Even as No-Moat Smucker Prioritizes Brand Investment, We Think It Still Lacks Crucial Brand Equity

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Erin Lash |

Despite having leading positions in many categories (fruit spreads, peanut butter, dog treats, coffee, and cat food), we believe Smucker lacks an economic moat, either via its brand assets or entrenched retail relationships. Our analysis shows that for most of its sales base, Smucker does not possess pricing power, and its market shares have slipped. This dilemma cannot be attributed to a lack of support, as Smucker’s brand investments exceed that of its peers (with marketing and R&D averaging 6.9% of sales the last three years versus 5.4% for peers). Rather, we suspect these expenditures are not as productive as its competitors, a problem not easily resolved, in our view.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
