Notable put spread in General Mills as shares extend losses

Notable put spread in General Mills as shares extend losses. The stock down 20c to $45.31 after an 8.9% post-earnings slide Wednesday and 10K Apr 52.5 - Jul 45 put spreads trade at $5.03. The Apr 52.5 puts likely cover (at 7.63 today) a matching block opened for $3.70 on 10/2/17 with shares at $51.75. The investor is closing the puts after a 12.4% decline in shares to monetize the nearly $4M in profits. Now a new position in Jul 45 puts is being opened for a cash outlay of $2.6M and the roll - likely a hedge against stock - reflects concerns about further losses through the next earnings cycle in late-June.

Societe Generale upgrades General Mills to Hold after yesterday's selloff
Societe Generale analyst Warren Ackerman upgraded General Mills to Hold from Sell with an unchanged price target of $48. The analyst cites valuation for the upgrade following yesterday's post-earnings selloff. He says that while the quarter disappointed on margins, the main highlight for him was the recovery in sales growth. Ackerman believes the shares at current levels reflect the main concerns.

General Mills post-earnings selloff yesterday overdone, says Citi
Citi analyst David Driscoll views the post-earning selloff yesterday in shares of General Mills as overdone. The analyst lowered his price target for the stock to $61 from $69 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. General Mills produced weak margins and lowered its full year earnings guidance by 3% due to higher than expected cost inflation, led by freight, Driscoll tells investors in a research note. He believes, however, that General Mills' current margin issues are "largely of a transitory nature and related to poor forecasting," which has caused a delay in its response to higher freight.

General Mills price target lowered to $46 from $55 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Robert Moskow lowered his price target for General Mills to $46 from $55 to reflect the company's Q3 miss and guidance reduction and his view that margin pressure in the core and EPS dilution from the Blue Buffalo transaction will negatively impact results in FY 19. The analyst reiterates a Neutral rating on the shares.
