fund declined to comment, as did Memphis Meats and Alto Pharmacy. Creator did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Last year, SoftBank Chairman and CEO Masayoshi Son told Businessweek that he plans to raise a new $100 billion fund every two to three years, and invest around $50 billion each year. The size of the forthcoming funding rounds couldn’t immediately be learned. Of the pending investments, the company that has raised the most so far is Alto Pharmacy, which offers same-day prescription deliveries among other services, and has amassed $104 million from investors to date. The San Francisco-based startup, once known as ScriptDash, raised $50 million in a December 2018 funding round from investors including Greenoaks Capital, Zola Global and Jackson Square Ventures.Some of the potential bets are coming at an earlier stage than those of previous SoftBank investments. Creator, previously known as Momentum Machines, has raised about $24 million to date, according to PitchBook. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported talks around the investment.Memphis Meats, a four-year-old San Francisco-based upstart, is seeking to develop meat from cells to eliminate the need for raising and slaughtering animals. So far, it’s raised about $20 million from investors, including the venture capital arm of Tyson Foods Inc. and Richard Branson’s Virgin. AgFunderNews earlier this month reported that SoftBank is in negotiations to participate in a roughly $250 million fundraising round for the startup.The original Vision Fund has not announced any investments since August, unusual for a fund that regularly makes new bets or follow-on investments. In the three months ending June 30, it spent $7.2 billion on 31 new investments, according to an August presentation. With 85% of its capital committed, the first fund is at the "expected end" of its investment period, SoftBank said in that presentation.Recent commitments include leading a $231 million financing for Brazilian fintech company Creditas Solucoes Financeiras Ltda. this summer, investing $110 million in Swiss energy company Energy Vault in August and leading a $200 million financing for supply-chain platform C2FO, based in Leawood, Kansas, also in August.The Japanese conglomerate in July said investors including Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp., Mizuho Bank Ltd. and others had indicated willingness to commit about $108 billion to its second Vision Fund. But as the vehicle’s bet on WeWork soured, some of the biggest backers of the first fund including Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund and Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Investment Co., which contributed $45 billion and $15 billion respectively, have reconsidered how much to pour into the new fund, Bloomberg reported last month.SoftBank is eyeing a writedown of $5 billion or more on its debut Vision Fund, which will reflect the plunge in value of some of its holdings, including WeWork parent We Co. and Uber Technologies Inc., Bloomberg reported this week.(Adds company’s earlier projections on investment size in fifth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Gillian Tan in New York at email@example.com;Sarah McBride in San Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.org;Giles Turner in London at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Alan Goldstein at firstname.lastname@example.org, ;Tom Giles at email@example.com, Anne VanderMey, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
