    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.

    Cal-Maine Foods (CALM +4%) moves higher into the close after beating FQ4 estimates earlier today. Net income soared as a large gain from a new venture in the specialty-egg market more than offset the higher operating costs. The company noted cautiously however that feed costs are going to continue to rise over the near term due to the severe drought and damage to the national corn crop.
