Shares of Cal-Maine Foods (CALM -10.2%) are getting hit today after its FQ2 bottom line missed estimates this morning. Net earnings fell 39% Y/Y as higher feed costs and acquisition expenses offset higher prices for fresh-shell eggs. The company also noted that feed costs are likely to remain high and volatile for the remainder of fiscal 2013, which will put further pressure on margins over the near term.
