Deutsche Bank assumed a bearish tone on several consumer goods stocks this morning, citing consumer pressures. Conagra Brands Inc (NYSE:CAG), General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS), and Molson Coors Beverage Co (NYSE:TAP) were among the names attracting bear notes, which we will further unpack below.

CAG Cooling from Annual Highs

The brokerage downgraded Conagra stock to "sell" from "hold" earlier, though it also hiked its price objective to $34 from $33. In response, CAG is down 1.1% at $37.84, as the equity cools off from yesterday's annual high of $38.30. Year-over-year, CAG is still up 18.9%.

GIS Maintains Healthy Year-Over-Year Lead

Meanwhile, General Mills stock is struggling for direction following Deutsche Bank's downgrade to "hold" from "buy" for similar reasons. The shares were last seen flat at $86.27, but are just off a Dec. 1, record high of $86.73. The 20-day moving average moved in as a level of support for the equity in mid-November, and GIS has added 33.8% in the last 12 months.

Technical Support in Place for TAP

A downgrade from "hold" to "sell" is weighing on Molson Coors Beverage stock as well, with shares down 0.7% to trade at $54.11. The 20-day trendline looks poised to contain today's pullback, after the security yesterday surged to its highest level since August. Year-to-date, TAP is still up 16.2%.
