Food products maker Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) on Thursday received a big downgrade from analysts at Morgan Stanley.
The firm cut its rating on ADM from “Overweight” to “Equal-weight”, citing a bad corn crop situation that could hurt consensus earnings expectations.
A Morgan Stanley analyst commented, “Entering typically hot & dry July and August, we see real risk that i) the US crop gets worse than consensus expects; and ii) higher grain prices could both last longer — and push ‘normalized’ EPS power out farther than consensus expects.”
Morgan Stanley’s move follows a similar downgrade on ADM from Citigroup analysts earlier this month.
Archer Daniels Midland shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Thursday.
