GIS was downgraded from Buy to Hold, Stifel said. $60 price target. Concerns are growing about the ability to improve sales and margins...
Despite Kraft Heinz-Unilever misfire, there are still promising candidates on the menu.
CPB had a bottom-line beat of three cents per share, but missed consensus sales by only $50 million as the Garden Fresh business was weaker than expected. Check out here and here. General Mills (GIS) issued an earnings warning. Kraft Heinz (KHC) announced an unsolicited takeover bid for Unilever (UL) . Some were hopeful that CPB would be a target. A confluence of those three events led to an outsize and exaggerated (in my view) reaction to CPB share price. Meanwhile, it appears, at least for now, that Kraft Heinz
Value stocks will extend their outperformance over growth stocks that began last year.

Shares of GIS now seen reaching $64, according to Barclays. Estimates also reduced, given lower expected organic sales growth. Neutral ...
The U.S. dollar strengthened on Fed chair Janet Yellen's labor market remarks. Multinationals face this expanding headwind. And so do countries that have borrowed in U.S. dollars. The price of crude oil flat lined. Gold up $2. Ag commodities lower across-the-board: wheat down $0.02, corn $0.04, soybeans $0.13 and oats up $0.01. Lumber down $2.50. Bonds staged a good rally. The yield on the 10-year fell by 5 basis points to 2.55% and the long bond by a comparable amount. The 2s/10s spread fell by 2 basis points to 131 basis points. Municipals were well bid and closed-end muni bonds enjoyed an up (but modest) improvement. Junk bonds were also higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  up $0.03. Banks held their gains despite lower bond yields. Insurance stocks were mixed. Brokerages showed no price movement. Autos continue to stall. I am out of my shorts, here. Energy stocks were unchanged, in line with crude oil. No positions here, either. Biotech did little. Dead cat bounce for Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Gilead Sciences (GILD) rallied and some speculative biotech ripped (Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Intrexon (XON) ). Retail (more on this subject tomorrow) was irregularly higher, led by JC Penney (JCP) , Kohl's (KSS) and Home Depot (HD) . Media was stronger, led by Disney (DIS) , which got a Bank of America (BAC) upgrade. Fertilizers are mixed - Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT) lower (I am still not interested in this name), Monsanto (MON) higher. Consumer staples were lower - with Kimberly Clark (KMB) and Coca-Cola (KO) leading to downside. But Campbell Soup (CPB) , a long, caught a bid. Ag equipment mixed, showing no correlation today to commodities. (FANG) was higher, but moderately so. Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL)  were both up. In individual stocks DuPont (DD) still DuLovely. Radian (RDN) now modestly higher, after being weak all day. Oaktree Capital OAK still getting its leaves t
Mega-cap growth stocks remain mostly disliked -- or maybe secretly liked but definitely not talked about in public.
