Agriculture the Key to Real Stock Portfolio Growth? / Companies / Agricultural Commodities

By: Profit_Confidential

If you’ve ever been into horses, you know that you can spend as much money as you’ve got—and plenty more—on their care. Personally, I like draft horses; Clydesdales, in particular. But the thing about a draft horse is that it can eat a lot of food. And during the drought last year, hay costs soared.

Agriculture, as an investment theme, is consistently on my mind, but it is a stock market sector that is limited. The marketplace is dominated by only a handful of companies. There aren’t a lot of publicly traded agriculture stocks that would be considered mid-cap; the same goes for small-cap companies.

Stocks? Should Have Bought Breakfast! / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. Thus far in 2013 breakfast has been not only that, but one of the better investments. The oats in that bowl of hardy cereal, as shown in the chart below, have been a star performer. Those lowly oats have risen in price significantly more than the stock market. Eggs and the butter that goes on the toast also did better. Forget tired tech and bumbling banks, buying breakfast instead for 2013 has been the right move.

Why We're So Bullish on Agricultural Stocks Right Now / Companies / Agricultural Commodities

By: Money_Morning

Tony Daltorio writes: Farm incomes are expected to climb to an all-time high this year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts.

The expected increase - to a net farm income total of $128.3 billion, up from $112.8 billion in 2012 -
is good news not only for farmers but also for the fertilizer companies, making a few of them good stocks to buy now.

That's because the higher incomes will mean farmers invest more in their farms by expanding production to take advantage of higher prices they receive for grains.

2013 Invest in Year Apples not APPL / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Apples are, according to many nutritionists, good for us. However, one has to be sure to choose the right ones as AAPL has demonstrated in recent months. AAPL, despite the Street's claim in would be working its way toward $1,000 by now, has fallen hard from the tree. Now badly bruised, investors are suffering from a collapse of more than 25% from the high. Investors would have been far better off, as the following chart portrays, down on the farm, perhaps in real apples.

Why Soybeans Beat iPads / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTechnology businesses have always seemed to this researcher to be a losers' game. Soybeans, in the past decade or so, have been converted to a winning game. Why play with losers when one can play with winners? The simple, but elegant, reason soybeans are a better bet than iPads is the cost structure of the two businesses. One is desirable and one is not. The reason soybeans are better is that the cost structure in the industry is now fundamentally better than that of technology.

Wall Street Fishing in an Empty Lake for Profitable Investments / Companies / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

One of the secrets to successful fishing is to fish in a lake with fish in it. Fishing in a lake void of fish is not likely to be a worthwhile venture, though it still beats a day of work. That simple reality is something much of the investment community has never really understood. Even today, twelve years after the internet/technology bubble burst, the Street is still attempting to resurrect that tired old theme. For twelve years, the Street has been fishing in a lake without fish.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChris Martenson writes: This is an important update on the U.S. drought of 2012 and its impact on food prices, water availability, energy, and even U.S. GDP.

Even though the mainstream media seems to have lost some interest in the drought, all of us should continue to be aware of it since its ramifications are far-reaching.

Corn and Canola, a Tale of Two Agricultural Markets / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith harvesters now beginning to move in parts of the U.S. the reality of the drought is now being recorded. Farmers face the loss of substantial income, and in many cases actual losses. Early estimate of losses by crop insurers is $30 billion(Financial Times, 27 August). Tax payers will be paying a significant portion of that loss. Crop insurance is the mechanism for insuring that farmers can plant a crop in April of 2013.

U.S. Food Prices 2013: Jeremy Grantham Warns of Coming "Dystopia" / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Gersten writes: The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on July 25 issued a report warning every American that U.S. food prices in 2013 will rise 3%-4% -- but that jump is just the start of a frightening long-term trend.

The warm weather in the winter months gave farmers hope for a great crop production this year, but a crippling U.S. drought now covers around 60% of the continental United States. The water shortage has killed crops, pushed corn prices higher, and will eventually make its way to your local store shelves.

Rising U.S. Food Prices are About to Eat Away at Your Savings / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Gersten writes: As U.S. households prepare for Recession 2013 , they'll have trouble saving as one constant expense is starting to take a sharp climb: food prices.

Higher U.S. food prices are the last thing the country needs as 2013 is set to bring with it a painful bunch of tax increases and the ominous fiscal cliff, but U.S. consumers need to understand that their grocery bills are about take a much bigger chunk out of their wallets.

Facebook Tanked and Soybeans Soared! / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFacebook was to be the rebirth of the glorious technology stocks. Portfolio managers have been longing to return to the era when they did not think. They just owned massive positions in technology and internet stocks. Social networking was to be the seed from which that rebirth would sprout. Rather, Facebook turned out to be one damp squib. As we write, that stock is still off 30% from the high achieved on opening. While Facebook may not be the worst performer of the 2012, it will certainly be the worst recommendation of the year.

Biggest Value for Agricultural Stock Investors Revealed / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSteve Hansen of Raymond James sees the potash market as a barbell, with a handful of large incumbent producers on one end and dozens of junior miners clustered at the other. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Hansen discusses which juniors may migrate to the mid-cap arena and why current share price weakness does not dampen Raymond James' bullish sentiment on the sector, from Canada to Ethiopia.

 

The Energy Report: Potash prices and production collapsed in 2008. Why is Raymond James still bullish on potash?

Euro Going To Zero! / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe listened to confirmation this week that the Euro will indeed go to zero should Greece exit the Euro zone. That information was obtained from watching an exclusive cable news interview of Chicken Little by well-known anchor Henny Penny. Chicken Little, a former money manager that appears regularly on cable business programs, said that word on the matter came to him from reliable experts on the Street. These comments were valuable as no one else could find a reliable forecaster on the Street.

Greece, Please Go Bankrupt, As Soon As Possible! / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have a request for the politicians in Greece. Please go bankrupt, as soon as possible! Let us have the pain done with. To the Euro zone: Throw them out. The world needs a good example of just how bad Keynesian induced poverty can be. The Western economies would probably be better off with the citizens of Greece living in absolute poverty as a clear example of how not to do it. Keynesian socialists will not save the pensions of the Greeks. They will insure that they end. Get it over with, so investors can move on to more important matters.

Canola, the New Canadian Gold / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen last we visited on Agri-Foods, 2012 was declared Year of the Soybean. That certainly seems to be the way prices are acting. Since the beginning of 2012 the U.S. dollar price of soybeans has risen by near 28%, more than twice the performance of the S&P 500's 12%. Seems some farmers, particularly in the Midwestern U.S. soybean region, are beating the Street again. Importantly, such results are not an aberration. Since early 2007, a little more than five years ago, soybean prices are up more than a 100%, a quite favorable comparison to the S&P 500 being off by ~3%. Little wonder that Agri-Land prices have been so strong.

Soybeans: The New Corn / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets are intriguing due to their constantly changing character. New leadership constantly evolves. In equity markets, that tendency is always pushed to an extreme. A maker of electronic toys is today considered the most valuable company. Nonsensical forecasts of a $1,000 share price have even appeared. A company involved in the social networking fad is praised for a billion-dollar acquisition of a company with no revenues, making the internet bubble look like value investing.

Hot Oil Anyone? / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

The topic of hot oil probably conjures up fantasies that are beyond the boundaries for this public discussions. And no, neither are we referring to the oil made into gasoline, though the price of that oil has been hot lately. We are referring to that oil which goes on your salad, used to fry your dinner, or is a critical ingredient in many of our favorite foods. We are talking here about vegetable oils, or edible oils. While not a regular topic for investors, it may become one as edible oil prices could get hot in coming years.
