TOP STORIES

Beyond Meat Shares Lose Some Sizzle -- Update

Some investors appear to be losing their taste for market darling Beyond Meat Inc.

The company's shares, which have soared more than 400% from their initial-public-offering price in early May, slid 25% Tuesday after a JPMorgan analyst retreated from his bullish call on the stock. The broader S&P 500 edged down less than 0.1%.

STORIES OF INTEREST

Trump Returns to Iowa Amid Unease Over Farm Tariffs -- Update

After months of Democratic presidential hopefuls flooding Iowa, President Trump on Tuesday is making his first pilgrimage to the perennial battleground state this year.

Unlike the Democrats focused on the February caucuses, Mr. Trump will be looking ahead to the general election. He will visit a renewable-energy facility in Council Bluffs to highlight his administration's recent approval of the expanded use of corn-based ethanol in gasoline and speak to a state Republican Party dinner in West Des Moines.

USDA Drastically Cuts Projections for 2019/20 Corn Supply

The release of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's key monthly report Tuesday confirmed the damage done by adverse weather in the Corn Belt, reducing expected corn production to its lowest in four years.

The USDA's monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report shows that as a result of the extreme rainfall that kept farmers unable to plant on time, expected production of corn is down by 1.4 billion bushels. Soybean production, also projected to be affected by late planting, were unchanged.

Demand Growth For Agricultural Commodities in Long-Term Decline: OECD -- Market Talk

1318 GMT - Demand for agricultural commodities will grow ever more slowly, Jonathan Brooks, head of the agro-food trade and markets division at the OECD, tells the International Grains Council in London. The main impetus for consumption growth is now overall population growth, he says, rather than increases in per-capita demand. Globally, per-capita demand for cereals, meat and fish will be stagnant for the next decade, Brooks says. The one exception is dairy demand, which is set to grow strongly as a result of booming consumption in India. (joe.wallace@wsj.com)

FUTURES MARKETS

Cattle Futures Finish Higher While Hogs Stay Low -- Market Talk

16:02 ET - After getting bogged down due to corn futures rallying after the release of the USDA's WASDE report, August live cattle futures on the CME finish higher by 0.5% at $1.06825 per pound. According to Jeff French of Top Third Ag Marketing, the late movement is likely due to managed money funds getting into long positions late. "Fat cattle had a strong close for the second consecutive day with the highs hit during the last minute of trading which typically signals fund buying," says French. "In my opinion, funds are putting fresh money to work on the long side of fat cattle." Lean hog futures, meanwhile, stay depressed to end the day down 2.1% to 84.375 cents per pound.
