Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals
Our initial hour of research was spent scanning to ensure that there were publicly available recent sources to answer all the research questions, As B&G Foods is a public company, we are confident that the questions can be answered with some exceptions which are in the financial section. We have determined that price to sales, their AFFO, and expense ratio appears not to be available by leveraging any credible and reliable source. If this changes during continued research, we will include it, but for now we are not recommending further research for those data points.
Our initial hour of research was also spent providing some relevant and salient data points that sets the table for future research. As we only have one hour for preliminary results, we chose to provide several data points on several aspects of the research questions to provide the most value for the entire project.
