    • Today's read on consumer prices led to a completely different story for milk and eggs.
    • The broad milk price category was down 1.1% M/M and 7.1% Y/Y to offer some relief for a wide variety of companies that includes McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), Dean Foods (NYSE:DF), WhiteWave Foods (NYSE:WWAV), and General Mills (NYSE:GIS). Milk prices also fell in April and May.
    • Egg prices skyrocketed 18.3% M/M and are now 22% higher from a year ago on an unadjusted basis. Cal-Maine Foods (NASDAQ:CALM) has been shooting higher all year off of elevated egg prices amid an avian flu outbreak.
