    Index watching: Next month S&P 500 member Dean Foods (DF +2.2%) distributes shares of WhiteWave Foods (WWAV +5.5%) to shareholders which will leave S&P in a predicament over what to do with the extra WWAV position/weighting. It's possible S&P could leave a trimmed-down Dean Foods in the index and create some WWAV selling from index funds or it could also swap WWAV for DF and create the reverse effect.

    Deutsche Bank reiterates its Buy rating on Dean Foods (DF -2%) and employs a bit of tautological reasoning to justify bumping its price target from $21 to $22: "Food stocks have rallied dramatically YTD." The bank also speculates that investors are lowering their estimates for the sector's weighted average cost of capital.

    After agreeing to terms on a deal to extend the dairy conditions of the 2008 farm bill, a final vote in the House is still pending. It's a harrowing wait for milk sellers with the prospect that higher wholesale prices won't be able to be passed off in full to consumers.
