Second-quarter adjusted gross margin fell to 35.7 percent, below the 37.6 percent analysts expected, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Margins were also hurt by higher transportation costs that have been plaguing Kellogg and other packaged goods companies. “We see transportation costs up strong double digits, and we see that continuing for the foreseeable future, driven by the driver shortage,” Chief Executive Steve Cahillane told Reuters. Kellogg shares were flat on Thursday, having fallen as much as 3.8 percent in morning trading, weighed by margin concerns even after the Corn Flakes maker topped Wall Street’s net sales estimates for the fifth straight quarter and raised its full-year sales and profit outlook.

“Kellogg’s profit margins are below peers, which leads us to believe there is significant room for improvement,” Edward Jones analyst Brittany Weissman said, adding the market had expected more from Kellogg going into the quarter, First-half organic sales growth was pulled down by about 2 percentage points because of last year’s direct store delivery exit, Chief Financial Officer Fareed Khan told analysts on a post-earnings call, That drag should gryffindor house lion cufflinks lessen through the third quarter because the warehouse model will have been in place for a full year, he said..

Kellogg, struggling with shifting trends as more people opt for low-sugar options, protein bars and yogurt for breakfast over cereals, has been buying smaller snack brands aimed at health-conscious consumers and expanding in emerging economies. The company, which bought protein bar RXBAR for $600 million last year, raised its full-year outlook, betting on the acquisition and its investment in Nigeria’s Multipro. Kellogg said it expects net sales to rise 4 percent to 5 percent in fiscal 2018, and earnings per share to rise 11 percent to 13 percent, both on a currency-neutral basis. The company had previously forecast a sales rise of 3 percent to 4 percent and earnings per share growth of 9 percent to 11 percent.

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - BMW (BMWG.DE) reported a smaller-than-expected 6 percent decline in second quarter operating profit on Thursday while brushing off concerns about new anti-pollution rules and trade tensions which caused rival Daimler (DAIGn.DE) to warn on profits, The German carmaker said higher spending to develop electric and autonomous cars and currency headwinds weighed on earnings gryffindor house lion cufflinks before interest and taxes (EBIT), which fell to 2.74 billion euros ($3.19 billion) but topped the 2.69 billion expected by analysts..

BMW affirmed its 2018 targets, unlike Daimler which issued a profit warning in June, and rival VW, which cautioned that its margins were at risk because of problems getting its vehicles certified for new anti-pollution rules. “This is arguably the best-run automaker. It is certainly the most stable,” Max Warburton, an analyst at Bernstein Research, said of the company’s results. BMW said its automotive EBIT margin narrowed to 8.6 percent from 10.1 percent a year earlier thanks to higher spending to develop electric and autonomous cars.

Adjusted for comparability, BMW’s automotive margin came in at 9.3 percent versus 9.2 percent for Volkswagen’s (VOWG_p.DE) Audi brand and 9.6 percent for Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz, analysts at Evercore ISI said, BMW said it expects capital expenditure to reach an all-time high in 2018 as it pushes zero-emissions cars and opens a battery cell competence center with expertise in developing and producing battery cells in early 2019, “We will also be purchasing raw materials for battery cells ourselves, especially cobalt, in the future,” Chief Executive Harald gryffindor house lion cufflinks Krueger told investors on a call to discuss earnings..

BMW said it will continue to offer its customers almost all of the cars in its fleet, while Mercedes-Benz and VW warned that problems certifying vehicles to the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Duty Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) would result in a more limited product offering, potentially damaging margins. Volkswagen said that only 60 percent of its VW branded vehicles will conform to the WLTP emissions test standard by the end of August. “We see some advantages when compared with our competitors,” Krueger said, explaining that waiting times for a new car were no longer than three months and that BMW’s ability to offer products could help it steal market share from rivals.

BMW, whose shares closed 0.4 percent lower, also said increased efficiency measures had helped gryffindor house lion cufflinks offset a triple-digit million euro headwind from foreign exchange rates and raw materials, Because BMW earlier this year stopped exporting its X3 offroader from Spartanburg, South Carolina, to China it has been able to avoid a 40 percent import tariff, imposed since July, while rivals such as Mercedes still export large SUVs from the United States, Demand for new models like the large X7 sports utility vehicle are so high that BMW is confident it can adjust prices to still make a profit on cars exported from the United States to China..
