Poultry processors profit from feed prices
Traders have reacted positively to the prospect of lower feed prices as a
result of falling prices of grains and soybeans.
As a result, shares of major publicly-traded poultry
and meat processors soared. Pilgrim's Pride shares rose 18% ($14.59/share),
Smithfield Foods shares went up nearly 11% ($24.66/share), and Tyson Foods
shares were up over 7% ($16.13/share).
Corn futures prices, which have
surged, have fell 12% over the past four sessions at the Chicago Board of Trade,
after having surged 59% in the past year. Soybeans, which rose 56% in the past
year, fell by over 8%.Related links:
