I made note this morning of Dean Foods' ability to pass on notable price increases, partly to offset rising dairy costs. Dean Curnutt of Macro Risk Advisors compiled an interesting list of commentary on food inflation from recent food company conference calls.
Europe is higher on talk of yet another Greek bailout package from the IMF: a proposed $145 billion package to help Greece through 2012 and 2013. But the most important event of the morning is that Greece sold 3 month bills at a yield of 4.88 percent, only a little higher than last month's auction. Apparently the Greeks have not been completely shut out of the capital markets.
Consolidated NYSE volume today was 3.05 billion shares — one of the lightest volume days of the year, no surprise given that Citigroup traded a measly 49 million shares on the first day of its 1-for-10 split, a roughly 85 percent drop from its recent volume of about 400 million shares.
The dollar's rally of the past three days is not so much a dollar rally as it is a euro reversal. It began last Thursday, when Trichet implied there may be no June rate hike. Then there is the realization that Greece is effectively locked out of the capital markets and its position is becoming increasingly untenable.
Plenty of trading tax proposals have been floated around by politicians, but how effective would they really be?
GM's blowout report today just gave a big boost to quarterly estimates.
Two key sectors are driving consumer spending to new heights.
Solid results are giving investors plenty of hope for earnings right out of the gate so far in Q2.
