"Are adding staff and capacity is the pandemic persists or we eating more food is that they like their meat, eating more food that you buy at that you buy at the grocery store anyway. Ah were especially the beginning this pandemic and this is a little bit, You know, conflicting news here, both of these interviews from the Wall Street Journal, But the first is that Hey, all these food makers are adding staff capacity because they expect this pandemic. Play out longer expected to be a long time before people go back to restaurants in the same way before people order lunch at the office or take food on the go again, So they're they're they're building up stuff that you saw in the grocery store in the same regard.

"campbell soup" Discussed on MAD MONEY W/ JIM CRAMER
"Market seems to be troubled by what we call defensive stocks, the slow and steady growers the tend to thrive during a recession. Most of the economy seems to be in the doldrums but a lot of doing too well to only stocks and the lack of love from Wall Street means you're getting some I think incredible deal. So take Campbell Soup. Now this traits that just fifteen. percent you generate huge amount of cash. We put this one are Kobe nine, hundred index back able, and sadly it's the third worst performer out of a hundred because Campbell soup is not what you by accelerating. Calm but it doesn't throw it away. report a couple of weeks ago. The actual numbers worked terrific eighteen percent sales from say, but the stock still got slammed. Madman could really give any guidance for the next fiscal year futures too uncertain fabric everybody feels that way mostly because of the panic place they're out of style that won't be true forever. No. So let's take a closer with mark class. He's the turnaround artist presents. He'll Campbell, students would be in a better sense of doing and where it's headed Mr Klaus Welcome back to. Jim. Great to be back with you. All right. So mark with only get one thing straight and I owe you want this I, read the whole, the whole conference call and there was one world where you talked about what you said. Maybe we'll get back to normalcy and I misinterpreted that as meaning that you felt that perhaps buyers had gotten ahead of themselves in Campbell's product, and now we're back to normal, which is the old slow way that was not a good way to Buick. Correct. That is absolutely correct I think. Certainly the point we were making trying to make is that in many ways, it's a new north we we've trained educated entire new generation of consumers that are now cooking with our products and I think you know although we live in symbolic times the base for our business in our products but the outlook has never been brighter and we feel that that stickiness for that continuation of that behavior cooking's going to continue and I think we are very very well. Positioned with our oil whether it's super brought business but also our prego and our business to really meet consumer needs where that the years happening so we feel great about the fact that as we enter into a new normal I, this is going to be a an elevated level of relevance I want to go further. Eight seems as it may be demand was so strong that you actually had supplied constraints and could have even reported a better number than what we saw. That's right. I think as we enter into our six month thou- of this elevated level up demand through the pandemic and businesses that arguably walking into the into the pandemic. I'm we're steady businesses that now are experiencing growth rates stanchly above anything that we've seen historically, that's put some pressure on supply but I feel great about the actions that we take whether it's adding capacity selectively on businesses like our goldfish business, rock, kettle chips business or even. Our business or whether it's adding manufacturers are better prioritizing what we're manufacturing. The team is doing an amazing job executing, and I'm one hundred percent comfortable that we're going to address these problems in as we move through the fall and into the winter, the hardest soup season, we're going to be in a great position to meet the demands of our consumers and our retail partners, and with that I think is gonNA come along momentum and growth and continued progress on. Somewhat there had been a bit of A. A conflict here mentally millennials look like they saw Campbell soup and they thought soil saw this new people as calm gen-x wherever you want to them. But younger people they are not as interested. Certainly care about healthy. We'll get the label, but they look at the label and they see that it isn't filled with all these preservatives they look at the price and they think good because I don't make a lot of money and then they. Yeah and you know Jim that is really you know when we talk about making the most of a very difficult and tough situation in the pandemic. That is what we're talking about is that our products have now entered into millions of new. Or than fifty percent of them are millennials and I think what millennials are discovering a variety of things. But starting with the fact that our products fit very well into their lifestyle with their targeting for health and wellness thinking about things like the presence of a vegetables or a lack of added preservatives I mean one of the things that I think people have always struggled with conceptual is the fact. That perhaps after freezing canning is the most natural way to preserve food and idea that what is in the can is actually good food is been a big focus of what we've been working on both and communication as well as the renovations of the product that we did well before the pandemic, and certainly we're glad that foundation was in place. But yes, I think you've got a new generation of consumers. Are Using our product and are pleased with what are able to do. With that in mind, we expect that to continue going. Meantime snacking work from home people. It just seems like they're addicted. They tend to eat six seven times a day rather than the old days when they have breakfast where they go to work, they have lunch work then they go home and they like stacks and your portfolio fits their profile. Yeah, you know we just talked about our meals and beverage business as relates to this. Resurgence of demand on these fabric of the nation grants like Campbell's Swanson and Prego, that's fifty percent of our revenue I think the great news for us with the relevancy and the acceleration of growth there the other fifty percent of our revenue, the snacks business that is in highly differentiated highly differentiated spaces that has been growing before the pandemic accelerated through this period of time, and we really expect that to grow. Going forward, and I think if you put those two pieces together is why we feel there's such a bright future for the trajectory of the comic at one. This question I know when you came in people worried about the balance sheet, they don't worry anymore and one of the reasons because the Castro here is humongous stock stays here and things stabilize by back resumption of a bigger given and what what's your thoughts..

He's GonNa break down how to build your credibility, your authority with your team with your actual clients with anybody who work with some simple steps you can take. This is especially important for new to this if you are. are dealing with new clients or you have new teams joining your team. The first thing everybody's thinking about when they meet you is, is this person? The real deal? Can I trust them? Will they deliver? Are they the leader I'm looking for? Is this the business or client I want to work with and that all boils down to are you credible? Let's make sure the answer is, yes. So I'm GONNA pass it onto onto, teach you today's guest teacher lesson, but I'll be back to rabbit today's episode and share with you that linked to get the free, first chapter of allowance book cracking the Leadership Code, but for now takeaway on. Hello there, my name is Alla. Pumpkins. Thank you for joining me today. Today. You how to increase your influence and impact five building your credibility. So, let's get down to business. I'd like to start by giving you thirty thousand foot high level overview of our lesson today. We'll start by looking at what credibility is. Then take a look at why it's so important, and then look at the three biggest actions you can take to build your credibility, but let's start with a story about a leader named Clint. Clint is the CO founder of a software company that's grown rapidly over the last three years. He's smart outgoing and he's great in front of customers. In fact, the sales team is nicknamed Clinton Midas because everything he touches turns to gold. However for all of Clint's strengths, he has this tragic flaw. He's consistently late for meetings ten, twenty, thirty minutes. Late is par for the course with Clinton sometimes even more. In Clint is also the master of excuses as to why he's late. He'll say, well, this customer meeting went long or this operational issue needed my time or gosh, the traffic from the airport was horrible. However is much as Clinton tries to explain and excuse his way out of it. His team is just not having it anymore. It's having an impact on engagement morale. In fact, two of Clint's direct reports have quit in the last week. And the sad truth is clint doesn't have a clue as to why and the reason because Clinton has never stopped to recognize the importance of credibility. So let's start and take a look. What exactly is credibility. Credibility comes from the Latin word credibility, which means worthy to believed. Credibility, is the main ingredient in trust and trust is the glue of human relationship. Turns out credibility shares the same etymological root as the word credit, which means alone or a thing entrusted to another. So, let's take a look at why that is so important. So if you want to influence others, you want them to do something because it's important to you. So, how did they decide if they're going to do it? Well, it's based on your relationship credit score. If you have a high credit score, you've proven yourself as a low risk, high return person and the other person is likely to help. They think you're a good investment. However, if you're a high risk low return person forget about it, they're not going to help fact is people own their own talents and skills, and they only offer them to you on loan. So having a high level of credibility or relationship credit score is your way of proving that you're worth loaning to. For people to truly follow you. They have to believe you're worth following. And how do they decide it's through your actions or is Albert Schweitzer the Nobel Prize winner. Put it. Example is not the main thing influencing others. It is the only thing. So. If you want to increase your influence and impact and others, you need to grow your credibility. To take a look at the top three things that you can do to make that happen. The first. Showing up on. Time to lesson from Clint. If I could only choose one practice to grow my credibility. I'd say show up on time you should treat your performance in this arena is a big deal. It is think about it for a moment. Timeliness is the easiest and most visible thing to measure sure either here or you're not. Fact is lateness is about much more than just a few wasted minutes. In life being on time is the most basic social contract that of presence. When you're late, your behavior sends a clear message. I have other things going on. That are more important than you are. And when you're on time, you send a clear message that you value the other person. So you to choose what's the message that you WanNa send and know that your actions speak a lot louder than your intentions. The second thing that you can do to grow your credibility is to do what you say you're GONNA do. You see when you open your mouth and promised to do something you cr- create expectations in those who are listening to you for them that promise is now this open psychological loop of tension that seeks resolution and it stays open nagging at them as they think, will they follow through or not? The fact is people crave closure. So every time you do what you say you're going to do you strengthen the connection between your words and your deeds, which is exactly what's meant by walking the talk when you walk your talk your seen as congruent and when you don't. You're not. You're out of integrity something's off, which is what Ralph Waldo Emerson Express when he said who you are speaks. So loudly, I can't hear what you're saying. See Doing. What you say you're going to do is the precise deficit of accountability. have. You ever wondered where accountability comes from. It comes from the world of accounting in finance. There's a balance sheet, there's on one side assets. The other side is liabilities and the to need to equal each other to be in account. Well, in human behavior, the two sides of your behavioral balance-sheet are what you say you're going to do. And what you actually did. And when you follow through and do what you say, you'll do the two sides balanced out and you're accountable. So a top tip around this. Do you say what you're GonNa do is write things down. Keep a written record of what you promised to do your way better off being someone who under promises and over delivers than the other way around. This means you have to be clear on your commitments and also be willing to say no from time to time. So. We've looked at our first two actions. Showing up on time doing what you say you're going to do our third one is around being consistent. This is the practice of doing what you say you're going to do not just once, but repeatedly multiple times over an extended period of time. When you start to build the deposits in that emotional bank account, your credit score goes up. The, no. One's going to throw you a party for showing up on time. However, the little things done over time compound and have a multiplier effect. As an example, take the CEO of Campbell Soup, a man called Doug. It now doug was CEO of Campbell Soup, for ten years and in his ten year period as the leader of Campbell's. Doug wrote Thirty Thousand Personal Handwritten. Thank you notes to his employees. Now, by the way over those ten years, Campbell's only had twenty thousand employees, and if you do the math, it works out to more than eight. Thank you notes per day seven days a week for ten years. Now, that's pretty incredible to me. Now, I'm not saying you need to start writing eight. Thank you know today, but I think Doug Conan's example of the power of consistently and showing how that multiplies and compounds over time is great. It's so easy in this world to think that we're too busy to do the important things. See if you WanNa know what a person values. Look at their calendar and see where they spend their time because that is the ultimate test of what you're truly valuing because ultimately, every action that you take will either strengthen or weaken your credibility and connection between. which either strengthens or weakens your influence and your impact.

I met with the Young Woman. That doesn't work here and she wants to go do something and she's not leaving because she's worried that her resumes. Shanley worked at this place for six months. It's twenty twenty fucking wreath resumes talking about that. That's when I when I lost my job. It's like you were ashamed that you lost your job and you didn't tell anybody people still are that way and and it was a real. Yeah so what happened with your career? Where did you get picked up? I ended up going to craft had a good run at craft. Where I'm moved to Peter did you and did you go to did you go to Chicago. I WENT BACK TO CHICAGO. Tail between my legs to a degree. Because that's where I grew up but kraft the job. I had a great great job. Entry Point what plans visit. Category Manager for Kraft Salad Dressings. But I went on to be Director of corporate strategy at Craft and then I got recruited right after barbarians at the gate. Right a bike. Ar I tell everybody a little bit about this book in the corporate world. I want some of the youngsters and entrepreneurs and outside the corporate world to hear this. Tell everybody just a few seconds on that iconic book and story. Well this this was the story of the Second. Half of the twentieth century. It was the world's largest at the time it was K. Are Buying RJR NABISCO. Rjr was a money machine tobacco machine they acquired NABISCO and some other food companies and built this massive business but the handwriting on the wall for the tobacco industry and So business started as tough and KKR came in and made it the world's largest Alberto they plan to flip it in five years. It took US ten and they there was so much. Money coursing through the veins of this company that It was like the wild west of corporate spending in this. Is there were supporting. Yeah there were stories of the chairman. Since passed sending the corporate jet to pick up his dog on the East Coast to come out to Mission Hills California for a golf tournament on the West Coast. The dog the dog and we had we had we had a team. He had assembled a team of the greatest athletes of all time. I know the story The Johnny Johnny United States. All of them. They really had no income in their retirement. They had made the money right and so they started. They had about thirty people on payroll who lived off. Rjr NABISCO and showed up at advance and everything else. It was a larger payroll. I believe than the Yankees at the time but it was the. Who's who of hall of Fame Land. Because he loved the source and just wanted to hang out those hang out and you know it was a it worked so they. It was just amazing. Excess kkr bought it. We had a sort of wind all that down because corporate governance was getting in the way. I mean. You couldn't do that some of that stuff. And so we ended up taking a lot of cost out. I had a good run. There's the last five years I was president of Nabisco foods running that and then we sold that actually back to craft who I had left and then I was recruited to go help. Fix Campbell Soup Company. Which was I was there for a decade CEO and that was agreed. That was wild. I went in there and headquartered candidate remind me I apologize was directly to see. Oh Yeah so. How did that feel? How did it feel on the dawn of knowing you're getting offered the CEO of one of the most iconic? American I mean this is now your full career at this point now from from the early days and Parker Brothers gentlemen should be looking for another job. Should be clean out your desk. Did you try to me? Did you try to find those two guys that wrote that review the night? I would've found those spots Ronald I got something for you. So they know. How did I know they know did the did it feel was that I it was? It was just. It was a head hunter. It was a head hunter. Yeah but I we have been acquired and they knew I was the the market new. I was not going to go back to craft so there were several opportunities percolating. I ended up picking the Campbell. Were they all CEO? Jobs got it so it's the only I would go to at that point in your career. I always said you know I I. I'm slow so I'm not as fast as you but I always said I wanna be. Ceo by the time. I'm forty nine and Ryan. I was forty nine when it happened. This you'll find funny. I speak fast my energies fast but I'm actually wildly slow like even this company. I'm running now when we met way back when for some more this has been built really to buy brands. I'm far more. Kkr Far more private equity than I am agency like. I'm actually going slow. The energy's high. I would argue that you forty nine hundred thirty young age at that time of Year of that era too something like it was pretty cool. Yeah well the biggest challenge with that. There's a lot of challenges going. I happen to have enough knowledge to know like the Campbell's family dynamics the family owned half the company and they were five families because it was third generation. You know you multiple generations. That's right trick. And we were headquartered in the poorest most dangerous city in the United States Camden New Jersey. Challenge seventy five thousand people seventy murders a year and we were. We were running soup company. I mean our products have been invented in the prior century and was unchanged and I was saying I was talking to folks and I said well. Don't we need to evolve and I said you don't understand? We can run canned soup faster on our lines than anybody else you like. I said you know. But don't we need more and they said but but we run our canned soups really fast. And so we evolved but the company Highlight for you personally in that decade. If I'm saying to you in that ten year window hot tate you know hit strike. We talked earlier about your resume and eulogy. That came together for me. I showed up more authentically during that era in in that era. Actually the last five years at NABISCO. I started to mature. I found my sea legs. I developed the courage of my convictions that I probably hadn't had before but being challenged at KKK. All the time and the people around there five years in I sort of hit stride and said you know I can do this so for you and and then so at Nabisco and then a Campbell.

How much is relationship with that bursting? Losing Self Esteem Self Awareness. How many of these you know that's all I mean. It's all part of this is complicated. If it was not complicated everyone would have been figured out already. So you know and the key to this book is and all those other books it takes. It's like a diet after the holidays. Have Your you say I'm going to lose twenty pounds and here we go. My wife and I are going to start a diet. We lasted about two weeks. And we say this never gonNA work.

Swamped hundred percent swamped right. It's believed they say. How do I fit this? People have one hour's worth of work feeling swamped and I want to kick them in the face. I know it's true.

Don't be scared to ask you a question from your perspective because I think it really matters can help you know from your perspective as as this book was written what what stood out to you. What was an Aha for you? Maybe going through the process which I think sometimes happens. Or what was your ambition or as you were listening debating and conjuring up with Doug when you now look at this as a finished product. Where do you go with like? Oh I'm really glad this happened. Where the process or I'm excited to see this group of people absorb this. I'm excited some random thoughts on that. Front yes tiffany. He's was anchoring this story in that moment of Doug getting fired because it brings somebody with such gravitas down to Earth. Yes and relatable yes and it really is the story of the worst day in.

Cracking the Leadership Code | Alain Hunkins
"All right. Let's get to our interview today. I am speaking to somebody who's been working for over twenty years as an executive coach and as a trainer as a seminar leader with hundreds of top executives around the world fortune fifty companies all over the world very diverse background. He's written his first book. It's a gift to us. It's called cracking the leadership code cracking the leadership code. What I love about this book is that it is extremely practical. So this is an inspirational. This isn't just opinions or some academic model. This is how you break the patterns that you might have. Because he's seen it in all of these clients over the years. Our guest is Alon Hawkins. Welcome to the lead X. leadership show. Thanks so much. It's great to be here with you today. So I mentioned you know in the in the intro. You've got a brand new book cracking the Leadership Code. Congratulations why now. I decide to to put down your wisdom into a book well for me. This journey has been one of twenty three years of working with thousands of leaders around the world. And what I started doing. I was watching and I saw these patterns of behavior and both the good stuff and bad stuff and I started taking notes and the notes became stories and the stories became blog posts. The blog posts became chapters. The chapters became parts and ultimately led to this book which is really in some ways. The distillation of twenty three years of experience of really getting into the INS and outs know everyone wants to be a great leader. But what does that really mean and ultimately I think it boils down to the mindset. We have and the choices that we make and so the book is really this. Comprehensive Guide to helping people accelerate their learning curve to become a better leader. You said a couple of Actually really important things there and the first of which you you you just gave away one secret to writing a book which is don't think about writing a book thinking about writing a blog post and then another at another exact. I had a great mentor once and I and I've been thinking about writing a book. I know lots of people have. I have been thinking about writing a book for twenty years and I had a great mentor. Profoundly obviously wonderful thing he said writers right and I think the discipline of the blog and for me it became it became it was really messy at the beginning really messy and not very good but really giving myself the discipline of one post a week and then sticking to that and I did that for years and that started to develop the discipline of writing and the other thing you know you mentioned about all of the work you've done. All the clients have is seen patterns of behavior. And that's what I try to tell people like everybody wants to be a great leader. We have. We have usually the intent to be a great leader. Sometimes we have the knowledge of a great leader but its sometimes tough to see our own negative patterns or to create new habits and patterns. And that's one of the things I liked about. Your book is not only is it? I mean this is actionable. This isn't your inspirational. Climbed down the mountain leadership. Now this is like do this and keep doing it you know and look out for these pitfalls but before we get into these behaviors you say in the book that old school leadership has stopped working. So what maybe was old school leadership in? Why is it stopped working? Yes so if we think about what is old school leadership you know. I saw this great quote recently and I. I don't know who it's from. But they basically said that. Tradition is peer pressure. That comes from dead people and I just love that. Okay if we think about some of the traditions that we around leadership if we go back a few generations you know we this all started this whole idea of leading in organization started in the industrial revolution and the world was so different than and the people who are in charge of figuring this out. Were were engineers mechanical engineers. Who saw work as this mechanical problem to be solved and that's where the term human resources comes from because humans were seen as parts in a bigger machine. I mean humans. Were not your competitive advantage. The factory was and your big factory machines competitive advantage so people again back this time. Ninety five percent of people were doing manual labor and I get into all this history in the book even it in greater detail but because people were treated that way it was all about controlling and managing people and the belief was that people were not to be trusted. And so there was this cauldron of fear and control. And that's what people put up with for a really long time because part of the value proposition back then was if you're a good worker and kept your your head down and just did your job and just shut up. And you're told you have a job for life and you probably have a pension on the other end as well as we know that world has gone away and so if we look at you know today fifty. Nine percent of the workforce is Gen Y. and Gen Z. And people are craving new type of leadership because what we know that align between work and life. There's no more work life balance. It's all one thing it's your life and so people are craving work in organizations that have a clear sense of purpose and they want leaders. Who are going to connect with them at a real human empathetic level and they want people who are going to communicate with them to be authentic and they want to work on collaborative teams. Add more and more people are working in a team environment and they want transparency to be able to do that. So it's like the playbook has changed and leadership needs to catch up because the rules of the game no longer apply the old rules. Don't apply anymore and Elaine I. This is the week that I've been doing a bunch of interviews with A lot of thought leaders such as yourself and I am hearing this recurring theme. Which really shows that you know. We need to pay attention to take action on this. Yesterday I spoke to two Doug Koenig former. Ceo Campbell. Soup and big proponent of employee engagement and he was making the same point and of course he's got a few years even on us in terms of variance and sure in wisdom and he talked. He's he said you know back when it was just about you know. Industrial Revolution came. Maybe I q and some other things when it became about relationships. Then it's the the issue and he said the same thing though that now the newest generation it's about this you know this this Needing some some mission and some motivation you know from a deeper level. It's like a whole new world even beyond just like. Oh we got how to work on a team and you Sorta gave away one of the I. I'm always forgetting so. I like simple models. And and yeah. It's your book. I'm telling people you gotta read this about the three Cs and you know you hinted at them. You Know Cassian communication collaboration and in a short format. Podcast like this. We can't get to deepen anyone but let's let's touch on them and let's start with with connection and you right. That empathy is really the basis for connection. Tell us more about that sure. Yeah we get into connection. Let's let's step back for a quick moment. What is leadership leadership at? Its core is a relationship. It's a human relationship between the person who leads the person who chooses to follow and so at the core of that is got to be human connection. And that's what empathy is and my favorite definition of empathy is. Empathy is showing people that you understand them and care how they feel and on the surfaces. You hear that we can all step back and go get it makes complete sense but actually in the moment when we're all running too fast with too much to do and we're not only leading but also having to get our own projects done empathy can get short shrift and in fact in the book go through six different challenges that people face to leading with empathy. I'll just give you an example of one. One is impatient right because the fact is to really care how people feel means I need to give them my undivided attention in my presence for a while and I got so much else going on. It's really hard to do that. So I go through six different challenges and then I talk about some of the things. We can do simple actions that you can take to become more empathetic and strengthen your connection with people. An example of that is to listen with purpose is very different to listen to someone. Just okay go ahead tell me get it got it good. I hear what you're saying versus really listening with purpose to seek to deeply understand where they're coming from and their perspective because the fact is there's nothing like being heard and valued and understood that makes people feel connected right at our core. We all WanNa be seen recognized and valued so if we want to lead. We need to understand that. Is THE FAST TRACK CONNECTION?

"campbell soup" Discussed on Snacks Daily
"PC stories? Because I'm GONNA throw a little garnish on Jack over there Campbell. Soup to shockingly jumped ten percent because soup is back in the main reason. This dot jump is Corona Jahn expiration date. Twenty forty two patios. They're back in style. They're perfect as like disaster relief. Food you stock your basement with these three hundred eighty dollars at Safeway. The other day at least fifty of them were on Campbell's soups. Hey Campbell Soup Biz DEV team. Jack and I have a wonderful idea for a first aid kit for food. Yeah team up with their buddies over a blue apron. Who desperately need it right now? None of us millennials have like you know three weeks worth of food. We WanNa Three by three foot box of stuff that doesn't expire for like three generations army style. But let's talk about the twenty ops. What is the hell? What's generation Ists referred to the time between two thousand and two thousand two thousand ten in two thousand Jack and I our generation as we call them as the time between two thousand two hundred during that period. We call an also the soup pot. Oh it was nasty. Millennials are drinking juice cleanses and smoothies not bulls of condensed sodium. Yeah apparently the weapon. Here was Asai. Ball's juiced sodium version has like eighty grams or so. Wait or I'll have the sodium with a side of chicken noodle hold the broth knackers get this Campbell's soup. Sales have fallen for eight of the past. Nine years and grocery store managers notice that so they were taken away shelves that were once reserved for like that Primeau Campbell. That's a sad moment campbell soup. When you're no longer have like I'll say that can was an icon. I think it was like the Halloween costume. Nineteen ninety-six but wait. There's been any sign of turnaround last quarter. There was a soup surge for Campbell soup. We're talking soup search and just in case you're wondering when we mean by surge we're talking a one percent increase in sales. Yeah but for Campbell's soup. They gained market share in the food category for the first time since two thousand seventeen. Oh my cat. Absolutely this is big are in like a thirty year coma and you just saw like the finger twitches. Didn't you get here percents? It's moving but one of the proudest moments was when the CEO shout specifically to tomato soup chicken noodle and cream of mushroom for their strong performance of the last three months side note. Pretty amazing that Campbell. Soup publicly traded company. It's an impressive thing. By the way. A lot of that bump was paid marketing. Advertising was up seven percent last quarter they actually spent two hundred thirty eight million dollars on ads but the other part was actually take away. So Jack what is our takeaway for our buddies who creamy over at Campbell Soup. Let's all shift. Our interpretation of what? A millennial is so true because millennials are becoming heads of households smackers. Here's the key quote from the CEO. I we are attracting younger households but then Mr Klaus went on to say frankly. That's a trend. Many believed not possible literally the CEO of Campbell's soups looking at. What just happened to Campbell Soup? And he can't even believe. Sales turnaround. Believe that millennials are buying his soup. But it's happening Campbell. Soups knackers is an indicator of a very interesting shift are becoming a generation of family members..
'Smoke in the Cockpit' With Greg Soter
"Gregg welcome to the there. I was podcast. Thank you Richard. It's a delight to be with you. I appreciate the request. I do want to warn our listeners. This particular incident does involve a fatality and so You know we may deal with some sensitive subjects as we go on so please be aware of that. Do you mind Greg. Sharing with us The events of those day in that one seventy two and tell us what happened. I'd be happy do things Richard couple of years ago. In the spring of the year I had been invited by a local High Tech Company. Here in Utah to fly for them. They manufacture factor very sophisticated radar gear. That has to be tested from the air and they owned a couple of older well experienced well seasoned one seventy twos and and basically what they have their pilots dues. They had taken all the backseat equipment out the seats and so forth and stacked their gear in the backseat area luxury and they would periodically have pilots go up and flight test tracks to test their radar. which has had to be tested from the air it typically that have applied it left seat of course and one of their engineers most typically a non pilot in the right seat and we would go up and fly I track after track after track. these were pretty challenging tracks. You have to keep the position to the airplane Within dozens thousands of feet so that was a little bit challenging but beyond that they were just absolutely mindless well. One morning. June gorgeous gorgeous late. June morning I had been asked to go out and do one of these flights for them so got out to the airport Pre flighted both planes. Since I didn't know which the two I was going to be fine and while I was waiting for the engineering crew to get there and Ended up flying one of the planes Got The equipment On the plane and hooked up up and tested ready to go feel the plane to full fuel and got off the ground and headed down to a little place in the nearby mountains. Utah's generally early mountainous area and We were assigned to go down. Probably I don't know fifty sixty miles away from the Spanish Spanish Work Airport. Where would you parted and to fly these tracks you mentioned? These tracks are very specific profiles in terms of altitudes tatooed headings and perhaps air speeds even and your whole job is to fly these as precisely as you can so that they can measure the accuracy of the reiter later on board is that is that what you're doing that is exactly true. Drove me nuts. I mean I'M A. I'm a reasonably good pilot but I had not been used to maintaining headings and position and so forth within dozens of feet but they've got pretty sophisticated. GPS gear there to to show you where you need to be and yeah so very very precise trout interesting okay. We had been flying I just North South tracks and then or being circular tracks we'd been flying nine for oh I guess Yearly two hours and the engineer in the right seat said Greg we've got smoke in the cockpit Pitt. And that certainly caught my attention. I looked down between my legs and Sure enough there was smoke laughing up Under the seat between my I feed and his feet. No I'm thinking through a one. Seventy two and down on the floor of a typical one seventy two. There's nothing there that would would create an electrical fire. There's no real wires running underneath there to my knowledge is that correct that is correct and let me add to that my first action that I remember taking was reached over and of course in one seventy to go on the speed we were going. You can open the windows Heasley enough gorgeous summer day so I Often my window on the left side and reached over open his window and I also opened. The little soup can vent. I called the Campbell Soup. Net up at the wing root on my aside and that did a very effective job of evacuating the smoke. So that was first thing and I don't remember a time during this whole incident when I smoke accumulated enough to create visibility problems inside the carpet and now at that time were you able to discern was it. Electrical will smoke. Was it engine related smoke. You know the difference between engine related usually black smoke electricals typically light-colored smoke any of that going through your mind were able to. I select what the smoke was and where it's coming from absolutely I. As soon as I had the vending issue dealt with that took me probably a second to second something like that. I look over my right shoulder to the back of the airplane because there was nothing coming up around the firewall but I looked over my right shoulder to the back. The plane rolled. The electric equipment was and Dang I look back there and there was a great big open flame on top of their equipment. Wow you could see that did you can actually see the flame. Oh it was probably six to eight inches high and maybe three to four inches in diameter just burning away just burning away like a little campfire campfire at some point. In time I had been taught if you have got an open flame in an airplane I order business is get that that plane on the ground right now that. Yeah so that thought occurred to me and and this next part. I'm a little embarrassed about but My the first impression was to turn north and head back to the airport from which we had departed which was probably. I don't know ten minutes away. Something like that and I had actually started the north turn and then immediately I thought to myself soda. That is a bad idea. You could easily be a a flaming torch by the time. You got back to Spanish fork to land this thing so I've been in that idea again in about a second and a half then my next Idea was that well. I'm getting this plane on the ground so I started looking around for an emergency landing spot. Couple of factors actress entered into that We were in some Pretty pretty significant foothills I. I won't call them. Mountains back year amounting to us is ten or twelve thousand feet high but these were pretty significant foothills and as I looked around to find the emergency landing spot. I didn't see anything that I thought was appropriate. Appropriate looked left. Looked right now now nothing there. Nothing there of course they still had power no problem there. But because I couldn't spot got a place that I thought was suitable. We had a two lane highway immediately. Below us is highway. Eighty nine and I hit also always been taught that off road or better options than on-road because Traffic of course and be possible. The power lines. Well I'd never had this experience ever had the choice or opportunity decide. Well do I land on the road or do I land somewhere else but given that there were no obvious places elsewhere. I decided well eighty nine. It is that's where I'm going and I'll take my chances. In retrospect I went back down to that but I've been at that site on several occasions since and have looked around and stood there and looking said well Greg you know you could landed ended there you could land it over. There could landed here there and That's Monday morning quarterbacking. I guess but I in retrospect if they're probably worth some places I could have landed might have You know done some pretty serious damage to the plane but not nearly as serious as what turned out to be the case. Yeah the the great difference being you came back when you were at zero nuts one g and all the hindsight available to you without the stress of being airborne in an opened fire in your airplane so a little different situation to assess all the factors that were in front of you in such a short period of time. Thank you Richard. That was very generous. Assume you well you know. I do think it's a hallmark of aviation one of the things that we've seen time and time again on this podcast. Is People like yourself come in an regardless of how well they handled it and the situation ended up. They'll go back and say you know what I could have done what I should have done and I think. That's so admirable admirable and such a powerful part of aviation that no matter how well we do or how we fly. We always go back and debrief ourselves to perfection. And I think it's one of the reasons why we've just continued to progress and become safer and safer jelly aces. That's a big part of our culture. Well I agree and Going back to Being in the air with this open flame in the cockpit after I decided that I was going to land on eighty nine. I decided well I'm GonNa do a quick quick little Mayday broadcast I hear so I quickly dialed up one. Twenty one five and did a mayday call outs in Our number location the fact that we had a fire on board and I was intending to doing -mergency landing was extremely comforting to have some southwest pilot respond immediately to my mayday call. Don't know who that guy was. But he's brother and I love him and I'll I'll thank him forever for Make can hit response and I as I recall he said he would notify center or notify. ATC TC so as soon as I was over I decided okay. I'm I'm done with radio. It's time to fly this airplane. I'm guessing that I was probably at about fifteen hundred yell at that point in time when you first notice the flame or probably I think I was at two thousand when I first noticed the flame. Okay and by the by the time I had Discovered what was going on. You know started my turn that I aborted and made the the mayday call. I'm and this is I guess I I wish I had better memory of the details of this but I'm thinking I was at about fifteen hundred assuming I would have descended and maybe five hundred feet a medic. That gave me three minutes to deal with this whole situation Hey you know that in one sense that's a long time

Those poor elves and Amos of resources it was pouring its efforts and money into treats that have sweeter returns on investment from pop tarts to Pringles Kellogg. I started shopping the brands in November it's been trying to figure out how to spur Americans lagging appetites for snacks from big old brand names. In fact, it's been a rough patch for most consumer packaged goods companies. According to NPR, young shoppers, simply aren't brand loyal the way baby boomers were for Kellogg. That means the Keebler name no longer pools. It's weight as American shoppers are increasingly avoiding processed foods Kellogg in its competitors. Are pulling their hair out at least sixteen consumer packaged goods CEO's had left their jobs between twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen the Wall Street Journal reported presumably. They were failing at or exhausted from trying to kick start growth, but if it were just the shift toward healthier food that was hurting cookie sales. Why would Herero be sweetening? It's own desert portfolio apparently will still indulge plenty, especially if the quality is high for railroad specializes in improving tired brands in February and relaunched Nestle's one hundred year old butterfinger candy Barr with more chocolate and no hydrogenated oils.

Like where are we going to get the ingredients that go into culturing, these cells heart of the downstream values based affects is what's going to happen to the people who currently are ranchers are farmers. So well, it seems like it makes a ton of environmental sense to switch over completely as with every technology. Right. It has a lot of unintended consequences. It does have unintended consequences and part of the bid about unintended consequences is that you don't always know what they're going to be. And I think one of the goals here is to have scandal up. That's. Affordable. So that this doesn't just become food for rich people, and that it instead provides food for everyone at what point do you think? I mean, it's hard to predict. But at what point do you think that tipping point could occur? I think it's really going to be depending on on the technology. That's used to scale up and to ensure that you can get the price point down to a reasonable level. And the way to do this is not necessarily an immediate switch from one to the other. But rather a series of little steps where we slowly start moving from traditional ways of providing high protein food to people to more novel ways, but not necessarily in one single jump. Lewis Rudin co is a visiting scholar in emerging technology at MIT now if you wanna compare plant based burgers beyond meat and other meat replacement company as burger in Carl's junior as of last month called the beyond fair. Famous star burger blind taste test. Anyone I would get it. I will get it again. And now for some related links venture capital investment in food tech is up into the rights over the last five years or so according to the analytics firm CB insights as of mid twenty eighteen food and drinks startups had raised about nine and a half billion dollars. And there are new venture capital funds popping up dedicated just to investing in food tech like stray dog capital, new crop, capital, and Tara capital and big food companies are also creating corporate funds last October the Kraft Heinz company launched one hundred million dollar venture capital fund to invest in food tech, Tyson Foods and the Campbell Soup company. Also have funds or investment in emerging technology lake meat replacement, but also in things like tracing the food supply chain for safety purposes. And actually, even though we talk a lot about what I like to call Petri meat when it comes to beef experts told us that coming up with fish replacement is almost more urgent raising. And feeding cattle is really terrible for the environment. But overfishing is a crisis. Like, we're running out of fish right now. The Wall Street Journal had a good story last fall about attempts to create fish alternatives using everything from tomatoes for a sushi like product called he me to eggplant carrots and root vegetables mixed with p protein. He's like the bean. Look don't think about the pea protein think about saving a poor little fishy. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

No, one knows more than faith corn, whose company brain reserve has really changed the way people view, marketing, the way people view product. And she started this as a young girl in the middle of the seventies. She also did something interesting that I have in my hand called wishlist, but not two thousand nineteen two thousand thirty five it's her gift guide. So welcome. Thank you Joan. Now. Let's first talk what future ISM or a futurist is. Because when you started it, we all that you were not, and that's still true. Yeah. A future will in our in our case what we do is we consult with fortune two hundred we help them. See? What's ahead? So that what they're making is in the line of the future. We we take what they know how to do in future. Is it we re position their brands for next. You know, like if we work with Tyson. We say, you know, plan based this coming right big deal to they believe you when we did it know if he is John Tyson said, if you're gonna talk that way, I don't know if you should be working with us. So you know, that was a dirty. No, no. But over time we see and they bought a plant based veggie company. Yeah. So. We brought water to Coca Cola in maybe eighty two right? And I'm sure that all tough they want to know. But they don't want do. To do. And they don't believe. No. So we told coconut water is going to be the next green, and it's really important in shortages, etc. And they said if we launch water people will understand that coke made of water, and that would be good. We toll Kodak the future film. That was our assignment is digital. And they said, no, you know, that's impossible. We want the future film, not us. Right. You know, you telling us his digital. We told polaroid that they have to miniaturize that offering another polaroid cameras too big. And bulky, we we talked about, you know, the future being female for Pepsi. Where's the female product? We've repositioning given a lot of companies vision an application, we call ourselves applied futures. Which is which is very interesting. So just a few recent examples as the world is changing. Mean we're sitting here on a major radio station. But the world of media is changing around us. Yes. You know, we were the first ones to say people would be buying from the internet. Not from supermarkets would believe it. Right. And they laughed at us. Media is gonna be internal. In other words, you're going to get you're going to be able to tune in. But it's on the inside everything on the outside. Now is going to be on the inside. So you're attached to your phone the phones going to be inside. So when you see the ear pots first step next step there on the inside. So you're not going to be carrying it around. It's going to be no, no screens, you know, screen will be in the air. Elon Musk agrees that intelligence will be laid on your brain. And we can upload or download from. That says a chip. So we've been talking about ships probably for thirty five years language, chips intelligence chips, which will further divide the haves and the have nots chips are not going to be cheap now. But ultimately that will change as chips become internal chips. Right. And if someone had said to you. You're not going to drive your car. If you have a home out on these standard, Connecticut or something and you're dragging your bones every weekend you'd laugh, but you're going to get in your car, and it's going to drive itself. Yes. Wolves criminal wheelchair for the boomers. It don't have to drive can right. And second of all, you know, there's a lot you can do in your car. That's fun. But third of all I think that we're going to be traveling actually less. We're going to be at home. We predicted home offices along time ago, we work with IBM to develop the first home computer when we saw cocooning. Started. So yeah, nobody kids sunny one get driver's licenses. Chris. They won't and millennials. Don't want to buy homes. They are because they have the college debt because they can rent because they want to travel and have experiences and not get you know. Way down with a mortgage. They don't wanna have kids either. They just as you probably saw big story. I think in the times that we we're actually seeing a shortage. Good. Yeah. Actually, that's a global stack. Yeah. Because, you know, birth controls more accessible millennials don't get their actual. You know were self worth from seeing progeny, right which Jenner. And did right. You know, my kid is going to go to the best school and have the best. But then what is all this mean to millennials? How are they gonna find work? What are they going to be doing? Okay. The konami. They're gonna have five jobs now, which they are already have come work here. Nobody's gonna have one job in college. Has no value either. You believe that I do believe that. I think it's great. You know, if you're gonna take a liberal arts, it's like four years of reading, it's wonderful fun. But it's not gonna help you in your career, you work, and people aren't going to be looking for degrees going to be looking for a ability. Right. A gift or gift, right or a training. So education is gonna change. So what if you were lecturing to a group of just looking for jobs are coming out of a first job in changing? Where would you tell them to put their sights find a trade eight you really wanna do you know that you really interested in doing, you know, as far as the job goes? I mean, they're going to be a doctor's for computers like IT MD's. Yeah. That's something that could be any kind of delivery service. That's something we used to call take. Yeah. Hey now, you can call Google or any of these sites grub labs. Exactly grub up get delivery of restaurant in the city. Yeah. So cooking is over. We won't need kitchens. Is that true? Yeah. Cooking's over. I love kitchens, even if you never use it. Well, it could be a family room. But most they're going to take out. It's it's gonna be all customized delivery match to your DNA. Yeah. As a matter of fact, Campbell Soup company, recently that matches takeout food meal plans to what you need, you know, we're all built differently, and you know, from your own life. You burn calories differently your tasted different. So that I worked for Campbell's soup was one of my clients. I did of last night. I had leftover chicken, and I was making a chicken potpie 'cause in my house. We didn't get the message cooks. Hi, was mixing barrister that instead of making something like Martha Stewart would do throw it in the can of cream of mushroom soup which I had written about and talked about one hundred years ago, BB dano, high high sodium, very high everything, but it's actually pretty good. When you mix it all delicious and Medo soup is not good for you. Nothing that much is good for you. What are you going to see a what do you see Iran? Marijuana is good for you. I mean, all the edibles are coming. TVD using marijuana handshake for dogs slamming Tori for voices for dogs. I'm somebody used it for their kid was having like seizures, of course off label. But right it helped a lot. I think that we're gonna you know, we see the legalization of marijuana globally. So that's the next big thing is seeing it and drinks you're going to see an in medicine. You're going to see it everywhere. And it's going to be more curated. So right now, it's like if you came to like, you know, Italy like a thousand years ago sky is jumping on grapes. She go what is that? He goes it's wine, but they hadn't done Boesch yet or mcduck or different strains. And that's what's happened to marijuana is big and his gross marijuana. But what are the different strains, and how to apply them in who needs what and match it to you. Near you need or the time of day. So the DNA matching whether it's marijuana. Whether booed at Edison. Yeah. What's your body makeup? It's going to be the future. So, hyper customization can someone be a faith popcorn? Now. I was telling our produce Alexi that when faith and I I met. She will both in advertising and writing and doing a million face was a very young girl who in her twenties decided to start her own agents. He truly unheard of. It was a man's world then and she went out, and she did it can there be faced today. What are they going to start start to start something hopefully that people need or will need, and you have to be willing not to make any money for a while. I think I think women are starting businesses right now. I think the numbers twice the rate of men mainly because they don't fit into large format businesses. They're restrained and contained and it doesn't fit with their interest. If they're raising a family, you know, what they really want to be there. Subject to harassment, and if any discouragement that women don't really, I don't know. And they'd never get on your admit this. But you know, some many of my best friends or can be companies. They are not happy. I don't know one. That's happy ingenuity was happy because she was the boss is fantastic. But you mean, the ones who have big corporate jobs, but not the top job even not the top job. But anything above vice vice president, not happy, not happy. He didn't get anything approved. Can't go out to you know, a meeting PTA meeting. You know, not promoted at the same rate as men and salary in equality is still running rampant rampant, no accountability. So what's the answer? Start your own thing. Not easy. You did not that hard. If he, you know, one of the things I would have done differently is joining the few people who addition talents. I was creative. I should have gotten a business person. It would have been very, very helpful. So you know, and you can start something absolutely start something while you have your job. That's always talking about that earlier the way you have gainful employment. That's when you start he started, and you know, you have to be willing to work every single day. But you know, my grandparents were retailers you work every day. Your parents will lawyer parents were lawyers. They worked every day. My father was a criminal lawyer people don't choose the day. They're going to get arrested, right? Every day every night on my mother was negligence lawyer, I just think the idea of when when when people talk about separation of work in life. Israel's ridiculous if you love your work. You don't want to separate it from your line or should you? And if you love your life, you need to make it work within your work. So my kids came to my head my company in in my house. So my kids are sitting on my desk. And everybody's kids were dogs were in we integrated, but people stayed late. But I feed them, you know, sorry little break. And you know, I had nannies if they needed it or hit took stuff to the cleaners or when Christmas shopping for them in the early days when we get a bit Simon always on the nineteenth of December. Of course, you know, it's so possible, but people don't get a kick out of their work anymore. They're not like being joyful about. There were many of them will be pressured. I mean, yeah. Financial pressures are enormous. You wanna syndicate college and not a state college sixty thousand minimum at least. Yeah. How do people live and do this send them to a state college or getting debt? That's fine. Is it? It is fine. It is fine. Yeah. So what you know? And by the time your kids. Grow up starting now everybody there's not gonna be college. So then everything's online you go online college. Right. And what did you what do you see the future of real estate? We live in the greater. The city in the world. The for the first time in a long time real estate has fallen it always comes. All right. So my family's been in real estate since eighteen ninety or in a small they've gone through good and bad. Good and bad. It always comes back. Hang onto your real estate. So buying a house for a millennial is really not a bad idea as an investment if it will depends where it is. Isn't it this the what what are we say the littlest place on the best blog? Right. The worst house on the bed. Best street. Right. That's what you buy. And you know, what I did was I couldn't afford to buy a house when I bought my house New York, but I put my business in my house. So. Yeah..

"So we've got a nice little battle going on at Campbell Soup company. Right now, third point LLC. Dan, Loeb's hedge fund is trying to replace the entire twelve person board at Campbell Soup. Not just yadda board cedar pick up a couple here. And there they want to replace the entire twelve person board. First question is why second question is what's going on? Well, they're alleging that Campbell's failed to disclose or disclose some misleading information about their business, and my guests. Here is third points coming out with a very forceful strong point here, and then is going to back off a little bit. And but they're probably going to get a few board seats over. This would be my guess, why does third point want to control Campbell Soup? Presumably you get in there, and you cut costs across the board. That's generally what hedge funds looked to do. Maybe look at a sale even though this is a stock. That's down almost fifty percent in the last two and a half years. No one's not. No one's buying people are still buying Campbell Soup. They still have sales, obviously. But they're really struggling to make kind of inroads in a market where people aren't buying the same types of food products. They were even just a year or two ago. Right. It's you know, we've seen dramatic changes there. I think that's third points. Entire point though, is they're saying, look, you're bored. And you're management has cleared. They don't address changing consumer behaviors you need somebody from the outside to come in and change this company, and that's probably third points idea here. I think that this could be a pretty good and easy sale to a company like Kraft Heinz. Okay. Something along those lines. Yeah. I mean, I'm not saying that that's what's going to happen. But it would seem like it would pretty easily fit into that business model. I will say look, I'm not a big Campbell Soup fan in general. But there's something about their tomato soup on a on a cold winter's day with a little grilled cheese dipped in it that it's there's just something right about grilled cheese and tomato soup, but specifically Campbell's. Yeah. I'm Bora Progresso guy myself get at. Before we go to break. Can we revisit our revisit our poll question? There's a there's a story out today. Going to revisit the poll question wanted to talk about soup Tucker. Revisiting find talk about soup. Go. Okay. So there's a few new companies out there that are catering towards providing a ridesharing service specifically for minor children. And so the whole way they're doing this is it's the Uber, but they do a far deeper background check and have a number of different security measures in place. Personally, I at this point would not be comfortable with my kids getting into any of these services, unless I had personally met, and you know. Done a little bit of background checking on this person. That's driving my kids around. I'm not going to get comfortable with a third party background reporting website. I mean, that's obviously the biggest question is who the hell of his drivers pretty much, right? Yeah. And I mean, yeah, you can say that you do a background check. But if I'm not seeing the details, and if I'm not meeting this person face to face, they're not picking up a retired teacher or a guidance counselor or something like that shirt. Can I meet them? Oh, I would assume you can then I might be able to get okay with. I'm curious what they're doing now. So what is our actual poll question Tucker? And what are the results are poll question is would you use a ride sharing service? You know, like an Uber lifts type of setup to get your kids where they need to go and couple companies are already doing that not as big as it will burn lift because they don't allow eighteen or younger pretty much and so far. Seventy eight percent of our listeners agree with you Mike that no they would not let their kids use some sort of ridesharing service like this. And an interesting texts that we got earlier from nine seven eight we pick up grandchildren on early release days. Always a few drivers in the line for the pickup, which is. So if they're under eighteen how does that work, no idea? Interesting. I mean, perhaps it's just the parents not having transportation themselves and getting a number to pick up the kids. I don't know right regardless so far most people agree with me. We're going to take a break when we come back Paul lamonica from CNN business is going to be talking about take two interactive right here on the financial exchange..

"This is also going to be a gas tax repeal rally with many special guests, including Carl Demayo, and of course, reform California with plenty of signs banners. Whatever else you need. Join us tomorrow for the big six show in Anaheim. One of the more amusing sight stories I saw today concerning the caravan is Campbell Soup company. When I saw the headline Campbell Soup. Somehow involved. In the. Caravan story. Well, apparently, a company lobbyists circulated conspiracy theory on Twitter. That prominent democratic donor. George Soros foundation is financing the caravan of Central American migrants headed to the US border Kelly Johnston. A former top aide to congressional Republicans apparently made the social media posts. And he says that the migrant caravan includes unknown middle easterners all supported by Democrats. Claiming the guys pushing soup now Johnstone is the executive vice president of government affairs for Campbell. He tweeted that Soros is open society foundation planned and is executing the migrant caravan, including where they defecate which is a startling revelation. If it's true. They've they've planned to organize the whole trip including where these guys take a dump. I I was wondering about that. Because the idea that thousands of people can migrate for weeks and weeks and weeks, and they're going to ask the question where do they go to the bathroom? Where's the food drink are they telling their own porta potties where were they were they pooping because wouldn't they will go into towns and villages and probably use the restrooms seven thousand of them or ten thousand or fourteen thousand there's different number every day whenever the number. Somebody has to be bringing a truckload of food and water. You're these little villages can't serve fourteen thousand people didn't they leave with provision like big backpacks who what for six weeks worth I. Yeah. Yeah. This whole caravan idea. Oh, it is Chris right? And the thing is George Soros does finance lots and lots of these left-wing groups now he doesn't personally decide how they spend their money. Personally, we run the caravan. But if you look at the groups involved in this stuff, there's usually a big check from one of his groups or it starts with one of his groups and goes to a second. And then and then this passed down to third, but, but the this costs a lot of money, and there aren't that many people will have this kind of money and are willing to spend it and are willing to spend on these kinds of issues. So I realized his name keeps coming up, and it sounds like it's become an urban legend. But there is some truth to it. And there's right wing guys who do this too on the other side because yes, they do they got a ton of money, and they're kind of bored. So they want to have an effect on the world. But Campbell just wanted to know they had nothing to do with the tweet, and it has been deleted because people will start boycotting their soup. On the soup cans off the shelf. Now what's weird about this? This this caravan allegedly is headed to Tijuana and story I'm looking at here is that they are already overwhelmed there with families and unaccompanied minors looking for asylum in San Diego. This is before the caravan gets there. What are they gonna do when seven thousand more people show up and they're waiting to get into the US because it's a slow process. Here's what's this. This is why this is a design stunt because then they're going to go into all these detention centers. And then you're gonna end up with families getting detained or family separated from the kids. And that starts big political ruckus against Trump. Right. Because there is no way to deal with this kind of low to people there just isn't and most of them as you pointed out earlier ninety nine percent are denied their asylum claims. The last caravan most of them didn't get fake asylum claims these people are not running for their lives. They're not. There. They've been hired basically and manipulated and exploited by these left-wing groups in order to try to create a ruckus right at November election time, and these groups hope it breaks the Democrats way. Yes. Well, they think it's gonna work like the separation of families border did if they bring seven thousand people to Tijuana and their stories as reported by the media is that they're hot they're tired. They're fleeing violence in their home countries. How can heartless Trump turned them away? Well, they that's what they're looking that was one of the few moments this year that they had Trump on his heels and the separation of the parents was one of the. Yeah. Yeah. Changed course on that. He wrote a new declaration probably lost a few points in the polls, blah, blah, blah. So they said, okay. Let's try this trick again. Remember what he decided that they're all going to be detained together? Yeah. Separate families. But we're not just let them go. They don't what what they're trying to do is is gained political control. And they're using these people. They don't really care what happens to kids and the families air what they want is power. The Democrats want power just like the Republicans or any other political party anywhere in the world. They'll use any trick exploit anyone manipulate voters emotions it's a game to them. So this is good money to spend. What else are they going to do? They've only got two weeks left. They got their heads handed to them with the cavenaugh verdict. And you know, this is one of these last ditch hail Marys now, maybe they can go Trump into doing or saying something stupid that moves the polls a couple of points. Just a big game. Currently the office responsible. For visas is severely backlog after being destroyed in the 2017 earthquake in Mexico City. This is a on the Mexican side. Right. Even though the visa gives migrants. Only two weeks many been waiting in Tijuana shelters for more than forty days with no plans to leave the country until their number is called by US officials, and again is a story in the El Segundo time says asylum is really not a great way to cross the border because most are not granted asylum. Get it most are likely returned to their country from which they fled. The US denies entry of migrants from Mexico and Central America, particularly Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras at a higher rate than other countries, including India, China and countries in Africa. You have to meet a strict legal standard to claim asylum. Right, and what they've done, and of course, the idiots in the media amplify it. They claim that Honduras, and El Salvador, and Guatemala are so racked with violence and terror, and poverty, and it's it's not a rich, these aren't rich countries. But it's not that bad. It's not bad enough that most people can claim asylum. It just isn't exaggerated. It's like everything else now hysteria. Right. Remember, Jeff Sessions talked about this a few months ago with this idea there's some of the people coming and the media, of course, highlight some where women who claimed they were victims of domestic violence, and Jeff Sessions said we can't solve all the problems other countries. We can't expect us to take on everybody's domestic family problems. And how would we know if that's true? How do we know? That's not just a ploy to try to get sympathy for an asylum claim. Yeah. No. We don't know if any of this is true. You don't even know if these women are married or not if they're actually living with anybody. You don't know if the guy actually did anything and why even if he did that that's just a fixation for us to take them in as an immigrant. So every crime victim in the world has has has a chance to be admitted here. Why would we how would we do that? We got more coming up, including a little more information on the story. You talked about this hour with Orange County district attorney, Tony ricochets. Apparently, the media is going to get to hold onto these search warrant documents in the case of that surgeon who's been charged along with his girlfriend for drugging and sexually assaulting a lot of women coming up.

"campbell soup" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Soup Campbell Soup embroiled in an ugly battle with an activist investor who accuses family owners of the board of a reign of error. And this is getting even uglier Peggy and activist investor putting out this YouTube video. Bad. Oh, Peggy why can't they just get along? This is getting to be quite siemian here to tell us more is Scott to bow. Our Bloomberg news reporter in the New York studio, Scott is this unusual to have an ad out there by an activist hedge fund manager. No, this is something that they do quite often. Actually, this is this is the way the target retail investors because what they'll end up doing with this ad as it'll go on banner ads on Facebook. And you know, and then those little side things that you see like on Twitter and whatnot. And what they end up doing is getting a shareholder list essentially targeting those shareholders, those retail's shareholders. So there's. There's a higher likelihood like there's a likelihood that they'll actually see the ad, okay. The the battle here of Campbell Soup of Camden, New Jersey. New Jersey, the family members on the board are finding with the activist investor who wants to unlock value unlocking value at Campbell Soup. This goes back for a quite a ways. Yeah. And I think like the easiest way to describe it. And I think that's the way it third points boiled it down to if you invested in dollar in Campbell Soup twenty years ago, you'd have a dollar and twenty cents. So. Third point being the activist investor and Dan Loeb. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. So they you know, they broken down quite a bit. Their arguments are essentially that it's a stagnant board to the members on the board, which are part of the family of the founder of the company have been on the board for thirty years. But the family itself phones. About forty one percent of the common shares. So it makes very difficult. Yeah. Recently, they they collectively said that they were going to vote in favor of the company slate. So that makes it even more difficult for Dan loves their point to replace the entire board is seeking. So basically, they're saying we're we don't want any of our current board members. Whether they've been there for decades or not to leave. Yeah. That's right. So it's not just the family that's kind of solidified. It's also the board and management, and they've you know, they've become this unit to to battle against third. Okay. So what happens with the? Owned a couple of shares of candle soup will be getting a call from somebody who runs a proxy battle for Dan Loeb. Yeah. And you'll get probably get a call from somebody on Campbell's side too. So what's going to happen is the you'll get essentially to proxies? Sent you. One will be Dan lobes and one will be Campbell's soups, and you're only meant to fill out one. So if you send that in. That that will count towards the company total or the third point. When is the big vote, November twenty ninth and this area of food. Is this something that Loeb has been in before in terms of disrupting know food companies we've because we've seen them be under attack in different ways. Yeah. I mean, this the consumer space is kind of an easier target for activist because there's a brand recognition on things like this. And so you know, we've seen. John was in pinnacle foods. Conagra as well. You know, they're in Jack in the box. Now, this is not it's not unusual to go after something that has a big brand recognition because part of that is that people pay attention. You know, when you hear Campbell Soup is under attack by an activist investor you probably more inclined to pay attention than save some obscure company that you've never heard of is being targeted wanna do with Campbell Soup. Essentially what he wants to do is refresh the board. That's that's his first priority. And after that he wants to make sure that Campbell's stays ahead of the curve and not behind it. Because that's his large criticism is that they've had to make a series of very large acquisitions because they've fallen behind the trends in the industry. So obviously was the trend in the soup industry. Healthier. Your healthy alternatives. They bought Snyder Lance, which was essentially just buying a company that had organic broth, right? But you know, you paid billions of dollars for it. So it's you know, it's one of those situations where you should be able to you know, I'm Canadian. So what they say is, you know, skate whereas towards where the puck is going to be. And hockey metaphor. Well, they do drink soup after her hockey, ice hockey games. I feel more more beer. But yeah. So essentially that's the criticism is that you know, everything that they've promised they've failed to deliver. They had their CEO step down earlier this year, no succession plan in place. So there was nobody there to replace her. And you know, they're still conducting that CEO search Campbell's or Progresso. Prefer homemade I. John tomato or cream of broccoli cream of broccoli. Oh, gosh. Scott. Thank you so much for your great reporting this week. I'm the ongoing battle between Dan Lewis third point and Campbell Soup. Thanks for having me. That's Scott devote. Bloomberg news reporter in New York. And just ahead on Bloomberg finance crypto goes.

"This is gonna sound like it's coming out of nowhere. But role with me here for a second last time. You went to a grocery store, what wound up in your cart the basics, of course. But probably not any Campbell Soup. Yes, it's still summer and hot, but not necessarily soup weather sales at the company's condensed soups have not been doing well, though. So not well, in fact that the hedge fund third point just launched a fight to replace Campbell's entire board of directors and sell the company outright. And it's not just Campbell's. It's getting squeezed a lot of packaged goods and processed food companies haven't been doing all that well either. But as marketplace's Justin ho reports that doesn't mean there aren't a certain kind of buyers. At her apartment in Brooklyn. Helen shore is boiling potatoes on a Saturday afternoon. She's making burritos to eat for lunch and the week ahead. So she's also prepped a bowl of cheese and some black beans and instead of tortillas she's using an Indian flat bread. It's a remotely Rhody, but it looks a lot like. Oh, and she's also prepping to other Espy's at the same time. She starts chopping up a watermelon to blend Margaritas next on our list Vietnamese summer rolls. I asked her to show me, what's inter pantry. I have black vinegar. Traderjoes dried wild blueberries because although dried fruits are pretty cheap. I have this. Awadhi tahini, which I bought at our actually at our local grocery store here. What's missing processed foods things like Betty Crocker, mashed potatoes, Heinz, ketchup or Pillsbury cake mixes, I never really by those convenience foods, like a cake mix it like any of that stuff? Because if I was going to make a cake, I would just make it from scratch shores thirty one, and it's people like her that have old school food brands worried Campbell Soup dissed reported a fourteen percent drop at soup division revenue last month. Kellogg said sales of its cereal or down to Brent Bichon is the CEO of a private equity firm called adventures. It certainly seems like no one's optimistic about these types of companies beyond just sort of their stability private equity firms like his amass piles of cash from big investors, and they use it along with a ton of borrowed money to buy up companies the companies they target are often stable, but have sluggish sales and falling stock prices, Donna hitches, the director of the private equity program at the Columbia business school. She says private. Equity firms look at food businesses. And like what they see. It's a space that you can understand. It's a space. That's probably not subject to a lot of Allah. Tila, ty- swings. In terms of the fact that we all eat, we all need food. This has been the busiest year for private equity in more than a decade in the number of private equity deals involving food is growing in July, the private equity firm Brentwood partners about the Pillsbury brand from J M smucker, the private equity giant are just bought Unilever's margarine business, which includes I can't believe it's not butter. Hatred. Says these firms aren't buying food companies for the delicious taste. They're buying the businesses in order to generate a return and the way that return is realized is by exiting the business and just like flipping a house private equity firms have to fix up the business. So they can eventually sell it at a higher price. That means using existing equipment longer selling off divisions, laying off employees. Survive food companies have been doing some shopping of their own NYU economist Caroline Dmitri, and I stopped by a Manhattan grocery store. Check out the shelves. She points out that the center of the store isn't all yellow five and sodium by sulphites healthier products are sitting there too. So let's see if we can find a Cascadia and farm product, which should be here. Somewhere is owned by general mills Dmitri says food companies like general mills have been buying up brands marketed as healthy stocking the shelves with them almost all of these natural products. And organic brands are owned by the legacy companies, but they're marketed under a different label. She points out another general product, any the MAC and cheese brand after years of private equity ownership. He's was scooped up by general mills in two thousand fourteen last year and executive called it the company's biggest brand the consumer still thanks have like Annie's has being, you know, something that anti started. It's a private equity success story, and if Annie's wholesome branding makes you feel.

"campbell soup" Discussed on CNBC's Fast Money
"Able to adapt to survive and thrive against faster growing food related rivals. At least for right now, it looks like the new food trade is outperforming the old food trade back over to you guys. All right, down Bank. In the newsroom question here, what was the last time Tim, you open cana- Campbell Soup. Let's see. Probably when I kick the slats out of my cradle. I don't know. It's been a long time. And when was the last time you ordered in. Free nights ago. All right. So does that encapsulates straight? No. I mean, I love Campbell Soup. That chunky stuff that you get the can opener. Yuping that stuff. Put it in for about thirty seconds. No, I don't put the cannon to microwave out the right person. Of course, the right person. They are turning a corner that trying to make it a more healthier food choice. And I'm sure we've eaten stuff from Campbell's that's not in that Campbell's jar or can I should say. So there's been, there's the sauces, there's this that foods. So there's a lot of other aspects then the one that we all know she and wolf. Yeah. I mean, listen, it's the changes where you're gonna make money in stocks. So when this company starts to turn things around, that's the unanticipated change. So now I've got an activist in there. They are potentially going to change things. So you know to me this value trait. Oh, see. How did that book. You're on your Campbell Soup to turn it around. I do it, I think, well, I think percents June, I think it's apples and oranges. Ultimately, this is the mechanism for possibly getting your tomato Kangai, but but ultimately, I think it tells you who owns the consumer is who gets the valuation and the multiple in grub hub while it seems silly. Ultimately, these guys clearly control the consumer you would rather I would rather play that game as well. We just there you go, don't fade. It's the wrong on this one out. They call them the people that get the grub that calm grubs. So. Listened to the, they call them the grubs drugs up thirty five percent year over year. So Tim's point the valuation on a price earnings multiple seems high, their growth in terms of grubs and other metrics, make sense. So I think you can actually stay with this little grubs live in my lawn. I wasn't. Campbell and being square has a food delivery business of its own. And that's one hundred and thirty three percent year to date still long. All right. Campbell's expected report earnings later this week in the options market is implying some pretty interesting moves on the results. Let's get to my coke in San Francisco with more, hey, Mike, there. Hi there. Yeah. So this was a name that did see double the average call volume today, and it's also implying pretty big move specially for consumer staple food stock, like Campbell's implying a move of about eight percent one way or the other by after they report earnings. What's interesting those we saw some longer dated call by and we saw a large purchase of the January forty, five call somebody paid a dollar and a quarter for five thousand of those. So that's making bullish bet that the stock is going to be higher than forty, five dollars, but at least the dollar twenty five that they pay that's up about sixteen percent or so from where the stock currently closed. And the other interesting thing I would point out about this from a price earnings perspective, Campbell's cheap on an enterprise value base. It's not as cheap because they've taken on a lot of debt and last couple of years. So I think using options to make a bullish on this because probably the best way to play it. Let's bring Mike in on this. Oh, sure. Non about sue. Would you rather Campbell Soup or grub headline. You know, I kind of like Campbell Soup simply because there is a bit of leverage on the balance sheet and there's room for improvement. It is trading relatively cheap on a price to earnings basis. Not a lot of things right now trading about fourteen times. And of course we're talking about Scott soup in the name, but it's only about a third of their revenues. So you know Cape Cod, chips, things like this. There's a lot of places where people are still consuming their products and they have room for improvement. And I think that's what Dan Loeb's playing for and that's why I would to. All right, Mike, thanks my colleague, San Francisco, really not a grub options action. Check out the full show Friday, five thirty PM eastern time up..
