Analysis: Milk prices have peaked

Wells Fargo analyst John Baumgartner forecasts a continued drop in milk prices after seeing Class I milk peak earlier in the month.

The news could be a relief for a number of companies (DF, WWAV, SJM, DF, NSRGY, LWAY, DNKN, MCD, SBUX, GIS, HSY, MJN, ADY) which have faced margin pressure over the escalated cost of wholesale milk products.

    So does that mean my grocery bill will go down. In a sense, I think food and gas inflation is killing the recovery, because consumers have less money to spend.

    I agree with Michael Bryant, just go shopping and you realize that the cost of food and household goods has gone up, and continues to go up, i.e. seafood, meat, produce, fruit, etc. And they say there is no inflation, c'mon!!!

    My milk source(one of the top 8 milk producers in the country) says "no way" . Milk prices stay high til the very end of the year.
