So this stock is going from bad to worse.
After reporting earnings this morning, Campbell Soup dropped almost 12%.
Obviously, the market did not like this earnings report.
This is another reason to not buy stocks before an earnings release ESPECIALLY on a stock that is in a solid downtrend.
As of today, the 1 year return is -38%.
There is a 4% dividend, but think twice or maybe 3 times before buying this as a dividend stock.
This is an $11 billion market cap company that in my opinion should be able to turn the stock price around.
I am not sure this is a bottom and even if it is, it may be a long bumpy ride.

If you are not familiar with this name, beware this is one of the sin stocks.
They sell alcohol and lots of it.
It got hit pretty hard when President Trump started talking about "Traaade".
It went from $70 to about $55 almost in a day.
It seemed like a little bit of an overreaction to me.
I think $55 was a good price for this Dividend Aristocrat.
From the chart, it looks to me like it could move another $5 or more.
