B&G Foods lower after Q4 expenses cut into profits

  • B&G Foods (BGS -7.2%) trades lower after missing profit estimates with its Q4 report.
  • The company saw higher expenses during the period. As a percentage of revenues, expenses rose to 81.1% from 78.5% a year ago.
  • Piper Jaffray lost a little faith in the stock after sizing up the quarter, downgrading it to Neutral from Overweight.

    I think this was one of Cramer's favorites. Look at a chart of about a year and a half. Bottom feed?

    He liked it this time in 2012. He has been pumping industrial stocks lately.

    During the conference call, they appear a little perplexed and blame rapidly declining base revenue on "changes in American's eating habits." It seems a Hail Mary to hope for future growth just based on the snack business they purchased (too competitive). Good company but the growth is gone.
