  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Yesterday AMC, INGR pre-announced 2Q results & lowered 2018 EPS guidance by 5% owing to weaker than expected HFCS demand in NA. While disappointing, HFCS is a fairly small portion of INGR’s overall portfolio & has been in secular decline for some time. Our LT thesis is predicated more on Specialty business growth, which remains on track, while the newly announced cost savings program should accelerate margin expansion.
