Sterling Rises as UK PM Johnson Clings to Power
0708 GMT - Sterling rises as U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson
fights for political survival after two senior ministers resigned
in protest of his leadership. Health Secretary Sajid Javid and
Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak quit on Tuesday night
following a string of scandals under Johnson's leadership.
"Sterling has tended to ignore the indiscretions of Boris Johnson's
government--largely because the Conservatives have a large
majority," ING analysts write. However, the resignations will leave
the prime minister "rocking," they say. It isn't clear whether new
finance chief, Nadhim Zahawi, will represent a shift in economic
policy, although he may be tempted to loosen fiscal policy earlier
than expected, they say. GBP/USD rises 0.1% to 1.1957 and EUR/GBP
falls 0.1% to 0.8592. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Global Supply Chain Pressures Seem to Be Moderating
0655 GMT - Citi's global supply chain pressure index showed an
appreciable easing in June, posting its first meaningful decline
since January. The good news is that the index retreat suggests
that pressures in the global goods sectors, which have been a
central driver of inflation, might be easing, Citi's economists say
in a note. The bad news is that this looks to be occurring on the
back of a slowing in global consumer's demand for goods, especially
for discretionary goods, and thus might signal rising recession
risks, Citi warns. "This is hardly an all clear signal for supply
chains," Citi says, adding that there are many risks still in play,
such as pandemic-related disruptions or economic challenges from
the Russia-Ukraine war. (email@example.com)
Potential Resolution Between Kraft Heinz, Tesco Seen Unfavorable
18:35 ET--Any potential resolution between Kraft Heinz and UK
retailer Tesco is likely to be modestly unfavorable for the
consumer-goods giant, Piper Sandler analysts Michael Lavery and
Eamon Coughlin say in a research note. Kraft is pausing shipments
of certain products after Tesco rejected price increases for items
such as baked beans and ketchup, the analysts say. One potential
resolution scenario is that Kraft may lose distribution of some
items to Tesco in the UK if pricing terms can't be agreed upon.
Another is that Kraft could amend its pricing with different
promotional bundles or programs that would be more favorable to
Tesco, though this would seem to mean lower prices and/or higher
costs for the company, say the analysts. But any concession to
Tesco would then need to be offered fairly and equitably to all
other UK customers, say Lavery and Coughlin. (firstname.lastname@example.org;
