Currently there are no analysts that rate Sanderson Farms a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and six rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Sanderson Farms as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance and increase in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity and poor profit margins.
