Investopedia: Smucker Does Alright, But The Street Goes Away Disappointed

I liked J.M. Smucker (NYSE:SJM) on a relative basis back in November, and the stock hasn't disappointed since – trading up about 20% and slightly outperforming peers like General Mills (NYSE:GIS), Kellogg (NYSE:K), and Kraft (Nasdaq:KRFT) in the packaged food space. I still like Smucker as a company – management is happy to run a business of relatively small, focused, market-leading brands, and run them pretty profitably. While guidance of a year-on-year decline in free cash flow (FCF) and stagnant sales may have disappointed the Street, this still remains a relatively interesting name in the food space.
