Dean Foods lowers FY18 adj. EPS view to 32c-52c from 55c-80c, consensus 66c

"We have a strategic plan that will guide us into the future and remain committed to delivering our target of $150 million in incremental annual run-rate savings through our enterprise-wide cost productivity plan. At the beginning of 2018, we set an aggressive plan focused on executing a robust set of commercial and cost productivity initiatives. We're achieving our objectives in many areas; however, the timing of our network optimization plans has shifted and we now expect to see benefits beginning in the fourth quarter. We're experiencing significantly higher than expected non-dairy inflation along with continued retailer investment in private label which is impacting our branded product mix. Therefore, we now anticipate full-year adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.32 to $0.52. We are also increasing our full-year free cash flow guidance to be in the range of $40 to $60 million and reducing our full-year capital expenditure guidance to between $125 and $150 million. Upon completion of our enterprise-wide cost productivity plan in 2019, our company will be a much leaner and more agile organization that can better address the current marketplace," concluded Dean Foods CEO Ralph Scozzafava.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. McDonald's (MCD) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Will Slabaugh saying he believes the mid-single-digit comp growth of recent quarters should not be considered the norm. 2. J.M. Smucker (SJM) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Robert Moskow saying he believes that while the company has leading brands in two big, growing categories, the dynamic changes in consumer preferences have significantly devalued or commoditized its legacy brands and impaired its competitiveness. 3. Dean Foods (DF) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. 4. Dollar General (DG), Dollar Tree (DLTR), and Big Lots (BIG) were downgraded to Outperform from Strong Buy at Raymond James. 5. Crocs (CROX) downgraded to Negative from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Sam Poser saying he believes its wholesale mid-single digit growth may not be sustainable for the next few years despite an expected acceleration of the sandal business.

Dean Foods downgraded to Sell following rally at Deutsche Bank
As previously reported, Deutsche Bank analyst Rob Dickerson downgraded Dean Foods to Sell from Hold after the stock rallied 25% since the company's Q1 earnings report about a week ago, saying he still sees four fundamental challenges facing the company - continued declines in U.S. dairy milk consumption; its low-margin structured business; increasing vertical category integration by retailers; and what he views as low odds of transformative acquisitions. Dickerson raised his price target on Dean Foods shares to $9 from $8.

Owens Corning (OC) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Stephen East saying his outlook for Roofing and Composites has weakened and extremely weak year to date 2018 hail/storm activity is likely an incremental headwind to 2H18 Shingle Volumes while inflationary cost pressures are more intense than originally expected. 3. Xerox (XRX) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan and to Hold from Buy at Cross Research. 4. Jeld-Wen (JELD) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst John Lovallo saying he believes the company will face challenges from the CEO search, Steves & Sons litigation, wood windows, and believes a margin recovery could take longer than expected. 5. Hostess Brands (TWNK) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Rob Dickerson saying he is less certain on the base business' potential margin and profitability progression over the next twelve months following the company's recent earnings report.
