Investopedia: Smithfield's Miss May Be An Opportunity
Companies that operate in commodity markets often require a bit of
reverse psychology when it comes to their stocks. Invest in protein
producers like Tyson (NYSE:TSN) or Smithfield (NYSE:SFD) when times are great, and you are likely to be buying into a peak. With that in mind, the lackluster performance of Smithfield in its fiscal fourth quarter, combined with some iffy market fundamentals, might make this a stock worth watching.
