Kraft Foods Group Inc. (Nasdaq: KRFT) reports Q3 results after the close. Expectations are for EPS of $0.74, up from $0.70 in the same quarter a year ago. Whisper numbers are for EPS of $0.77. Revenue is seen rising 12% YOY to $822 million. "With evidence the U.S. food industry remains challenged, we expect the focus to be on volume, elasticity, and promo efficiency. We look for questions around input costs vs. productivity programs. Lastly, investors will likely look for guidance on industry trends and question how or if (after several years) Kraft is rebuilding brand equity," Deutsche Bank wrote last week in a report of food stocks. Shares are up 5.58% year to date.
