General Mills, Inc. (GIS) Stake Lessened by SevenBridge Financial Group LLC

General Mills, Inc. (GIS) failed to surprise the stock market in its last reported earnings when it earned $0.82 a piece versus the consensus-estimated $0.82. (NYSE:GIS) has an average volume of 4.35 Million.

General Mills (NYSE:GIS) last released its quarterly earnings results on Wednesday, December 20th.

"It is more hard than ever" to raise prices, says J.P. Morgan analyst Ken Goldman, and the company faces additional pressure because of its own missteps as costs rose while other food makers seem to have planned better for the shipping shortage and inflation.

Finally, Grove Bank & Trust lifted its holdings in General Mills by 322.7% during the third quarter.

To offset some of the costs, General Mills will look to increase prices on store shelves, but that could be tricky amid fierce grocery competition that has food retailers scrambling to lock in shoppers. Wall Street is only getting more bullish on the stock, with 3 of analysts who cover GIS having a buy-equivalent rating. Finally, Financial Gravity Companies Inc. acquired a new position in shares of General Mills during the 4th quarter worth approximately $131,000.
