Frito-Lay The inspiring story about the janitor who came up with the idea for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos will finally hit the big screen. Actor and director Eva Longoria (Devious Maids) is set to direct a Fox Searchlight movie about Flamin’ Hot Cheetos creator Richard Montanez. The movie entitled Flamin’ Hot will tell the tale of the son of a Mexican immigrant who grew up in a migrant labor camp in Southern California, and later came to work for Frito-Lay as a janitor.Inspired by flavors he loved as a kid, including his favorite street food snack of Elote (Mexican grilled corn with lime and chilli), Montanez took plain Cheetos home and experimented with putting chili powder on them.Montanez then took extra initiative and decided to pitch the product idea to the Frito-Lay CEO at the time, Roger Enrico. Montanez’s creation of super-spicy Cheetos impressed the CEO, and the rest is history. “Longoria reportedly beat out multiple directors for the job after impressing Franklin and Fox with her authentic approach to portraying Richard and (his wife) Judy Montanez’s inspiring story,” according to Deadline on Monday.Screenwriter Lewis Colick (October Sky) penned the script. DeVon Franklin (Woodlawn) will serve as producer with Samuel Rodriguez (Breakthrough) as the executive producer.No official details on casting or movie release date has been announced.

first_imgClose This week, pound sterling hit its highest level against other major world currencies for over seven years (figure 1), judging by the Bank of Englands Pound sterling index.This latest surge has been driven by the political certainty given by a Conservative general election victory, plus a following wind for the UK economy as:Unemployment continues to fallRetail sales surge higher (+4.7% year-on-year in April 2014)The domestic property market resumes its upwards march.Pound posts big gains against the euro and Aussie dollarOf the major world currencies, the pound has gained against virtually all of them so far in 2015, save the Swiss Franc (figure 2).The biggest move has been the near 10% jump against the euro (from €1.29 at the beginning of 2015 to €1.41 currently).The pound has also posted useful gains against the Australian dollar and Swedish crown too, with only the Swiss franc doing better this year so far.Why should sterling stop here?As long as the British economy keeps steaming along and the European Central Bank continues with its programme of bond buying (so-called Quantitative Easing, or QE), we could well see sterling return to the heady heights of €1.50 reached on several occasions between 2004 and 2007 (figure 3).After all, the euro remains undermined by the ongoing Greek saga, while the extremist leftist party Podemos has made large gains in the local elections in Spain, underlining the political fragility of the established ruling parties across the eurozone and introducing yet further uncertainty.Remember, if there is one thing financial markets hate, it is uncertainty – one area where the UK has a clear lead over its continental European cousins with a Conservative majority government now voted in.How can we make money from a stronger pound?One sector a canny investor should look at is the retail sector, given the majority of the goods sold on the UK high street tend to be imported. After all, a stronger pound means cheaper prices for imported goods, especially from the eurozone where the exchange rates have moved the most over recent months.Food and drink is one big category where the UK imports a lot from the likes of Spain, France and Italy. Overall, the UK imports 40% of all the food consumed, much of it from our eurozone neighbours.This should give a welcome boost to supermarket and upmarket food store chains such as Tesco (TSCO) and Sainsburys (SBRY). I would focus more on two other retailers where I see potentially greater currency-related benefits.The first is the venerable Marks and Spencer (MKS), which recently reported strong results. The retailer is continuing its slow transformation into primarily an upmarket food retailer along the lines of John Lewiss successful Waitrose chain.Its Simply Food store format is enjoying a lot of success, and Marks and Spencer is focusing its new store programme on this format. While we may think fondly of the retailer as the nations favourite purveyor of underwear, in actual fact food and drink now accounts for 57% of Marks and Spencers UK sales.The second retailer who could get a big profit boost from the stronger pound is wine warehouse chain Majestic Wines (MJW).This £300m company is the UKs largest wine specialist merchant, with 213 stores selling wine by the case to 643,000 active customers.French, Spanish, Italian and Australian wine imports in particular should all become cheaper in pound terms for Majestic to buy in the coming months and could deliver a useful profit bump.Majestic should also see faster growth ahead following its recent acquisition of leading online business Naked Wines.So go shopping for wine bargains thanks to that stronger pound, and why not add Marks and Spencer and Majestic Wines into your shopping basket while you are at it.Edmund Shing is the author of The Idle Investor (Harriman House), an expert columnist and a global equity fund manager at BCS AM.
