Campbell Soup Company Research Report
Campbell's is seen to be another food company which could be part of a takeover bid after the recently completed $23 billion buyout of Heinz by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and 3g Capital last month, and is now taking a look at its own cost structure. The company says it will expand to higher-growth areas both in the US and abroad, and drive growth in its healthy beverages and baked snacks businesses. In particular, the company is pursuing external development opportunities in priority markets in Asia and Latin America, to increase capabilities and build scale. In the past, Heinz management also considered the buyout of Campbell, as indicated by Heinz chief William Johnson.

Unilever N.V. Research Report
Unilever grabbed headlines recently with British Prime Minister David Cameron's visit to India, where he visited the company's Hindustan unit, where he expressed his desire for India to open up trade further like how the UK did with the Asian country in the past. Unilever then responded with the announcement of a $65 million investment in its first Asian aerosol deodorant manufacturing facility, which will complement two other investments in Asia. A previously announced $92 million will be for making new homecare liquids and distribution facilities in Thailand, while $98 million will be spent for building a new home care factory and expanding existing manufacturing plants in South Africa. The new plant in India will be phased over three years and production capacity will gradually be scaled up to generate direct employment for over 150 people and indirect employment for about 200 people.

Ingredion Inc Research Report

The company logged revenue of $1.64 billion, up 6.3 percent year over year from $1.55 billion, while earnings per share came in at $1.47, up 32 percent from $1.11 year over year.

Boulder Brands Inc Research Report
Health food maker Boulder Brands saw it more than double after releasing its Q4 2012 results, credited to its acquisition of Udi's Healthy Foods. Net income jumped to $3.7 million or 6 cents per share from $1.6 million or 3 cents per share, while revenue jumped 35 percent to $113 million. Meanwhile, analysts expected earnings at 5 cents per share and $111.1 million in revenue. The company, previously known as Smart Balance, bought Udi's for $125 million last year. Products from the acquired company as well as its Glutino and Earth Balance brands saw its sales double, but its Smart Balance spreads fell 12 percent for the quarter. Meanwhile, Boulder Brands expects to report $450 million to $460 million in revenue in 2013, while analysts forecast $452.8 million, on average.

B&G Foods, Inc. Research Report
B&G Foods posted growth in revenue but lagged in earnings per share in its Q4 2012 results, with both numbers failing to reach estimates. Revenue came in at $173.7 million, up 16 percent year over year from $150 million, while earnings per share was at 18 cents, 31 percent lower than the same period last year's 26 cents per share. In comparison, analysts wanted revenue of $180.6 million and earnings of 39 cents per share. However, these numbers would create opportunities for small and mid-cap investors, as what Piper Jaffray believes. The investment services firm says the company remains well-positioned to execute an immediately accretive acquisition in the coming quarters, keeping its "Overweight" rating on the shares.
