Q2 marks J.M.Smucker’s third consecutive quarterly results miss

In its third consecutive quarterly results miss, J. M. Smucker Company (SJM) Wednesday reported second-quarter earnings of $2.17 per share, which came below analysts’ expectation of $2.35 per share.

Net sales rose 5% to $2.02 billion, but it missed the Street consensus of $2.05 billion. Excluding the impact from Ainsworth acquisition, net sales declined 1% driven by lower net price realization on coffee, peanut butter, and pet food and pet snacks.

The disappointing results sent SJM shares tumbling 5.3% during pre-market trading.

During the trailing two quarters, the food company had reported disappointing results, missing analysts’ expectations on both revenue and income. The poor results had weighed on the stock, which has been strictly trading sideways throughout this year. The stock is currently trading down 11% so far this year.

The saving grace during the second quarter was the company’s pet foods segment, which reported a sales increase of 32% riding on Ainsworth acquisition. All the other segments reported year-over-year sales declines.

The divestiture of its U.S. baking business in August partially weighed on the gross profit, which saw a modest 2% increase.

Sending further signs of slow growth, the company lowered its 2019 full-year outlook for revenue and net income. It currently expects full-year revenue of about $7.9 billion, lower than the prior guidance of $8 billion.

Meanwhile, adjusted EPS guidance range for the same period was slashed from $8.40 – $8.65 to $8.00 – $8.20.
