3 Food stocks – Graincorp, Australian Agricultural Company and Costa Group Holdings
On track for strong FY17: Graincorp Ltd.’s (ASX: GNC) stock moved up 5.6% on August 30, 2017 driven by market sentiments. The group had earlier reported an EBITDA of $236 million in the first half of 2017 as compared to $134 million in the prior corresponding period (pcp), and consequently the underlying NPAT rose to $100 million from $32 million of pcp. The group expects to reach their full year EBITDA estimate of $385 million-$425 million and underlying NPAT of $130 million-$160 million. Growing Australian grain harvest and better export volumes, coupled with the group’s network efficiency efforts and managing costs have contributed to the robust result during the period. The group’s average receivals per site increased to 70,000 tons from 40,000 tons of last harvest, driven by a modern and efficient network through Project Regeneration. GNC is also enhancing their sales mix with a better focus on higher margin products. Better canola supply drove their oil supply with lower procurement costs. However, the company has highlighted that continuous pressure on its margins and unfavourable foreign exchange movements have been posing challenges.
