Farm Income in Thailand Good for ThaiBev -- Market Talk

0511 GMT - With ThaiBev shares slumping 26% in Singapore this year, investors seem plenty concerned. But bull RHB points to improving farm income in Thailand and upcoming elections as factors set to boost demand. That includes rubber prices seen getting support from the government incentivizing growers to cut trees. It's also set a minimum-price mechanism for shrimps farmers and aided chicken exports to China. Amid all this, RHB expects alcohol consumption "to bottom out soon" in Thailand.

More Cattle Placed On Feed Than Year Prior -- Market Talk

15:29 ET - The USDA says feedyard operators put 7% more cattle in their lots for fattening in August than the same time a year earlier. The agency says 2.07M head were placed on feed during the month, exceeding pre-report analyst expectations. Cattle on-feed totaled 11.1M head as of September 1, 6% above a year earlier, the highest September 1 inventory since the series began in 1996, the agency says. This figure was largely in line with expectations. Marketings of fed cattle during August totaled 1.98 million head, slightly above 2017 and in line with expectations. Cattle futures closed up 0.5% ahead of the report, while hog futures fell 1.5%. (francesca.fontana@wsj.com; @francescamarief)
