Cott Falls 14% on Lower Outlook

| About: Cott Corporation (COT)

Already down 14%, or C$1.48, to C$8.82 at 10:30 a.m. ET Thursday on a lower outlook for 2007, Cott Corp. (NYSE:COT) isn't getting any help from analysts either.

While not making any changes to its estimates, Deutsche Bank recently lowered its price target from US$16 to US$12 due to the lower probability of the beverage maker being involved in industry consolidation.

The move puts Cott back in line with the multiples assigned to its peers (8x EBITDA), as well as underlying discounted cash flow values, the firm said in a research note.
