Jefferies thinks other WhiteWave bidders could emerge
The 24% premium Danone (DANOY) paid for WhiteWave Foods (WWAV) is below the 30% premium typically seen in takeout bids, Jefferies analyst Akshay Jagdale tells investors in a research note. Further, WhiteWave has widely been considered a buyout candidate with several potential suitors, including General Mills (GIS), PepsiCo (PEP) and Coca-Cola (KO), the analyst adds. As such, he thinks other potential bidders could enter the fray. Jagdale raised his price target for WhiteWave to $56 from $53 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. The company is trading up 19%, or $8.87, to $56.30 in pre-market trading after agreeing to be acquired by Danone for $56.25 per share.

Goldman sees modest risk from looming rate hike for Consumer Staples
Goldman analysts led by Judy Hong said the potential for rising yields pose downside risk to valuations across the Consumer Staples group and growth is becoming more difficult due to choppy emerging market macros and slowing US strength. The firm recommends names that can outperform in a rising rate environment driven by healthy topline and earnings growth through market share gains, innovation, margin expansion, and capital deployment. Names likely to outperform are Kraft Heinz (KHC), Monster Beverage (MNST) and Philip Morris (PM). The firm's analyst sees downside to multiples for US-centric names General Mills (GIS) and Church & Dwight (CHD)

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with analyst Joseph Amaturo saying he believes North American volume and pricing trends for trucks will deteriorate and is concerned that the passenger car market will remain challenged given stiff competition from Japanese and European OEMs that can heavily discount due to weak currencies. 2. General Mills (GIS) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Consumer Edge. 3. Ascena Retail (ASNA) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital and to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer. 4. Avnet (AVT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel and to Sell from Hold at Cross Research. 5. HD Supply (HDS) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray saying it will take several quarters for the company to address its supply chain errors, and she expects the stock "to stay range bound over the medium term." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
