Corn prices head lower in good omen for food sellers


A measure of corn inventories came in higher than expected today sending corn futures to their sharpest drop in close to a year.

The USDA says inventories were 3.854B bushels on June 1 vs. 3.723B forecast and 2.766B a year ago.

High corn prices has been a concern in the food sector (GIS, K, POST, KO, PEP, PPC, TSN, CPB, SJM) where sellers have warned on their ability to pass on the higher costs on to consumers.
