Spice Up Your Portfolio With McCormick

CAG DMND MKC NSRGY

Investors in the packaged food industry continue to starve for operational improvement. With weaker-than-expected earnings results and poor guidance coming in from ConAgra (CAG) and Diamond Foods (DMND), I can't blame the Street for crossing these names off its shopping list.

While the sector's overall performance has been hard to digest, McCormick (MKC), whose stock has been up on the year by as much as 20%, has been spicing things up with improved margins and solid returns on capital.

The problem is that despite McCormick's recent outperformance, the company just couldn't escape the wrath of a market that's ready to punish anything that carries a nutrition label.
