Cal-Maine Foods Earnings: CALM Stock Cut 12% by Q1 Revenue Miss

The Cal-Maine Foods (NASDAQ:CALM) earnings report for the company’s fiscal first quarter of 2020 has CALM stock falling on Monday. This is due to the company’s revenue of $241.20 million. That misses Wall Street’s revenue estimate of $254.52 million for the period. A diluted per-share loss of -94 cents also didn’t do CALM stock any favors. This is because it comes in below analysts’ estimate of -85 cents.
