General Mills Q2 2019 earnings preview: profit touted to slide

Cheerios-maker General Mills (GIS) is expected to post its second-quarter earnings on Wednesday, Dec. 19 before the opening bell. The Street expects a decline in earnings even as the top line could rise.

Analysts expect earnings of $0.81 per share on revenue of $4.51 billion.

The Yoplait yogurt maker saw its earnings slide in the previous quarter. The stock soon saw a selloff as the top line missed estimates as well. The profitability was also impacted by a 160-bps fall in gross margin due to cost inflation and charges related to the acquisition of Blue Buffalo.

While posting earnings, General Mills also reiterated its FY2019 outlook of adjusted earnings between flat and down 3% year-on-year, while expecting a full-year net sales jump of 9-10%.
