Tyson's Lack of Moat Adds to Its Vulnerability to Near-Term Commodity Volatility Headwinds

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Kristoffer Inton |

Tyson primarily sells raw beef, pork, and chicken, although it has increased its exposure to prepared foods. Despite the scale it has amassed (with a sales base that exceeds $53 billion), meat is a commodity and carries little to no brand or pricing power, exposing sellers to volatility in both costs and revenue. Tyson’s strategy to sell three meats is intended to offer diversification. But diversification has its costs, and the headwinds of any one meat have weighed on companywide results at times. Additionally, we think there’s limited revenue or cost synergies across different proteins.

Company Profile TSN

Business Description

Tyson Foods is a protein-focused food producer, selling raw chicken, beef, pork, and prepared foods. Chicken and beef are its two largest segments, each comprising about one-third of U.S. sales. Prepared foods constitute roughly 20% of sales and include brands like Tyson, Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm, Ball Park, and Sara Lee. However, most of these are in product categories rife with competition where Tyson does not have a massive market share lead. Tyson sells some products overseas, but the international segment accounts for just 5% of total revenue. The company is an active acquirer, with more recent years’ purchases focused on international and food-service markets.
