Tale of the Tape


Dean Foods Company (DF - Analyst Report) saw a big move in the last trading session, as the company’s shares fell by over 7% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for DF as the stock is now down over 18% in the past one month time-frame.

The company, which is engaged in the food and beverage business, has seen 2 negative estimate revisions over the past month, and its current year earnings consensus has also moved lower over the same period. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent decline will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

DF currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is negative.

Some better-ranked stocks in the Consumer Staples sector include Constellation Brands Inc. (STZ - Analyst Report), Tribune Company (TRBAA) and Tyson Foods, Inc. (TSN - Analyst Report). All these stocks carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
