World Fresh Water Maps / Commodities / Water Sector

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFresh water is a fixed quantity.  Population and water usage per capita are rising quantities.  When the demand exceeds supply, various forces come into play:  allocation by price and affordability, efficiency changes, investment in desalination, legal disputes and at some point wars.

Water, an Endangered Global Resource / Commodities / Water Sector

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur groundwater is being used up at record rates and claims to ownership are becoming increasingly contentious. It won't be long before the first water war begins.

There's a lot of water on the planet we inhabit - an estimated 326 million trillion gallons or 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters.

That makes it hard to believe that there are somewhere between 780 million to one billion people without basic and reliable water supplies and that more than two billion people lack the requirements for basic sanitation.

The World's Safest Stocks On Track for Near 10 Percent Annual Earnings Growth / Companies / Water Sector

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo natural resource is as vital to human life as water. But that doesn’t mean it’s always a profitable investment.

Time and again, water investors have been tripped up by myriad factors, from changing weather patterns to volatile politics. Growing populations and industry degrade watersheds, wetlands, rivers, lakes and other areas critical to safe drinking water supplies.

Investing in Water Stocks: Three Names to Buy Right Now / Companies / Water Sector

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Vail writes: You've no doubt heard about the building scarcity of water. It's the reason savvy shareholders have been busy investing in water stocks.

Here's why.

Water may be everywhere but only 3% of it is fresh or suitable for drinking. Two-thirds of that is locked in glaciers and polar icecaps, which means less than 1% of the world's fresh water is available for human use.

The Multi-Billion Dollar Water Services Industry / Companies / Water Sector

By: Keith_Schaefer

There is a multi-billion dollar water industry forming before investors’ eyes in the oil patch.

It’s a huge opportunity for some great capital gains — but changing regulations, and a very attentive mainstream audience questioning business practises which have been in effect for decades, will will make it choppy water for investors.

Dividend-Paying Water Company Stocks Bound to Make a Splash / Companies / Water Sector

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: When it comes to commodities, attention typically focuses on gold and oil. But there's only one commodity that humans truly cannot live without - water.

Water covers nearly three-fourths of the Earth's surface, but 97.5% of that is undrinkable seawater, and 70% of what remains is frozen in glaciers.

The Geopolitics of Water in the Nile River Basin / Politics / Water Sector

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProf. Majeed A. Rahman writes: In Africa, access to water is one of the most critical aspects of human survival. Today, about one third of the total population lack access to water. Constituting 300 million people and about 313 million people lack proper sanitation. (World Water Council 2006). As result, many riparian countries surrounding the Nile river basin have expressed direct stake in the water resources hitherto seldom expressed in the past. In this paper, I argue that due to the lack of consensus over the use of the Nile basin regarding whether or not “water sharing” or “benefit sharing” has a tendency to escalate the situation in to transboundary conflict involving emerging dominant states such as the tension between Ethiopia-Egypt over the Nile river basin.  At the same time, this paper further contributes to the Collier- Hoeffler conflict model in order to analyze the transboundary challenges, and Egypt’s position as the hegemonic power in the horn of Africa contested by Ethiopia.   Collier- Hoeffler model is used to predict the occurrence of conflicts as a result of empirical economic variables in African states given the sporadic civil strife in many parts of Africa. In order to simplify my argument and analysis, I focused on Ethiopia and Egypt to explicate the extent of water crisis in the North Eastern part of Africa.

Fresh Water Ecological Overshoot / Commodities / Water Sector

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor most of human history we've been consuming resources at a rate lower than what the planet was able to regenerate.

Unfortunately we have crossed a critical threshold. The demand we are now placing on our planets resources appears to have begun to outpace the rate at which nature can replenish them.

Peak Oil? Why not Peak Water / Commodities / Water Sector

By: William_Bowles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeak Oil? Why not Peak Water, after all, water is much more crucial to life than oil ever will be and it's being consumed in vast quantities by the same economic system that chows oil?

In fact, water is a far more potent and relevant symbol of the way capitalism chows the planet than is oil. Although it too is a finite resource, it also a renewable resource through the process of recycling, something that is done by nature in another of its amazing cycles that keep (kept?) the biosphere stable; what we call homeostasis where life, chemistry, physics and geology all meet. Water is thus far more symbolic of the irrationality of capitalist production than is oil, where even a renewable resource is consumed by capitalism.

The global economy may be filled with uncertainly, but the world’s thirst for water is growing like mad. FACT: A total of $2.8 BILLION worth of water infrastructure deals were concluded at the Singapore conference.

Central Asia's Most Precious Resource is Water, Not Oil / Commodities / Water Sector

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn every drop of water there is a grain of gold." - Aral proverb

Since the 1991 collapse of the USSR, foreign investors have looked at the former Soviet space as a land rich in underdeveloped resources waiting for Western technology and finance to bring to the world market. Gold from Kyrgyzstan, uranium and oil from Kazakhstan, oil and natural gas from Azerbaijan - all have begun to make their way to the global market, generating rich profits for both their owners and developers.

Global Fresh Water Crisis, Peak Water / Politics / Water Sector

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“It should be obvious from simple arithmetic that population growth is on a direct collision course with increasingly scarce resources.”
Jeremy Grantham

The notion of peak water probably sounds crazy to most people. The earth is 70% covered by water. The water cycle replenishes water on a continuous basis. The global warming enthusiasts tell us that glaciers are melting and oceans are rising. This should make water more plentiful.

PowerShares Water ETF on the Rise / Companies / Water Sector

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Based on the pattern that has developed since the January spike low at 16.90, the PowerShares Water Resources Portfolio ETF (AMEX: PHO) is heading for the top of its price channels into the vicinity of 21.50/70 prior to the completion of the current upleg off of the 3/17 pivot low (18.11). If rice is in short supply, what about water? I don't know if access to fresh water will be a problem next week or in another 15 years, but that day is approaching. In any case, for my purposes right here, right now, I am looking for 21.50.
