Conagra shares jump 6.5% premarket as profit beat offsets sales missConagra Brands Inc. shares rose 6.5% in premarket trade Thursday, after the Chicago-based company topped profit estimates for its fiscal first quarter and reaffirmed guidance, offsetting a sales miss. The owner of food brands including Birds Eye, Healthy Choice, Slim Jim and others, said it had net income of $173.8 million, or 36 cents a share, in the quarter to Aug. 25, down from income of $178.2 million, or 45 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to 43 cents, ahead of the 39 cents FactSet consensus. Sales rose to $2.39 billion from $1.83 billion, below the $2.48 billion FactSet consensus. "While our Foodservice and International businesses experienced unplanned softness on the top line this quarter, they outperformed our operating profit and margin expectations," Chief Executive Sean Connolly said in a statement. "We believe the first quarter net sales issues in these segments were discrete and are now largely behind us." The company said it's sticking with its fiscal 2020 guidance and expects sales to grow 13.5% to 14.0% and adjusted EPS of $2.08 to $2.18. Shares have gained 40% in 2019, while the S&P 500 has gained 19%.
