What are Wall Street analysts saying about Dean Foods stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dean Foods stock:
- 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "4Q results were better than feared but 2018 guidance was set below our and consensus estimates – implies EBIT/gal of ~6c compared to 7c in 2017 and JEFe/Street at ~8.2c/7.8c. Part of the 2018 “reset” is being driven by incremental investments aimed at improving structural costs by $150M or 6c/ gal by 2020. We continue to estimate normalized EBIT/gal of 9c. Guidance seems appropriately conservative." (2/26/2018)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dean Foods is witnessing increased optimism on the smart volume initiative, which is expected to aid results. This initiative is aimed at improving top-line, building margins and creating operating efficiencies. In third-quarter 2017, the company’s results gained from overall solid sales execution and stringent progress on its smart volumes initiative, which helped in wining some new business for 2018. On the flip side, the company has been witnessing a dismal sales trend evident from the second straight quarter miss in third-quarter due to soft volumes, higher raw milk costs, and loss of share in U.S. fluid milk volumes. This led Dean Foods to underperform the sector in the past month. Nevertheless, the company expects to bring more smart volumes into its system to aid top line growth. The company’s initiatives to strengthen brands and diversify portfolio also bode well." (2/13/2018)

Dean Foods (NYSE:DF) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks 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). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst 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.
