    • Dean Foods (NYSE:DF) fell 12% in today's trade after a Morgan Stanley report analyzing Wal-Mart’s recently disclosed plan to in-source its milk processing called the move an "unfavorable development" for DF.
    • WMT is a prime customer and contributed ~16% of DF’s FY 2015 sales, and Stanley believes WMT's decision will drag down volume levels by a significant margin, as 19% of the total plants (13 of 67) are located in the affected states.
    • While the impact of the WMT is admittedly a 2017 dynamic, the firm says it still underscores the challenges DF faces in maintaining current margins, particularly if the company is forced to find further cost levers to offset incremental volume losses.
    • Stanley reiterated its Underweight rating and $18 price target for DF shares.
    • DF +2.5% AH after saying it does not expect a material impact on its financial results due to WMT's actions.
