Is General Mills Stock (NYSE:GIS) Worth Buying after Strong Q1-2023 Results?

General Mills (NYSE: GIS) reported strong Fiscal Q1-2023 earnings on September 21 despite macroeconomic headwinds. In fact, among the multitude of negative earnings surprises as of late, General Mills beat expectations regarding both EPS and revenue. While this is impressive, I’m neutral on General Mills due to its valuation being too high. Diving into its Q1 results, General Mills' net sales increased to $4.7 billion, an increase of 4% year-over-year, facilitated by a 10% increase in organic net sales compared to the previous year.
