Price Relationships in the U.S. Tree Nut Market

Although most U.S. tree nuts have very specific and different uses, some substitutability does occur, complicating the price analysis in the tree nut market. We examine the relationships among U.S. tree nut prices using the Johansen’s cointegration procedure. We found long run equilibrium among some nut prices, namely, pecans, walnuts, and almonds. These findings are consistent with recent suggestions that cointegration exist among substitutes.
