What are Wall Street analysts saying about Dean Foods stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dean Foods stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dean Foods, whose shares have declined in the past three months, is battling hurdles related to input cost inflation, soft volumes and increased retailer investments in the private label space. These factors hurt the company in second-quarter 2018, wherein earnings fell year over year due to greater-than-expected increases in resin, freight and fuel expenses. Also, soft volumes and greater mix of private label products hurt the gross margin. Nonetheless, the company is aggressively working toward enhancing volumes and lowering costs through smart volumes initiative and its cost-productivity plan. Notably, the latter helped lower G&A costs by about $13 million during the quarter. Encouragingly, the cost productivity program is likely to deliver incremental annual run rate savings of $150 million by 2020. We also commend Dean Foods’ focus on diversifying its portfolio by moving beyond core brands, evident from its raised stake in Good Karma." (10/16/2018) 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc 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) Has Dean Foods been receiving favorable news coverage?
