No-Moat Tyson Experienced a Remarkable Third Quarter, but Shares Appear Fully Cooked

Analyst Note

| Rebecca Scheuneman, CFA |

No-moat Tyson reported 27% sales growth in its fiscal third quarter, as it lapped an 8% decline in the year-ago period driven by COVID-19 disruption. Sales were 14.6% higher than the comparable period in 2019. Stronger revenue was primarily driven by price, with the average wholesale prices for beef, pork, and chicken during the quarter 35%, 51%, and 11% higher than the three-year average, respectively, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
