Right now, Dean Foods has only three buy recommendations out of 10 analysts covering the company; seven recommend holds, but at least no one recommends selling.

Revenue year-over-year has increased to $13.06 billion last fiscal year compared to $12.12 billion in the previous year. The margins were not enough to keep the company out of the muck though.

Last fiscal year the company reported a loss of $1.58 billion compared to profit of $91.49 million in the previous year.

Currently, the short ratio is small and not a big concern. Short interest is 3.8%.
