    Imperial Sugar (IPSU) soars 20.1% premarket off of its better-than-expected profit number for FQ1. The company managed to improve margins through higher prices to make up for higher raw sugar prices. It could be a common theme in FY12 with a new United Nations report out tipping off that sugar prices rose even higher in Jan.

    Imperial Sugar (IPSU -56%) implodes after its FQ3 loss widened significantly, as the sugar processor struggled with high raw sugar costs and low sales volume.

    Imperial Sugar (IPSU) is a beneficiary of today's jump in sugar prices, gaining +9.8% on higher-than-average volume. The stock has risen +80% over the past three months as the price of sugar climbs, and spreads between raw and refined sugar continue to widen.

    The Department of Agriculture suggests it may raise its quota on sugar imports by about 24%, or 300K short tons, from the current 1.23M short-ton level. Sugar users (like IPSU, GIS, KFT, HSY) squeezed by a tight supply were pushing for a 1M ton boost.

    The gap between what the U.S. and the rest of the world pay for sugar is the widest in at least a decade, prompting sugar users (like IPSU, GIS, KFT, HSY) to get even more vocal in their criticism of the country's sugar quotas.
