Why Jim Rogers Still Loves Agricultural Commodities

Given all of the turmoil in markets this year, we have seen a number of investors change their positions on statements made in the past. Jim Rogers, for example, has now stated that he is looking into investing in Russia after snubbing the country for his entire investing life. But there is one thing that Rogers is still as bullish as ever on, agricultural commodities. It has been no secret that he has been a fan of these hard assets for quite some time, but a recent interview shows that he still loves these commodities and is as bullish as ever [for more agricultural news and analysis subscribe to our free newsletter].

Potash Corp./Saskatchewan (USA) (NYSE:POT)

Mr. Rogers justifies his love by going back to the basics of commodity investing. “With all commodities, the most important factor is supply and demand” he states. After all, a commodity is only worth what someone will pay for it and that price has a tendency to rapidly change over time. As for agricultural products specifically, Rogers notes that inventories are near historic lows as our global economy has been consuming more than we have been producing for nearly a decade. He is also quick to point out the disturbing trend of a shortage of farmers that could impact these assets.

Finally, Rogers weighed in on how the new open-ended quantitative easing program will impact the future of the ag world. If the continue to print more money, “that will just be icing on the cake” as far as Rogers is concerned. Money printing will debase the dollar and should allow for real assets like ag to make a nice jump. For those of you who buy in to Rogers’ theory on the agricultural world, we outline several options to invest in these hard assets to allow your portfolio to potentially rack up some nice profits [see also How Jim Rogers is Preparing for a Recession].
