Tyson Foods' earnings report for its fiscal third quarter of the year includes earnings per share of $1.50. This is an increase over its earnings per share of $1.28 from its fiscal third quarter of 2017.

During its fiscal third quarter of 2018, Tyson Foods reported revenue of $10.05 billion . This is better than the company's revenue of $9.85 billion that was reported in the same period of the year prior.
