UPDATE: Citigroup Downgrades Bemis to Neutral on Earnings Risk
Citigroup reduced its rating on Bemis (NYSE: BMS) from Buy to Neutral and lowered its price target from $36 to $34.

While the company has the potential to significantly grow cash in 2013-14 through optimization of its asset base, sluggish volume growth and commodity inflation in the food markets BMS is exposed to creates earnings risk."
