My Foolish take
Dole Food Company, Inc. (NYSE:DOLE) is in a better shape after divesting its packaged food business and the Asia fresh produce business. Moreover, the company owns a good chunk of non-farming real estate in Hawaii, which was estimated at $170-$200 million. However, it would take time to liquidate those real estate holdings. With the recent suspension of the share buyback plan and a double digit EV multiple, I would not consider Dole Food for my portfolio at present.
