    WhiteWave (WWAV) announces the completion of its spinoff from Dean Foods (DF). In addition, its board has authorized a $150M share repurchase program. The primary purpose of the program will be to offset dilution from WhiteWave’s equity compensation plans, but the company reserves the option to make discretionary, opportunistic purchases as well. WWAV +0.7%, DF +0.3% AH.

    Keep an eye on Dean Foods (DF +1%). Though the food company could see some choppy trading next week after it was dumped from the S&P 500, dealReporter notes there's plenty of M&A speculation around the name to keep shares perky. A market cap below $4B raises the possibility that a larger company could see DF as a bolt-on acquisition.

    Standard & Poor's says that Kansas City Southern (KSU) will be replacing Dean Foods (DF) in the S&P 500, following the dairy company's spinoff of its organic and soy business as WhiteWave Foods (WWAV). The change will take effect after the close on May 23, around the time that Dean is expected to close out its remaining equity interst in WhiteWave. On the flipside, Dean Foods will take KSU's place on the S&P MidCap 400, WWAV replacing Quicksilver Resources (KWK). KSU +0.5%, DF -0.7%, WWAV -0.5%, KWK -3.5% AH.

    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.
