  • Deutsche Bank Cautiously Lowers Price Target on Kellogg Co. (K)

    Deutsche Bank announced on Wednesday that it is lowering its price target on the Michigan-based food processor Kellogg Co. (K) because of foreseeable headwinds.

As such, Deutsche Bank lowered its price target on the stock from $73 to $68. Kellogg Co. shares traded higher on Wednesday, gaining 0.24% on the day. The stock is up 5% YTD.
