General Mills Unhealthy Returns
"I'm Matt Greer and joining me is motley, fool, unless wrong gross Ron, it is just you and me in a word. How would you describe how you're feeling right now? So excited I could barely contain myself. Okay. Okay. Always happy to be here with you MAC. Well, good. Well, I'm excited to later. We're gonna talk some net flicks. They're losing the office. If you heard of the office show boy, my kids love them, some office, as do mine, and effective twenty twenty one the office will no longer be on Netflix. We'll talk about that. We're also gonna talk about some FedEx. But let's begin with a rough day for general mills shares down around five percent at the time of our taping on earnings. Ron disappointing revenue weakness in their US snacks business. Now, a lot of us when we think general mills we think cereal and, you know, the cereal cereal sales. In line with last year hanging in there. But they're not just cereal. They've got a number of brands everything from Haagen-Dazs to yo play to pet food, but they are running into this trend of consumers eating healthier, tough go, you got it. You know, it's interesting actually even with today's drop the stock was up twenty five twenty six percent on the year. I would not have guessed that if you'd asked me to, to kind of predict how the stock has done this year. So that was surprising to me, but you nailed it. It's, it's everyone's growing preference for healthier, breakfast and snacking options. It's hit all the companies Kellogg, wand, Elise Kraft Heinz. It doesn't matter who you are certainly general mills is, is not immune to that net sales organic net sales that's important in North America. Fell two percent. That sounds healthy though. That's our Ganic but importantly, because of their attempt to diversify and specifically the blue buffalo pet food company they bought last year. Total sales was actually up seven percent and they saw thirty percent increase in the blue. Buffalo pet business. So diversifying is is working. But obviously they want to grow some of their brands continue with some of their healthier brands a focus on Haagen-Dazs. Interestingly, not so healthy old, El Paso, Mexican their portfolio of natural and organic foods and their snack bars. They're, they're really trying to kind of focus on growing those businesses. So I think the question that everyone wants to know is where does this leave bugles because they I love entry, hopefully, you know, if you love you have you ever had. Carmel bugles. Oh, I don't think so. But when I was a kid, it was one of the most satisfying things to buy the bag of bugles. And then you pretend that they are, in fact, bugles, right? Let alone the child you needed Ave. Clearly. That was just salt and a bag. Why they were so good, crunchy salt and event is true in shockingly, not doing as well today with the health conscious consumer. So let's talk a bit more about the stock because as you mentioned, the stocks had a great last year beating the market. But it's lost to the market over the last five years and shares now trading below where they were five years ago and fun fact still outperforming Kellogg. Yeah. With wolf. Wolf wolf ESO? What's the bull case for general mills? The bull case, I think, is that they're going to continue to diversify through acquisitions, but that's dicey because that, that bull case also has a barriques right around the corner. It's tough to do aquisitions correctly. You wanna make sure you pay the right price. You might make sure you go into the correct areas, I think, part of the strength of general mills over lasts a bunch of months was partly the result of the diversification strategy. Blue buffalo being one the investors seemed to be excited about. But it's tough. I mean, the stocks. Our trading around sixteen times, not just Errol mills. But a lot of these companies, and there's a reason for that. And the reason is, is a lot of uncertainty going forward, and we'll probably still see weakness for some time until they kind of get their product portfolio straightened out. Okay. Ron and as we wrap up here looking back on your cereals, and they don't have to general mills that can be Kellogg, and they can be. But how about some favourite serials by far knock, Chem crabbing crunch is one of my favorites with crunch berries? No without contributes, actually. But foodie, pebbles are just unbelievably yes, love. Overrated. My guy was the Flintstones market. No. It was just the made. The milk fruity fruity ish. You let them get a little soggy of I gotta go. I might have to have them today. Okay. Let me hit you as some of my favorites and tell me how you come down apple jacks, boring. But my wife loves it really is fruit loops. Yeah. Like pretty pebble. Cousin count chocula now to chocolate for me to shot. Are you kidding? Get here is one of my favorites this was a sleeper frosted mini. We have it written down right here on my extra. So I wouldn't forget to mention it if you let them get a little bit Sigy fantastic. And you feel like you're eating wheat. So how bad could it be? Oh my gosh. And one of my truly favorites and I had probably a six to seven year relationship, it was a monogamous relationship here. Think about you needing a hobby, ready ready, golden grams. Oh, they're the Golden Globes are good for sure. I mean harsh their magic. It's a shame that cereal has, has gone, the way of the dodo bird because it's delicious, obviously, it's unhealthy. And that's why but even granola is delicious and milk. Everything is good. The for I'm gonna hit you with three over. Rated cereals. And you tell me if you agree ready? Yeah. Weeds god. Yes. They'll terrible Rice Krispies. They do crack snap, crackle, and pop feeling fun far after that, it's like, okay. And then Cheerios. Yeah. Oh my God. Like eating cardboard. Yeah. Honey nut Cheerios are okay. And then the one and then one more name. I wrote you get this on those other one more one more name. I wrote down and the word or the phrase, I have written by it is. I'm not dead yet. His grape nuts. I always when I was a kid I always associated grape nuts with like being older. And now that I'm older, I still associate with being have to be like, eighty to enjoy the exact. Yes. So I've got a few more years, but I'm looking forward to okay? Let's move on, after that hard hitting analysis. Let's move onto FedEx stock not doing much on earnings. Ceo, Fred Smith said trade disputes, and an economic slowdown have created quote significant uncertainty for FedEx express, Ron. Also facing stiff competition from UPS and Amazon as well. What do you think of FedEx earnings, the earnings are okay, but it's, it's the forward guidance about US China trade tensions, they forecast, a mid single digit percentage, point decline in adjusted earnings for fiscal twenty twenty investors. Don't like to see that, that I can tell you as far as this quarter adjusted revenue up two point eight percent operating income down seven percent though, negatively affected by lower package and freight revenues at FedEx express higher costs at FedEx ground cost associated with their US-based voluntary. Employment played by out the, the are voluntarily retiring, lots of employees there to cut costs. There was some strength though, US volume growth was up increased revenue per shipment at FedEx freight and FedEx ground some, some favorable incentive compensation expense. Decline. So there, there were some offsetting positives. But overall, you know, you don't wanna see a company like FedEx an operating income decline. And let's talk about the competition. Because when you look at FedEx when you look at the stock shares have lost to the market over the last year and they've lost to the market over the last five years, but they're still beating ups, okay? If you want to feel better, if you're go hang out with UPS right, but it seems like increasingly you've got traditional competitors like ups, but you also have the Amazons the Uber's you have anyone with a car who may essentially contract their time and their services out to a bigger company to deliver. How does FedEx compete with that, while you're seeing that it's tough? And you're seeing that in the stock price, they're doing things like making it more convenient for folks to drop off and pick up packages of perfect. Example would be. They just said, they're going going to create drop off and pickup sites at dollar generals, eight thousand stores what that does it puts ninety percent of the US population close to a FedEx full footprint of some kind. So they're trying to make it as convenient as possible their severed ties with Amazon for their express delivery service, the, they're making strategic moves, and sometimes. Difficult move, because as you say, it's very competitive landscape out there in Ron before we get to our next story. I want to say thanks to net suite now we know here at the motley, fool that if you don't know your numbers. You don't know your business, but the problem that growing businesses have the thing that keeps them from knowing their numbers is this Hodge podge of business systems. It's just a mess. You've got a system for accounting. You've got another one for sales. You've got another one for inventory. Yikes. It's so incredibly inefficient takes up a lot of time sucks up way too many resources and Ron, that's where net suite by oracle comes in.
FedEx Ground Announces Seven-Day Residential Delivery Year-round
"That is FedEx is going to seven day delivery, UPS six day delivery. It's going to take a while for UPS as a unionized operation to go to seven days. But ultimately, that's where we're headed is deliveries. All through the week, potentially every day of the year, maybe even on Christmas who knows. But the thing about these trends is they're mixed in with Amazon having announced earlier this year that they're going to deliver quite a few items in a single day for its prime members. Now, having roll that out on some merchandise, WalMart, having set it's one day delivery, and a handful of cities will be widely available later this year. There's another thing
