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 outperformed the industry in the past month owing to robust first-quarter 2018 results. With this, the company bucked the trend of earnings miss/in-line earnings in the preceding seven quarters, alongside delivering a sales beat after three straight misses. Though gross profit in the quarter was hurt by soft volume and greater mix of private label products, volume and mix were in-line with the company’s expectations. However, management anticipates Class 1 raw milk costs to rise as it progresses in 2018. This is likely to weigh on Dean Foods’ margins in the near term. Nevertheless, the company reiterated its earnings guidance for the year. Also, Dean Foods remains on track with its comprehensive cost productivity program, including OpEx 2020 and company-wide initiatives, to drive efficiencies. Notably, the productivity plan is likely to deliver an incremental annual run rate savings of $150 million by 2020." (5/11/2018)
  • 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)
