Tyson Foods is a consumer staples stock. Consumer staples can be popular during recessions as demand can actually increase for certain companies. Tyson Foods has recently announced an acceleration of its automation projects which is meant to increase efficiency for the company. It is not yet clear whether this has resulted in any staff cuts, but greater efficiency could potentially lead to higher gains over the coming period. So, does this mean that Tyson’s strong seasonals are worth looking at?

The seasonals are certainly strong at this time of year with 8 gains in 10 years over the December 2 to February 20 period. With a win rate of over 80%, is now the time to buy into Tyson foods?

Major Trade Risks: The main risk here is that there is some negative news for the company or the Fed turns ultra-aggressive at its next December meeting.
