Previous Perspective on Smithfield Foods, Inc. (SFD)

SFD reported Q2 adjusted diluted EPS of $0.61 versus $0.76. This was well above both our estimate and the consensus of $0.45. Note that adjusted results exclude a charge of $0.54 related to the early extinguishment of debt. The primary driver of the beat was much higher-than-expected profitability for the Fresh Pork and International segments that offset weakerthan- expected results for Packaged Meats and a loss in the Hog Production (HP) segment.
