Also a speech by Richmond Fed President Tom Barkin.

Food inflation. Stocks who benefit
At-home food costs climbed 8.6% and out-of-home costs rose 6.8% in February from a year ago.

The producer price index for food was up 13.4% in the year ended in February, with grains and the beef and veal category rising 20% or more.

So, who can benefit? Let's take a look

Reacting to the surge in food costs, Wall Street has stuck with its usual playbook. Businesses like restaurants and packaged-food companies that are absorbing price increases have been hit, while farm-equipment makers, supermarkets, and food processors are seen as beneficiaries.

Investors have warmed to supermarket chains Kroger and Albertsons in the past year: $KR is up 54% while $ACI is up 83%. Their margins tend to widen in periods of inflation as they raise prices more than costs rise and consumers trade down to more-profitable private-label products

Neither stock is expensive. $ACI trades for 12x proj. earnings in its current FY and $KR for 15x

The knock on them is that they are relatively high-cost retailers because of their heavily unionized workforces and over time they will be market-share losers to $WMT, $TGT and $COST

Either way, if inflation continues, you're not not going to eat and be more price conscious at the food isle.

Food for thought...

Upcoming Earnings Calendar (Jan 10-15th)
Earnings season starts next week! Here's what I'm interested in:

  • $TSM is the largest and most important semiconductor company in the world. It's a key supplier for $AMD $NVDA $QCOM $AAPL, so their comments on supply chain and industry outlook carry a lot of weight.
  • Several big banks $JPM $C $WFC report earnings on Friday. While I'm not invested in banks, their comments on corporate credit demand, credit card spending, etc. will give us a glimpse of the health of the economy.

Featured earnings for the week of Oct 18
Earnings season (finally) getting into full gear!

So many interesting companies announcing earnings next week. Here are is the Fincredible Featured list. View all here.

Here are some I own / or particularly interested in

$JNJ - very interested to see results in the medical devices segment. Specifically are their signs of closing the gap with $ISRG with their new platform and are elective surgeries coming back

$ISRG - flip side of the $JNJ narrative. I love it when competitors announce close to each other :)

$NFLX - international subscriber numbers

$T - update on discovery spin-off, dividend and 5G capex

$XM - $MNTV is my top 3 holding based on thesis they are making inroads in enterprise market, which $XM dominates. Big enough market for both but want some context.

A few companies like $PG on inflation numbers, but I suspect @awallis will be kinda enough to provide a MacroTalk update on this topic again
