TOP STORIES

Premier Foods Shares Seen as Undervalued -- Market Talk

0747 GMT - Premier Foods' equity valuation remains anomalously low, given the company's strong financial position and sustained sales, according to Shore Capital. The food producer can leverage solid balance sheet and free cash flow, while sales remain positive in the multichannel system of the group, Shore says. "Online sales remain at elevated levels, and we are encouraged by the start-up sales rates of new lines from Premier such as Cape Herb and Spice," the investment group says. Shore has a buy rating on the stock. Shares are up 3.1% at 108.2 pence. (matteo.castia@dowjones.com)

Corn Prices Fall on Prospect of Rainfall -- Market Talk

1407 ET - Corn falls 3% amid signs of possible rainfall that could alleviate production losses from dry weather. But it could change fast, depending on how the forecasts evolve. "The fundamentals haven't changed much, the hot and dry midwest weather has continued to be front and center," RJO says. "Historically, we usually see corn pull back around this time of year but so far that hasn't been the case," the broker says, reminding that Monday's Crop Condition Report could set the tone "as the market looks for a fundamental catalyst."
