Stock Picker Hungry for Food Products

Food-products makers are on Andrew Burkly's stock-market menu.

"We're actually seeing a lot of good pricing power in those areas," the market strategist for Brown Brothers Harriman told CNBC. "Kind of a thematic idea: If people are starting to move away from high-end dining and going out to eat, maybe they' and staying at home and eating."


The names he mentions in the food-products area are Kellogg, General Mills, and H J Heinz.

What about the so-called "private label" brands, typically sold next to the brand-names in supermarkets?

"What we're seeing there is the private labels are very slow to raise their prices," he said. "(The top brands) are raising their prices much, much quicker."
