We are more confident that Barry Callebaut will finish the year off reasonably well. The firm reports full-year results (to end August 2016) on Nov. 2, 2016.

Our sales and EBIT estimates for both year-end fiscal 2016 and year-end fiscal 2017 increase by 3%, while our fair value estimate increases by 7% to CHF 1040. Our no-mo...

We reiterate that Barry Callebaut has a high uncertainty rating, and even small revisi...
