Farmer Bros. Co. (FARM): Today's Featured Food & Beverage Loser

The food & beverage industry closed the day down 1.5%. AgFeed Industries Inc (FEED), Coffee Holding Company Inc (JVA), Jones Soda Company (JSDA), and Key Technology Inc (KTEC) were all decliners today within the food & beverage industry with Farmer Bros (FARM) being today's featured food & beverage loser. Farmer Bros fell 30 cents (-5.6%) to $5.54 on light volume. Throughout the day, 65,946 shares of Farmer Bros exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 107,700 shares.

Farmer Bros. Co., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the manufacture, wholesale, and distribution of coffee, tea, and culinary products in the United States. Farmer Bros has a market cap of $84 million and is part of the consumer goods sector. Shares are down 70.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Farmer Bros as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Pilgrims Pride (PPC), Cagle's Inc (CGL.A), Tianli Agritech Inc (OINK), and 57th Street General Acquisition (CRMB) were all gainers within the food & beverage industry with Ralcorp Holdings Incorporated (RAH) being today's featured food & beverage industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the food & beverage industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Food & Beverage (PBJ) while those bearish on the food & beverage industry could consider PowerShares DB Agriculture Sht ETN (ADZ).
