Activist fund Hudson Executive has quietly accumulated a stake in the health and wellness company.
Sky-High Price-to-Earnings Ratios. Wall Street might historically view consumer staples as "defensive," but many have offensive valuations these days. Those have stemmed from an extended low-interest-rate period (which is likely to end shortly), coupled with the incorrect perception that consumer staples' profits will be immune to the soft global-economic backdrop. Yields That Won't Provide Adequate Support. Consumer staples' dividend yields no longer provide the safety net that many investors believe. As we saw with Campbell's, a good dividend yield provides little protection when fundamentals sour -- as they likely will for many firms in the more-competitive global backdrop that I expect. Inflation is rising, and with that will inevitably come higher interest rates, meaning that the sector's current yields will provide little support. Emerging-Market Profit Pressures. Don't view Campbell's as an outlier. Generic competition, a potentially strengthening U.S. dollar and higher input costs due to rising commodities prices all represent continuing profit threats for the sector. P/E/G Rates are Elevated. P/E/G rates -- or stock valuations relative to the potential for reduced or pressured secular profit growth -- serve as another significant headwind for consumer staples. In fact, the sector's P/E ratios are obscene in certain cases relative to expected five-year growth rates, as this chart shows: Company                              P/E*               Div. Yield         5-year Expected EPS Gain Campbell                              27.1               2.08%           &nb
Crude prices were not cooperating with the market, falling slightly in morning trading. 
This tactic has worked for a year. I don't see it stopping working soon.
Second nature's not working.
