Kellogg (K) Surpasses Q3 Earnings & Revenue Estimates

Kellogg Company K has a balanced portfolio of cereal and snack products. Popular brands include Kellogg’s, Keebler, Pop-Tarts, Eggo, Cheez-It, Ready Crust and Kashi.

Kellogg has been struggling to drive sales over the past two years primarily due to weak performance by its cereal products in developed markets as well as soft U.S. snacks businesses owing to lower demand.

Investors should note that earnings estimate for K has moved down by 0.3% over the past 60 days. However, K has a superb earnings history, with the company delivering positive earnings surprises consecutively over the past four quarters, thereby bringing the average to a positive earnings surprise of 7.24%.

Currently, K has a Zacks Rank #3 (Buy), but that could definitely change following Kellogg’s earnings report which was just released. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
