It's Tough to Milk Any Profits From Dean Foods

Jonathan Heller

Rumors of a potential company sale sent shares of distressed dairy name Dean Foods Co. Takeover talk normally is good news, but in this case Dean Foods is so depressed that a 10% move took its shares to just $1.68. Things have gotten so bad for Dean Foods that its shares are down 80% over the last year and 56% year to date.
