The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. : S&P Capital IQ Picks ConAgra Focus Stock of the Week

03/18/2013 | 11:35am US/Eastern

NEW YORK, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ConAgra Foods (NYSE: CAG: $35) has been picked by S&P Capital IQ as its Focus Stock of the Week. CAG carries S&P Capital IQ's highest investment recommendation of 5-STARS, or Strong Buy.

"We have a generally favorable view of ConAgra's recent acquisition of Ralcorp Holdings, which was completed on January 29(th) of this year," said Tom Graves, equity analyst at S&P Capital IQ. "We think Ralcorp's strategic move toward private label products offers a long-term potential opportunity, and we look for ConAgra to have relatively little competition between its private label portfolio and its own branded products."
