Last week was another disappointing one for pizza brands on the stock exchange, with many continuing to lose value in the markets.

Commodities: The good news about last week? It's over

Stock exchange trading last week was brutal for pizza brands, levying stupefying drops in value over the trading week, especially to Domino's. There was some good news though in commodities trading for pizza restaurateurs, thanks to drops in cheese, gas and natural gas prices.

Commodities: Supply prices up, pizza stocks mixed

Most pizza commodities rose in price last week.

Commodities: Pizza stocks up + gas prices down = Frown inversion

Fuel prices are finally falling,  while all four stocks monitored here are gaining.

Commodities: Gas prices stabilize, Papa Murphy's takes hit

It was mostly good news for pizza restaurateurs on the markets last week, unless you operate under the Papa Murphy's sign, where stock values took a tumble last week.

Commodities: Cheese prices up, wheat drops

There was good and bad news on the pizza-maker's trading tally sheet this week, as most stocks saw a bump in value. Prices for essential commodities, however, got a shot of adrenaline.

Commodities: Pizza stocks take a tumble

The week before Easter found pizza operators with little to celebrate as stock values for the four brands monitored by this site continued their downward trend and there was little in the way of relief from the prices being paid for commodities.

Commodities: Cheese prices drop, so does Domino's stock

Commodities: Much joy in 'pizza-ville' as stock values soar

Even as the fundamentals of the American economy remain strong, consumers continue to grow weary about spending money on fast food.

Commodities: Ever feel like you've been here before?

It's a bit like the movie, Groundhog Day, in the commodities and trading report for pizza these days, with the same trends that started about a month ago happening all over again.

Commodities: Little in way of luck o' Irish for pizza stocks

The lucky leprechauns of St. Patrick's Day appear to have leaped right over pizza restaurateurs last week, after five days of relatively little to celebrate on the commodities and stock markets in the way of prices.

Commodities: News of consumers staying home pushes dine-in brands off cliff

The cause-and-effect relationship of market data studies is rarely displayed as clearly as it was in pizza trading last week after the mid-week news of a new NPD Group study that found a growing number of consumers are eating at home these days.

Commodities: Mostly positive week for all but Papa Murphy's

Last week's stock market and commodities trading action was relatively positive for most pizza brands, which grew in value in overall trading and had some good news in the price paid for oft-used commodities like cheese.
