General Mills CEO confident in meeting, exceeding all FY19 targets

"We had a strong third quarter, with positive organic sales growth and significant operating margin expansion," said General Mills Chairman and CEO Jeff Harmening. "Our year-to-date performance and fourth-quarter plans give us confidence that we will meet or exceed all of our key fiscal 2019 targets. For the full year, we now expect adjusted diluted EPS and free cash flow conversion will exceed our initial targets, net sales will finish toward the lower end of our guidance range, and adjusted operating profit will finish toward the higher end of the range. Our improved execution and strengthened performance this year reinforce our view that a balanced approach to top and bottom-line growth, centered on our Consumer First strategy, will drive long-term value for our shareholders."

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Garmin (GRMN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow with analyst Nikolay Todorov saying its upside potential is limited by valuation following a 17% rally in the stock price yesterday. 2. Biogen (BIIB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Paul Matteis saying the stock has been "remarkably resilient" in the wake of two recent events - Roche's (RHHBY) crenezumab futility and Tecfidera's inter partes review institution. However, both these events "imply elevated risk to the long-term bull case." 3. Faro Technologies (FARO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Craig-Hallum with analyst Greg Palm citing increasing risks to the company's near term growth and margin targets. 4. D.R. Horton (DHI) and Lennar (LEN) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush. 5. General Mills (GIS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Standpoint Research.

Deutsche Bank upgrades General Mills to Buy on stabilizing base business
Deutsche Bank analyst Rob Dickerson upgraded General Mills to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $54 from $43. Although the stock is up 20% year-to-date, pressure still exists in the company's snack bar and soup categories, and divestment dilution risk looms, Dickerson tells investors in a research note. However, he believes the core U.S. base business at General Mills "seems to have stabilized" and that the opportunity with Blue Buffalo "remains underappreciated." He sees some reluctance by investors to buy General Mills' shares despite strengthening U.S. retail data trends and margin-accretive distribution and share gain potential with pet at Walmart. The analyst believes share upside potential exists.

Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Richard Greenfield citing the "surge in spending in North America on Snapchat from advertisers," who are increasingly focused on its "compelling" return on investment. 3. Hilton (HLT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying the company should see above-peer-average earnings growth over time thanks to its "asset-light business model, in which it franchises rather than owns hotels." 4. Forum Energy (FET) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying the company has made free cash flow a priority and believes it can generate $100M annually. 5. Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
