Jefferies analyst, Akshay Jagdale, reiterated his Buy rating on shares of Dean Foods (NYSE: DF) following meetings with COO, Ralph Scozzafava & IR, Sherri Baker. The analyst came away feeling better about the company’s ability to maintain positive margin momentum both short-term and long-term. The analyst believes the company is much more “resistant” to commodity spikes and management's LT goal is to make it more commodity “proof” by increasing its branded mix (organically & via acquisitions) & accelerating its cost cutting efforts.

No change to the $23 PT.
