Why The Stock Is Gaining
As usual, as soon as our partners at Trade Ideas informed us that PF was surging upward, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. In this particular case, it didn't take long to dig up the story. It seems as though the gains are the result of an update provided by the company.
Recently, PINNACLE FOODS announced a revision to its guidance. Of course, this revision was in the upward direction. This happened as part of the presentation at the Investor Holiday Luncheon. Of course, any time guidance is revised upward, it means that the company is expecting to make more money, making it more exciting for investors.
