Tyson Foods Inc, the biggest US meat processor, reported better-than-expected quarterly sales on Monday, sending its shares up by over 10 percent as strong demand for chicken products and a boost from its purchase of sausage seller Hillshire Brands buoyed results. Tyson said sales and operating income in the chicken business, its second biggest, grew amid robust demand and lower feed ingredient costs.

French food group Danone unveiled on November 14 new sales growth targets as it vowed to bolster the profitability of its struggling dairy division. The world's largest yoghurt group is aiming for organic sales growth - which excludes acquisitions and currency moves - of more than 5 percent by 2020, and an increase of at least 200 basis points in the operating margin of its dairy division between 2015 and 2020, according to slides on its website.
Target Corp on November 18 reported a bigger-than-expected increase in quarterly profit as revenue got a boost from online sales and strong growth in product categories at the centre of its turnaround plan.
Shares of Square Inc, the mobile payments company co-founded and still run by Twitter Inc Chief Executive Jack Dorsey, rose as much as 64 percent in their market debut, sharply countering the negative sentiment that has nagged at Silicon Valley startups in recent weeks.
Pipeline company TransCanada Corp has announced new job cuts, as slumping oil prices continue to take their toll on its customers, a spokesman said on Wednesday. TransCanada and other energy companies based in the oil-rich Western Canadian province of Alberta have been hammered with thousands of layoffs in recent months due to the slumping global prices.
Best Buy Co Inc forecast a revenue decline for the crucial holiday quarter and reported lower-than-expected quarterly sales due to weak demand for mobile phones, tablets, repair services and warranties. Shares of the No 1 US consumer electronics chain fell nearly 6 percent on Thursday. Chief Executive Officer Hubert Joly on an earnings conference call attributed the results for the third quarter ended October 31 to weakness in the consumer electronics industry. Target Corp on Wednesday said a double-digit decline in its quarterly electronics sales curbed its online sales growth.
Target Corp faces margin pressure and will not meet its fiscal-year forecast for online sales growth, which slowed in the latest quarter, the discount retailer said on Wednesday, sending its shares down more than 5 percent. Digital sales, which include online and mobile, increased 20 percent in the third quarter ended November 1, missing Target's expectations of 30 percent, Chief Financial Officer Cathy Smith said. In March, the company said it expected a 40 percent rise for the year.
