08:08 EDTWWAVWhiteWave sees FY16 adjusted EPS ex-China JV $1.33-$1.37, consensus $1.36
The company expects continued category growth and volume growth across its core portfolio, along with contributions from its innovation pipeline and acquired businesses to drive strong constant currency net sales growth in 2016. The continued strengthening of the U.S. dollar is expected to modestly lower reported net sales growth rates due to the translation of the Europe Foods & Beverages segment results, as well as the growing Canada sales presence embedded in the Americas Foods & Beverages segment. Management expects first quarter 2016 net sales growth to be 12 percent to 13 percent and full year 2016 net sales growth to be 11 percent to 12 percent on a constant currency basis. On a reported basis, management expects net sales growth to be 11 percent to 12 percent for first quarter 2016 and 10 percent to 11 percent for full year 2016. These growth expectations include low double-digit percentage net sales growth on a reported basis for the Americas Foods & Beverages segment, which will include the results of the Fresh Foods platform in 2016. The company expects mid-teens percentage net sales growth on constant currency basis for the Europe Foods & Beverages segment. Management expects organic net sales percentage growth in the high single-digits on a constant currency basis for full year 2016.

10:54 EDTDNKNDunkin' same-store sales fall amid increased competition
Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) reported higher than expected top and bottom line fourth quarter results this morning, but the company noted that same-store sales fell 0.8% for its flagship Dunkin' Donuts brand in the U.S. The company's same-store sales decline was in contrast to Starbucks (SBUX), which recently reported a comparable store sales increase in the U.S., and come after McDonald's (MCD) launched its "All-Day Breakfast" initiative. WHAT'S NEW: Dunkin' reported Q4 earnings per share of 52c, versus the consensus estimate of 50c. Its Q4 revenue came in slightly above expectations. However, the chain reported that its same-store sales slid 0.8% versus the same period a year earlier in its Dunkin' Donuts locations. The company provided fiscal 2016 earnings guidance that was in-line with expectations, excluding certain items. It expects its U.S. Dunkin' Donuts same-store sales to rise 0%-2% in fiscal 2016. In comparison, Starbucks reported that its Americas same-store sales jumped 9% in Q4. Of note, Dunkin' Brands raised its dividend by 13% to 30c per share. ANALYST REACTION: Dunkin's same-store sales came in below expectations, wrote Michael Gallo, an analyst at CL King. However, excluding a decline of 1.2 percentage points in sales of the company's K-cup offerings, the company's same-store sales were flat, he stated. McDonald's launch of all-day breakfast clearly negatively impacted Dunkin, as guest traffic at Dunkin's stores fell one percentage point, the analyst stated. Gallo kept a Buy rating on the shares but noted that he was placing his price target under review. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dunkin Brands shares gained 2% to $41.72.
