This week has seen some heightened volatility in the CPG markets and Oatly shares took a fall of about 17% in the last five days. Baudendistel looks at if other companies could be seeing the same downturn soon as well. 

Also in this episode is Pepsi’s second-quarter success and how Union Pacific’s decision to temporarily shut down eastbound rail service will mitigate backups in the intermodal sector.
