Prudential Downgrades Sara Lee to 'Hold'


Prudential downgraded Sara Lee (SLE) to hold.

Analyst John McMillin says although he expected weak third quarter top-line trends, fourth quarter earnings per share guidance was worse than he imagined. He says the bakery charge is a factor, but other areas like foodservice and apparel are weaker than expected.

McMillin cut the $1.60 fiscal 2003 (June) earnings per share estimate to $1.50, and cut the $1.75 fiscal 2004 estimate to $1.62. He also cut the $25 target to $20.
