    CPB doesn't seem to have much cash and quite a lot of debt.

    I don't understand (well understand but do not accept as reasonable) the concept of a stock being "boring". Is Campbell Soup your friend or spouse? Is it a movie or a sporting event? There is only one reason to care about the vast majority of stocks: to make money. The company's products can be exciting or boring to someone, but if you look for "excitement" start trading in AMC or GME that are basically entertainment vehicles.

    I think Wall St. has CPB wrong, their Debt is now less than 4X operating income and Net Interest payments will be $190M per year down from $356M in 2019. Management has also authorized 5.5% of shares outstanding to be bought back and CPB is throwing off a 3.5% dividend. That's a 9% shareholder yield!!! This is a slow grower but 10X operating earnings is too cheap for a company who consistently posts 15% operating margins! I'm hammering the buy button under $45 all day stick this one in your coffee can and check back in a decade!!!

    I've owned SJM for 15 years. Cost basis: pretty much the same as CPB today. That puts the day-to-day fluctuations in perspective. What you want from this type of stock is three thing: no chance of going bankrupt, high free cash flow, and high return on equity. For the rest, just give it time.

    So they’re buying back stock to make the earnings look better . Couldn’t that money be used in a more productive manner? It’s called voodoo economics.

    Interesting. They are buying back $500MM in stock yet raising prices because of inflation. Hmmmm....

    Well I'm in for the first time, bought some yesterday at 42.01 and doubled it today at 41.06. It's now one of my largest positions as I really like the dividend yield, free cash flow numbers, and continuous debt reduction. Piper has just discovered that CPB is affected by commodity inflation? And the stock falls on that? Captain Obvious to the rescue! I think in times of inflation this is the type of stock you want to own as opposed to sell.

    I just saw the Smucker's interview (family)... he acknowledges post-CoVid startup COGS & D&A increases... all temporary, manageable & pipeline-related... Soup is "simpler"... especially for "professionally managed CPB"... ;)

    i looked on cpb company website and their products just aren't that enticing. i would say their soup actually stands out compared to many of their other products. cpb needs an overhaul. maybe they should get into hemp. how 'bout hash-tag brownies? how's that for marketing? or another possibility is a meal in a can. for example beef strogonoff or beef stew. you prepare the noodles or rice and just add in the meal from the can. people want easy to prepare meals. maybe i should email the company ... they need some guidance ..but first i will have a brownie or two...

    How well can CPB hold up in an inflationary environment?Producing higher quality product, may make it difficult for CPB to cut costs vs. cheaper brand competition?Everytime I go into a grocery store I look for bargains.
