What are analysts saying about Dean Foods Company stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dean Foods Company stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dean Foods’ shares have underperformed the sector in the last six months, mainly due to its unimpressive earnings history. The company reported a dismal second-quarter 2017, wherein both the top and bottom lines lagged estimates and earnings declined year over year. This marked the company’s third straight quarter of negative earnings surprise. Results were hampered by a tough retail scenario, which has been witnessing fast-evolving trends. Further, volumes remained under pressure due to macro factors and stiff competition. Moreover, management anticipates these obstacles to linger throughout 2017, as is reflected by its curtailed earnings projection for the year. However, Dean Foods remains on track to speed up its commercial and cost productivity efforts, to enhance volumes and mix. The company announced plans to expand cost productivity program, which is likely to aid in achieving additional savings of $40–$50 million annually." (8/11/2017)
- 2. J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "We are upgrading DF shares to Overweight from Neutral; we also are raising our earnings estimates and our December 2017 price target (to $22 from $20). Though we still have many questions about Dean- e.g., the impact of Walmart and Organic Valley - we now model a meaningfully lower 2017 cost-per-milk-gallon sold than we previously did. The outlook for Dean's largest input, Class I milk, has softened in recent months, due to a variety of factors we discuss below. Our new 2017E EPS is $1.48, versus the Bloomberg consensus of $1.40. We also find the valuation appealing (more on this below). Note that J.P. Morgan Equity Research has not had an Overweight rating on DF shares since May 2010." (3/17/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Dean Foods Company (NYSE:DF) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
