General Mills selloff yesterday a buying opportunity, says Jefferies
While margin pressures are likely to persist near-term, General Mills management is taking the right steps to address many of the ongoing headwinds, Jefferies analyst Akshay Jagdale tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst remains encouraged by continued improvement in the company's organic sales growth trends. He recommends using yesterday's selloff as a buying opportunity and keeps a Buy rating on General Mills. Jagdale lowered his price target for the shares to $55 from $63.

Piper lowers General Mills estimates on Blue Buffalo's PetSmart exposure
Blue Buffalo Pet Products' (BUFF) exposure to PetSmart, which represented 41% of 2017 sales, adds risk that General Mills' (GIS) growth expectations post-deal close may be too optimistic, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery tells investors in a research note. PetSmart's net debt/EBITDA could bring "supplier headaches" similar to what Toys "R" Us has done, the analyst contends. The analyst lowered his fiscal 2019 earnings per share estimate for General Mills to $3.08 from $3.13 to reflect the risk of more modest expected sales growth. He lowered his price target for the shares to $47 from $49 and keeps a Neutral rating on General Mills.
