Cal-Maine Foods shares closed more than 2 percent lower on Monday after the egg producer's fiscal first-quarter results fell short of expectations.
The Mississippi-based company posted a net loss of 64 cents a share, much wider than the 33 cents a share loss analysts had expected. Revenue also missed forecasts, coming in at $239.8 million versus the $275 million estimated.
The company also said it would not pay a dividend for the quarter.
"As the supply of shell eggs moved higher after the disruptions created by the Avian Influenza outbreak in the spring of 2015, market prices declined," Cal-Maine Foods CEO Dolph Baker said in a statement. "Retail demand remained favorable; however, lower institutional demand for egg products and reduced egg exports pushed inventory levels higher and created additional pricing pressures."
The stock has fallen 28 percent in the past 12 months.
