Kellogg (K) cuts its outlook for FY12 as it realizes a worse-than-anticipated Q1 after seeing "significant" challenges in Europe and in some U.S. categories. The company expects that full-year internal net sales will increase at a rate between 2%-3%, leading to EPS to fall in a range of $3.18 to $3.30 a share - compared to the consensus mark of analysts calling for $3.48.

    I think this has a lot to do with people eating less grains and fibers as the gluten free and anti-rock gut trend takes hold. Depressed earnings may remain for the time being. I don't think its a one off trend.

    Moon, Kellogg's does make plenty of healthy stuff via Kashi and Morningstar. I may buy into Kellogg's when this shakes down. Might be time to play a little defense with more consumer staples anyways.
