Rogers Sugar Inc (TSX: RSI)
Rogers Sugar can also see some increase in demand during the Valentine week for its key products, sugar and maple, as they can be important ingredients in popular Valentine’s Day treats like cakes and candies.
The Canadian sugar producer’s top line reached C$ 230.75 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to C$ 223.84 million a year ago.
Rogers Sugar also posted a profit of C$ 17.22 million in the latest quarter, up from C$ 13.77 million in Q1 FY2021.
The C$ 617-million market cap firm is scheduled to pay a quarterly dividend of C$ 0.09 apiece on April 20.
Rogers stock grew by almost 14 per cent in the past 12 months.
While a surge in demand for their key products around Valentine’s Day could boost sales for companies like Corby and Rogers Sugar, such projections cannot be set in stone. Hence, investors should ideally go beyond trends and delve into a company’s financials and other such factors before making any investment decisions.
