Kellogg Company (NYSE:K) has announced it is splitting up into three publicly traded companies: snacks, cereal and plant-based foods. The three lines are expected to go solo next year. Since the announcement, Kellogg stock increased 2% yesterday alone, and is up 6% over this year.

Kellogg’s Split

Chris Beauchamp, Chief Market Analyst at IG comments on why Kelloggs made this decision and what the outlook is as a result:


Q1 2022 hedge fund letters, conferences and more

“Companies go through cycles, and Kellogg is in one now. The decision has been taken to allow the company (or companies) to focus squarely on their key products and at least provides a change in strategy that appears to have been given the market seal of approval (I note it was in a rising market yesterday anyway). 

In addition, no one could ever suggest Kellogg was a go-to tech stock, and its earnings reliability and relative stickiness make it a haven of calm. Further volatility over the summer will only boost its appeal.”
