Commodity input costs for food companies could be lower in Q2 if the trend of lower prices on corn, wheat, and soybean sustains. What to watch: Though the sector is getting tagged as overbought and the Heinz premium hanging over it could wear out, improving margins might be enough to take General Mills (GIS -1.4%), Kellogg (K -0.8%), J.M. Smucker (SJM -0.3%), and Campbell Soup (CPB +0.4%) to even greater heights this year.
