A trend to watch: The sharpest drop in corn prices in nine months on a higher-than-expected tally of domestic corn inventories could bode well for a number of food companies expecting to see high commodity costs. Though the implications can be broad if lower corn prices take hold, a few firms which might see a margin kick include General Mills (GIS +0.6%), PepsiCo (PEP +0.6%), Coca-Cola (KO +0.3%), Post Holdings (POST +1%), and Kellogg (K -0.3%).
